    Dominiq Penn (5'11 PG, Dublin Coffman, 2020): Speaking with a member of the Dublin Coffman coaching staff on Friday night, Penn was referred to as "the best player I've ever coached." That is saying something considering the high-level talent that has come through the doors of the Rocks basketball program over the years. In yet another big showing, Penn scored 14 of his game-high 27 points in the fourth quarter of a 64-57 win over Hilliard Davidson. Penn knocked down three triples, got to the line at will and controlled tempo on both ends for the Rocks. Visiting Michigan on Saturday, Penn is capturing the attention of high-major coaches all over, as the sophomore already holds an Ohio State offer.

    Dominiq Penn has Ohio State “up there at the top”
    Following his unofficial visit this weekend, three-star 2020 point guard Dominiq Penn can’t count how many times he has visited Ohio State. It’s just not possible – for good reason.

    Penn, the son of former Buckeye guard and Ohio State Athletics Hall of Famer member Scoonie Penn, lives in Columbus and plays for Dublin Coffman High School. He lives just down the road, and now, his dad works for the program as director of recruiting and player development.

    Unlike most prospects who take unofficial visits to Ohio State, Penn doesn’t need certain things explained. He's familiar with both the university and the basketball program. He said some of the favorite parts of his visits come when he’s able to hang out with his friends who attend Ohio State.

    “It's just a little different there just because I live here,” said Penn, the No. 130 prospect in the country.

    Despite the family connection to the program, Penn said he’s treated the same by Ohio State as any other school.

    For his visit this weekend, that meant Penn got to the Schottenstein Center at 11 p.m. Saturday to watch the entire practice. Then, he met with the coaching staff before heading to Skull Session prior to Ohio State’s football game against Indiana. Penn soon headed to the basketball team’s tailgate, where he spent a lot of his time getting to know the first-year players.

    “I know basically the whole team, and I'm trying to talk to all the freshmen,” said Penn, noting he’s spent a lot of time recently talking to freshman guard Luther Muhammad.

    Then, Penn headed to the football game where he hung out on the sidelines during pregame warmups, then watched from the stands. Coincidently, he sat just two seats away from five-star 2020 football commit Paris Johnson Jr.

    Though he has been to Ohio State for visits at least 10 times and is one of three in-state 2019 prospects with scholarship offers from the program, Penn’s process of evaluating his options has just begun. He plans to start scheduling visits to other schools soon. He will take about four visits in December and many more in 2019.

    At this point in the process, the Buckeyes sit in a good spot with Penn, but he emphasized he expects to take looks at many different schools to fully evaluate his options.

    “I mean, I've been to Ohio State a whole lot of times, so Ohio State's up there at the top of the list, but I still have to take a whole lot of other visits first that I have not even done yet,” Penn said.

    Penn holds offers from Ohio State and a variety of Mid-American Conference teams, but many other programs have shown interest, Penn said. Notre Dame, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and the “majority” of Big Ten schools, including Michigan, Michigan State and Indiana, are among the schools that have expressed interest in him.

    The 6-foot point guard said he would be the prototypical point guard for whichever team he ends up playing for.

    “Basically, making plays is what I like to do the best,” Penn said. “I love to pass and shooting, as well. Any kind of scoring and getting my teammates involved are my mains things I like to do.”

    Dominiq Penn (2020 – Dublin Coffman)
    Three-star 6-foot, 155-pound point guard
    Scoonie Penn works as Ohio State's director of player development after starring for the Buckeyes two decades ago, and his son might eventually join him. Ohio State offered Penn a scholarship on Oct. 29, 2017.

    RELATED Full Court Press: Dominiq Penn Has Ohio State “Up There At The Top,” Toneari Lane Impressed By Visit And Pair Of Offers To Five-Star Prospects

    Penn has taken visits to other Big Ten schools, but doesn't have any offers from schools in major conferences other than Ohio State. Akron, Duquesne, Kent State, Saint Louis and Stony Brook are among the schools that have offered Penn a scholarship.

    The Penn lineage in Columbus is strong, and Dominiq could further it. He averaged 19 points per game as a junior at Dublin Coffman and dropped 38 against Westerville North in early February.

    Most of Ohio State's offers and interest in prospects in the 2020 recruiting cycle has been focused on wings and forwards, but given his talent, location and name, Penn will be someone to watch.
