CLEVELAND — With sports on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, a former Ohio State basketball player is taking a unique opportunity to share his current living situation from Italy where he now plays professionally. Aaron Craft, who played for the Buckeyes from 2010-2014, posted a video message on his Twitter account while the country is on lockdown.
The 29-year-old Craft, who now plays in Trento, Italy for Aquila Basket Trento, said in a video statement that he, along with his wife and young son are, "doing fine," while admitting they have experienced "moments of panic."
Craft said the plan for him and his family are to obey the laws and ride "this thing out."
In his time at Ohio State, Craft helped the Buckeyes win two Big Ten regular-season and three conference tournament championships. Craft went undrafted in 2014, but played with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State's NBA G League affiliate before opting to play professionally overseas.
In his video message on Twitter, Craft maintains that he and his family are looking forward to the next 14 days together and trust that the necessary precautions are in place to keep them safe.
