"He's a guy that has soaked in everything he possibly could of his senior year. I don't know that very many guys are capable to do that like the way he has."

Bill Self Head Coach

“I’ll say it tonight, he’s a frontrunner for national player of the year. We said that about Frank Mason, Devonte Graham was in the mix there and Ochai’s got better every year.”

Fran Fraschilla ESPN

“It’s beyond what I think anybody could have expected. Like, he hasn’t been very good, he’s been great. And I don’t know how many people were thinking about him before the first ball was bounced in a game this year, that he would be in the conversation for national player of the year at this time. But he is, and he’s been clutch, he’s been efficient, he’s added to his game."

Jay Bilas ESPN

"That’s the best player in the country right now to date. And no one can say they’ve made more clutch plays than what he has for us this year

Bill Self Head Coach

“I’m blown away by Ochai. Just how he has handled it. He makes that big shot and he was more concerned about what we have to do to win the game. That was done with now we’re playing overtime. Everyone around him is losing their minds and he’s just like ‘let’s get to the next play.

Seth Greenberg ESPN

“He’s the best player in the country as you saw tonight. He played defense, played offense, played his heart out. He’s one of the most complete players in college basketball, a leader by example. It’s exciting to see him play at that level,”
