Upon signing in November, Satterfield was a five-star prospect out of Christ the King in New York City, a high school that produced former and current WNBA superstars Chamique Holdsclaw, Sue Bird and Tina Charles. Satterfield was ranked as the 39th overall prospect by ESPN and the 32nd by prospectnation.com, and was also named to the 2019 Naismith High School Girls’ Watch List. She is currently a four-star prospect and ranks 88th overall in the 2019 class.
Satterfield appeared in 18 games this season and averaged just 8.1 minutes, 2.4 points and 1.8 rebounds per game. Ohio State welcomed five total freshman to campus this season and Satterfield has taken a backseat to other first-year players such as Kierstan Bell and Jacy Sheldon, who’ve combined to average 18.9 points per game.
The Buckeyes sit at 12-9 overall and 5-5 in Big Ten play entering Thursday’s road contest in Illinois.
