And EJ Liddell Makes Ohio State a Top Contender

EJ Liddell

It's final: EJ Liddell has decided to go with Ohio State, a decision that broke the heart of Illinois and Missouri on Monday night. The two states were hoping up to the very last minute if something would sway the top 50 prospect to make a decision in their favor. Unfortunately, the force wasn't in them.

In the end, it wasn't an individual decision. EJ Liddell made the fateful choice in consultation with his first team: his family. For this, the Buckeyes have much to celebrate about the impending acquisition.

Ohio States 2019 Class

After all, the extremely tall EJ Liddell adds one more mighty powerhouse to a team that has been receiving a lot of extra boosts lately in terms of sign ups. With three of the 50 major commitments already coming their way, the Buckeyes are definitely the team to beat in terms of the potential lineup. EJ Liddell is definitely sending tremors down the spines of the other teams the moment his decision was announced.

Such an extremely powerful lineup for the Buckeyes in the very near future is nothing short of Herculean proportions. The EJ Liddell decision in Ohio State's favor had a lot to do with achieving almost instantaneous bromance with the rest of the team from the No. 48's Labor Day visitation. In EJ Liddell's own words, the male bonding couldn't have been any better, particularly with Alonzo Gaffney or DJ Carton.

Alonzo Gaffney Decides To Become A Buckeye

Alonzo Gaffney

Alonzo Gaffney decided to stay close to home when he attends college, which should be welcome news for fans who hoped that the forward would play for a college in his home state.

Chris Holtmann said that he was going to lock down Ohio's state borders as soon as he took the OSU head coaching job. He made his first big accomplishment toward achieving this goal when the five-star forward agreed to commit.

Since he can play multiple positions, Alonzo Gaffney has a great deal to offer OSU. His stock started to really climb in July, and many ranked him near the 18th prospect in their charts for this recruiting class.

Courtney Ramey Slated For Louisville Is Courted By Buckeye

CourtneyRamey

In hopes to add to the 2018 roster, Ohio State is actively recruiting Courtney Ramey. Ramey was previously committed to the Louisville Cardinals. The withdraw of the commitment has urged Chris Holtmann and the coaching staff to begin courting the senior point guard. This news comes just days before the signing of four other top ranked players. It appears that the Ohio State coaching staff is not done adding to the 2018 class.

Ohio State is not alone in the pursuits for the talented Ramey. Other programs pursuing the point guard include Texas, Oklahoma State and Villanova. This means that the Buckeyes are far from an automatic shoe in as the choice for Ramey. However, the coaching staff is hopeful as his 6'3" frame fits perfectly in the team that they are building for 2018.

Dane Goodwin Decommits From Ohio State

DaneGoodwin

Dane Goodwin, who had previously committed to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes when he was a freshman in high school, has now de-committed from the Ohio State team. His decision now effectively leaves Ohio State's 2018 recruiting class with no firm prospects.

Goodwin, a four-star shooting guard and Columbus native, is the No. 75 overall prospect for his class year, according to composite rankings. He is also Ohio's fourth-rated recruit. However, 270hoops.com reports that Ohio State may still remain an option for Goodwin, who first committed to the Buckeyes in December 2014. Notre Dame is also pursuing the Upper Arlington Ohio recruit.

Ohio State Welcomed Nojel Eastern In Official Visit

Nojel Eastern

Nojel Eastern is considering Ohio State for his college career. The standout from Evanston Township is one of the top recruits in the country. He announced the official visit on Twitter and said it would happen early in November.

From the class of 2017, Eastern is a 4-star swingman who is ranked as high as #3 in his home state of Illinois. On a national level, he is #14 among small forwards and #69 in overall prospects. His numbers have been impressive as a junior with 14.9 points, 4 assists, and 6.5 rebounds per game - good enough to lead his team to a 23-6 season. This excellent all-around player stands 6 feet, 6 inches and weighs 210 pounds.

His visit will coincide with the scrimmage between the Buckeyes and Ohio University. This should give Eastern with the opportunity to watch the team play up-close. Coach Thad Matta expressed his interest in recruiting Eastern with two visits to his home.
