Chris Holtmann and the Ohio State Basketball Program have been working diligently to put together his next recruiting class for the 2022 cycle.
And in case you haven’t noticed, it’s pretty good. So good in fact that the Buckeyes’ 2022 class currently ranks as the best in the country. He has four commitments that have already been verbally committed, including three in the top 50 prospects according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
It remains to be seen if OSU will finish at the top of the leaderboard, as traditional Blue Bloods like North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, and North Carolina still run classes, but no matter how you look at it, it seems. be a top-five or top ten when all is said and done. That is, as long as the class stays and there is no defection from here until the day of the official signing.
So, in case you aren’t aware of the four players Ohio State is bringing in to keep the momentum going with the Buckeye basketball program, we’ve got them all here for you. We will continue to update the list if any changes occur.
Bruce Thorton – PG (4 stars)
Bruce Thornton will be one of the top players in the state, as he is arguably the best player on what many consider the best team in Georgia.
