Ohio State will host Howard graduate transfer James Daniel on a visit next month, according to an ESPN report.


The Buckeyes are one of three schools set to host the nation’s top scorer from two seasons ago. Daniel will visit them on May 14 before also taking trips to Tennessee on the 27th and Michigan two days later.

As Jeff Goodman also mentioned, DePaul remains in the mix for the 6-0, 175-pound guard. As a junior, Daniel led Division I with an average of 27.1 points per game, but an ankle injury limited him to only two games last season. In 90 career appearances for the Bison, Daniel averaged 21.5 points per game and shot 36.6 percent (532 for 1,452) from the field.


The Buckeyes have three available scholarships for next season presuming converted walk-ons Joey Lane and Jimmy Jent are removed from scholarship.


On the graduate transfer front, Ohio State has also been linked with Pitt guard Cameron Johnson, who will have two years of eligibility remaining. The Buckeyes are also recruiting prep senior Mark Smith of Edwardsville, Illinois, who is reportedly visiting campus this weekend.
