Earlier this month, Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann was in Georgia to see a pair of Indiana standouts from the class of 2018 battle at the UAA Finals.
Now, both of them hold offers from the Buckeyes. Eric Hunter, a three-star shooting guard from Indianapolis Tindley, held an offer from Butler and landed one from Holtmann at Ohio State in mid-June. On the other bench sat three-star small forward Aaron Henry from Indianapolis Ben Davis.
Today, Henry announced a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes on his Twitter page.
