Ohio State has one verbal commitment for its class of 2018 and, as it stands, five scholarships still available. The summer evaluation period has come and gone, leaving recruits to start turning their focus toward their upcoming high school seasons.

It also means players are cutting down their lists of top schools. To that end, HOW MANY prospects have included the Buckeyes among their latest cuts in the last few days. Here’s a roundup:

Luther Muhammad, SG, Jersey City (N.J.) Hudson Catholic

In a graphic posted to Twitter, Muhammad announced his final five schools: Xavier, Ohio State, St. John’s, Virginia and West Virginia.

He doesn't have any official visits lined up but is known to definitely be taking one to see the Spartans. A three-star prospect in the 247Sports.com rankings, he's listed as the No. 6 prospect from Indiana, the No. 52 small forward in the country and the No. 197 overall player. 

Jeremiah Francis, PG, Pickerington Central

He's only entering his junior season, but Francis is generating significant national interest and recently added an offer from North Carolina. A four-star prospect in the class of 2019, Francis put out a top 10 on his Twitter page consisting of West Virginia, Purdue, Indiana, Florida State, North Carolina, Missouri, Texas Christian, Iowa, Dayton and Ohio State.

247Sports.com ranks him as the top prospect from Ohio in his class. ESPN ranks him second behind Gahanna's Jordan Mitchell, who will play at Montverde this season. 

Francis still has nearly two years to make a final decision, but he is a key focus for the Buckeyes as Chris Holtmann's coaching staff starts to get settled.
