One of the biggest weeks in recent history for Ohio State men’s basketball recruiting might get a feather in its cap tonight.
The Buckeyes have landed two verbal commitments for their class of 2018 already this week, and Thursday night another top target announced that he will be revealing his decision tonight at 8 p.m.
That would be Luther Muhammad, a four-star guard from Jersey City (N.J.) Hudson Catholic.
I would like to thank my family, friends, coaches over the years who have supported me and all the coaches who have recruited me.— Luther Muhammad (@LutherMuhammad) September 22, 2017
I’ll be committing tomorrow at 8pm!— Luther Muhammad (@LutherMuhammad) September 22, 2017
On August 4, Muhammad released a list of his top five schools: Xavier, Ohio State, St. John’s, Virginia and West Virginia. He has taken four official visits: St. John’s (June 23), Virginia (August 19), Ohio State (Sept. 8) and Xavier (Sept. 15). He was set to visit West Virginia this weekend.
247Sports.com ranks Muhammad as the No. 71 overall prospect in the country and the nation’s No. 14 shooting guard. He’s a consensus four-star recruit, with ESPN placing him at No. 94 overall.
Tuesday night, Ohio State landed a commitment from four-star power forward Jaedon LeDee from Houston (Texas) The Kinkaid School. That was followed Wednesday by a verbal commitment from four-star guard Duane Washington from Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon.
The Buckeyes could take as many as six players in this class but are more likely to stop at five. They will host Versailles, Ohio, small forward Justin Ahrens for an official visit this weekend.
