Less than two weeks after signing a pair of Class of 2018 players, Ohio State women’s basketball has its first verbal commitment for its 2019 class.
Dublin Coffman guard Jacy Sheldon announced her commitment via Twitter on Sunday night.//
As a sophomore last season, Sheldon was a standout point guard on a Dublin Coffman team that won 25 games to tie a program best. The Shamrocks also won an OCC Central championship.
Sheldon averaged 23.1 points, 6.6 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 5.3 steals while shooting 58.3 percent from the floor as a sophomore. Also in the mix were Michigan State, Michigan, Indiana, Vanderbilt and Dayton.
Dublin Coffman kicks off its 2017-18 season next week with a game against Notre Dame Academy.
The Class of 2019 will be an important one for Ohio State, with Canton McKinley’s Kierstan Bell, Africentric guard Jordan Horston, and Rogers High School (Toledo) guard Zia Cooke all ranked in the top seven of the ESPN HoopGurlz Super 60.
Ohio State’s 2018 class currently stands at two: St. Andrew’s School (RI) guard Janai Crooms, ranked 63rd in the Class of 2018 by ESPN, and Aaliyah Patty, a 6-3 post player from Montini Catholic High School in Lombard, Illinois.
Ohio State takes on Memphis on Thursday in the opening round of the Play4Kay Showcase in Las Vegas.
