Ohio State has made the latest cut for a well-regarded prospect in the class of 2019.


Thursday evening, four-star point guard prospect DJ Carton from Bettendorf, Iowa, posted a list of his top six schools to his Twitter page. Those schools are Ohio State, Iowa, Michigan, Marquette, Indiana and Xavier.

Rated as the nation’s No. 4 point guard prospect in his class according to the 247Sports.com composite rankings, the 6-1, 180-pound Carton is being recruited by assistant coach Mike Schrage for the Buckeyes. He took an unofficial visit to Ohio State during the weekend of April 14, and his coach told The Dispatch that it left an impression on Carton and his family.


“(The) family really enjoyed the visit,” coach Curtis Clark said shortly after the visit. “They just felt like it was a real family atmosphere. The coaching staff seemed really genuine and they really enjoyed that feel. They really thought the coaching staff was very genuine and had that family feel that, especially, his mother enjoyed.”


The Buckeyes are currently slated to have just one true point guard on the roster for the 2019-20 season: C.J. Walker, a Florida State transfer who will sit out the upcoming season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.


In mid-April, Clark said Carton had his eyes on making a college decision sometime this fall. The Buckeyes have one verbal commitment for the class of 2019 in five-star forward Alonzo Gaffney from Garfield Heights, Ohio, the top overall prospect in the state.


Carton is the No. 33 overall prospect in the country.
