The Ohio State women’s basketball team on Wednesday added the fourth member of its 2018 freshman class, landing a commitment from Spanish forward Aixa Wone.

The 6-foot-2 power forward from Pamplona, Spain, visited both Ohio State and Missouri in April.

Wone has been a regular in the Spanish women’s basketball national team system and participated in the 2017 FIBA U18 Women’s European Championship, in which she averaged 7.3 points in 20 minutes per game.

Wone’s size will be needed on a team that loses a significant chunk of its rebounding from 2017-18 with Stephanie Mavunga, Linnae Harper and Alexa Hart having graduated.

Ohio State’s incoming freshman class now has two international players — Wone and Hungarian forward Dorka Juhasz — as well as as Rhode Island guard Janai Crooms and Illinois forward Aaliyah Patty. The freshman class is coach Kevin McGuff’s biggest since the class of 2014, which featured Kelsey Mitchell, Asia Doss, Hart and Makayla Waterman.

The Buckeyes will feature eight new players in the 2018-19 season. Ashanti Abshaw of Cleveland State, Adreana Miller of LaSalle, Najah Queenland of Pacific and Carly Santoro of Bowling Green have committed to Ohio State as graduate transfers.
