Before they team up at Ohio State next season, a pair of 2019 recruits will take the court together this April for a high school all-star game.

Point guard DJ Carton and forward E.J. Liddell, who both signed with the Buckeyes in November, will be part of the Allen Iverson Roundball Classic. The event, which will take place April 24, will put Carton and Liddell on the same team: “Team Honor.”

The location of the game, as well as a schedule, venue and broadcast information will be announced at a later date, according to the release.

Ohio State also signed a third player, Alonzo Gaffney, for its class. All three players are four-star prospects in the composite rankings, giving the Buckeyes the No. 10 class in the nation.

Coach Chris Holtmann said earlier this season that at least one of the three was on a short list to make the McDonald’s All-American Game but did not identify which of the three it was.

The Buckeyes could still add to the class of 2019, Holtmann said recently.
