Dillon Mitchell no longer considering Ohio State, but Brice Sensabaugh decision looming
The Ohio State men’s basketball program is no longer in the running for one highly rated forward in the 2022 class but might be closing in on another.
Monday afternoon, five-star small forward Dillon Mitchell did not include the Buckeyes on his list of his final three schools published to social media. It came roughly two months after he was heavily linked with Ohio State and a little more than 24 hours before Brice Sensabaugh, his AAU teammate, plans to announce his college choice from a list of four finalists that includes the Buckeyes.

Sensabaugh, a four-star small forward playing at Orlando Lake Highland Prep, is scheduled to announce a commitment Tuesday at 4 p.m. He has narrowed his list of schools to Alabama, Florida, Georgia Tech and Ohio State. 247Sports.com ranks him as No. 75 national prospect, a significant climb after Sensabaugh entered the summer unranked in large part because he missed his entire junior season due to injury.

His father is an Ohio State alumnus, and Sensabaugh has family in Columbus. Within the last day, Sensabaugh has picked up three votes in the Rivals.com “FutureCast” predictions and one vote in the 247Sports “Crystal Ball” predictions – all for Ohio State.
Mitchell, ranked No. 28 nationally in the 247Sports composite database, will make a final selection from Florida State, Tennessee and Texas.
Ohio State has a four-man 2022 recruiting class and has been in the market for a wing/forward as a final piece.
