Buckeye basketball coach Chris Holtmann already has two commitments in the 2021 recruiting class, but the class for next year was empty. That is, until Monday. 2020 guard Eugene Brown III, out of Decatur, Georgia announced on Twitter that he is committed to Ohio State.
Brown is listed at 6'6 and plays on the wing. According to 24-7 sports, he is the 112th rated prospect nationally in the 2020 class and the 26th best shooting guard. Brown missed most of last season after suffering a broken leg. He returned to the court in the spring and chose Ohio State over schools like Louisville, Butler, Georgia and Georgia Tech.
