Friday night, the Buckeyes added their fourth commitment from the class when four-star shooting guard D'Angelo Russell committed.
According to Russell's father, Antonio, the 6-foot-3 scorer from Montverde (Fla.) Academy had been leaning that way for a while.
"D'Angelo just felt that he's been kind of convinced for the last week or two or maybe even the last month of school that he wanted to go to Ohio State," Russell's father told Rivals.com. "It is about the relationship that him and Thad Matta had. Jeff Boals the assistant, too, and everybody else at Ohio State, they all have a great relationship."
A natural scorer with length and range, Russell can also make plays off the dribble. He sees the floor well and is becoming a much better passer. He could end up playing some at either spot in the backcourt.
"They see him as a combo on and off the ball," the elder Russell said. "The first year maybe learning a role and playing the combo on and off, and then maybe the second year playing some at the point. Being a playmaker and doing what he's been doing, putting the ball in the basket."
Ranked No. 22 in the class of 2014, Russell joins what is looking like a great class. Already on board are five-star wing Keita Bates-Diop, rugged four-star wing Jae'Sean Tate and Rivals150 ranked three-star big man David Bell.
With his commitment out of the way, Russell can focus on getting stronger and playing his final summer and season of high school without the stress of being recruited.
"It's a relief knowing that my son is going to be able to further his education," Mr. Russell said. "He's with a wonderful staff, and at Ohio State the overall environment seems wonderful and like a perfect fit for my son."
