The Ohio State Buckeyes added another piece to their already very impressive 2010 recruiting class on Tuesday morning when J.D. Weatherspoon decided to stay close and play for his hometown school.
"It's offical, he's a Buckeye," said Weatherspoon's AAU coach and family friend Benji Burke.
"He just talked to Coach Matta and it is confirmed," said Burke. "They spoke this morning and he committed."
Already the Buckeyes had locked down a very impressive five man class, three of which play on the same AAU team, and now Weatherspoon is the fourth member of the three time national champions, All-Ohio Red to pick Ohio State.
The three star prospect out of Columbus is one of the best athletes in the entire country, and is known for his highlight level dunks. After initially committing early to play for Sean Miller at Xavier, Weatherspoon opened things up after Miller departed for Arizona.
After opening it up, schools such as Maryland, Purdue, Miami, and West Virginia all inquired about Weatherspoon, but in the end he decided to stay home.
Weatherspoon, who is ranked number 131 in the country, teamed with current Buckeye commitment Jared Sullinger to win a state title at Northland High School before the duo got going once again the summer.
Now Ohio State has six commitments, and this should wrap up their 2010 recruiting class.
