Houston Forward Jaedon LeDee Makes A 2018 Commitment


Jaedon LeDee, the 2018 four star forward prospect from the Houston Kinkaid School, made a commitment to the Ohio State basketball team last Tuesday. He becomes the first big recruit of Chris Holtmann's first complete recruiting class. 2018 is seen as Holtmann’s real test, if he can build a quality team with great recruits at Ohio State.

Jaedon LeDee

At 230 pounds and six foot eight inches in height, LeDee was deliberating between Texas A&M and Ohio State, when he declared on Monday that he intended to reveal his selection on Tuesday. Considered a Texas A&M lean due to it being in LeDee’s hometown.

Kyle Young Commits To Ohio State


On Monday night, Kyle Young switched his commitment from Butler to Ohio State. Coming out of Massillon Jackson, Young intends to enroll at Ohio State shortly so that he can start working out with the Buckeyes. Head coach, Chris Holtmann precedes Young. Last summer, Holtmann encouraged Young to choose the Bulldogs over Ohio State.

Rated as the No. 77 player in the country, Young is a four-star forward who is hoped to help the Buckeyes basketball team. He stands as 6-foot-8 and is 205 pounds, and joins Andre Wesson and Keita Bates-Diop on the team. Young does play better offense than Funderburk, and is more versatile than Wesson. Wesson was a choice of Holtmann and Butler for the 2016 recruitment, but Ohio State was able to top them.

Ohio State Buckeye Basketball Recruiting and Its 2016 Promises

Washington Wizards v/s Philadelphia 76ers November 23, 2010

Thad Matta has been in charge for the Ohio state basketball team since 2006. The OSU basketball head coach had impressed us with his Thad Five where he decided to use the services of five high-profile recruits including Mike Conley, Greg Oden, David Lighty, Othello Hunter and Daequan Cook. Within almost ten years of time, Coach Matta is known as the winning-est coach in program history after presenting a number of successful seasons for the team as well as for the fans. This year, Matta is still pretty confident about his strategy as he has signed a number of new players that are believed to meet his expectations. This time, the head coach decided to fill his 2015 recruiting class with Daniel Giddens, JaQuan Lyle, A.J. Harris, Mickey Mitchell and Austin Grandstaff. This recruiting class has not come up with a nick name though.

Sticking with the same team he had last season is almost an impossible mission as he had lost a number of crucial player including D'Angelo Russle. Thad Matte soon realized that he had to make an immediate impact to the team by presenting a new wave of The Thad Five.

Thad Matta is setting the scene on fire.  He has several notable transfers coming to the program.  He has also been able to sign some promising classes.  Matta did not have to take drastic measures for this upcoming season.
