The Ohio State basketball program has officially added to its 2018 recruiting class.
This week, four-star recruit Torrence Watson made his commitment to Ohio State official with a post on his personal twitter handle. The tweet was a collage of images, as well as a screenshot of a message Watson typed out on his phone.
Watson certainly had his pick of schools. The 6-foot-4, 175-pounder can do it all on the floor. Technically categorized as a shooting guard, Watson has excellent control of the ball and could wind up doing the bulk of the point guard duties as well.
Watson was the top target on a list that new coach Chris Holtmann was actively pursuing. With five available scholarships to give to basketball players around the country, the competition is stiff. Watson will be one of the five taking the spot on the OSU roster.
The Buckeyes went 17-15 last year under head coach Thad Matta, who’s relationship with the university was abruptly ended after his 13th season at Ohio State. It was the first season Matta failed to win at least 20 games, and only the fourth time in 13 years that he didn’t get the Buckeyes into the tournament.
Holtmann will be looking to start a legacy of his own, and it appears that it will star with Torrence Watson.
