Buckeye Basketball Lands 4-Star Recruit
Ohio State is already working on one of the best recruiting classes in the country and it just got even better.
Coach Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes just got a commitment from four-star forward EJ Liddell today — giving the program its third verbal commitment for the class of 2019, joining Alonzo Gaffney, who committed in April and DJ Carton, who committed in July.
At 6-foot-7, 220 pounds, Liddell was named Illinois Mr. Basketball and earned Gatorade Player of the Year honors at Belleville West High School. He averaged 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game as a junior and holds school records for points in a season (708) and points in a career (1,759).
He picked Ohio State after narrowing down his final list to OSU, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kansas State.
