Musa Jallow signs for Ohio State basketball, and agrees to a 2017 reclassification
The team for Ohio State basketball next season previously consisted of eight scholarship players. For this reason, Chris Holtmann the coach was on the hunt for some fresh talent.
On Friday, he found just what he was looking for.
Musa Jallow, the Indiana based four star wing, stated on Twitter that he had committed to Ohio State on Friday evening. This former prospect for 2018 will start a year earlier than originally intended, and play for the Buckeyes next season.
The 200 pound, six foot five inch small forward opted for the Buckeyes, instead of Vanderbilt, Indiana, Stanford and Virginia. At Butler, he was a top priority target for Holtmann. He has a 120 overall player rating in 2017 composite ratings.
On average, Jallow scored 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 24.1 points per match for Bloomington North in 2016.
Ohio State will gain a versatile, athletic wing who can defend four positions. Also, he could offer some guard depth. The Buckeyes need to improve this, because Kam Williams and C.J. Jackson are their only guards at the moment. Williams claims he has been developing his point guard technique recently, in case he is required there. Jallow might be a possibility too.
Jallow is the third player to join Ohio State in 2017. Kyle Young and Kaleb Wesson are the other two.
