D'Angelo Russell officially signs with Ohio State

USA TODAY Sports

Five star guard D'Angelo Russell officially becomes a member of the Buckeye basketball family after signing his Letter of Intent with Ohio State.

With the early signing period already in full swing, Thad Matta and staff have received the National Letter of Intent from another future Buckeye. Five star guard, D'Angelo Russellis the latest class of 2014 commit to sign on the dotted line and officially become an Ohio State student athlete, joining forwards, Jae'Sean TateKeita Bates-Diop and Garfield Heights center, Dave Bell.

Russell a smooth, lefty, who can play either guard position on the court committed to the Buckeyes in early June, soon after visiting Ohio State and connecting with the staff and players. The 6-4 180 pound, Russell, picked OSU over opportunities at some of the most prestigious college basketball programs in the country. Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina and Florida are just a few of the teams to send out a scholarship offer to D'Angelo during the recruiting process.

Our Zach Fleer caught up with D'Angelo over the summer soon after his commitment and had him touch on subjects from what made him decide to pick the Buckeyes to what he wanted to work on before reaching the college level:

It doesn't matter if its AAU hoops, where he averaged 14 points a contest during the EYBL season, the camp circuit against the nations best or on the prep level for powerhouse Montverde Academy (FL), the Louisville, Kentucky native always seems to be one of the players to catch your eye on the court. As a junior, Russell was a key contributor and helped Montverde finish with a 27-2 overall record and a National High School Invitational Championship.

From the looks of things, before he suits up for the Bucks next season, Russell and his Eagles teammates just might be in line to win another Championship as you can see for yourself with these highlights of him and the squad in action from a few weeks ago at the Hoop Exchange Fall Festival held in Orlando, Florida:
