D'Angelo Russell doesn't enroll w/ other Ohio State basketball freshmen

USA TODAY Sports

Per Bob Baptist, Russell is held up due to an issue with his transcript.

According to the Columbus Dispatch's Bob Baptist, the prize jewel of Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class, five-star guard D'Angelo Russell, failed to report with other freshmen joining the Ohio State basketball program this summer. Per Baptist, Russell has not had his high school transcript cleared by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

Russell headed to Columbus as the possible answer to the Buckeyes' offensive woes of the last year and change. The guard, in addition to being able to help push the offensive flow for the Buckeyes, Russell can actually consistently score the ball, an issue that often plagued the Bucks at time this past season.

Russell, a smooth lefty, was expected to join a class that includes forwards Jae'Sean Tate, Keita Bates-Diop, and former Garfield Heights center, Dave Bell. Before choosing the Buckeyes, Russell turned down overtures from the likes of Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, and Florida.

LGHL's Zach Fleer spoke with Russell last summer about his commitment and he spoke on issues ranging from why he chose the Buckeyes to what he wanted to work on his game before reporting to OSU:
