In what should not come as a surprise to many, five star center Jahlil Okafor officially cut Ohio State from his list of schools over the weekend. The class 2014 elite big man announced he is down to four programs. The Chicago native is now only considering Baylor, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. It is a well known fact that Okafor wants to play with five star point guard Tyus Jones on the next level. Jones also has those four on his short list.

Even though Thad Matta and the Bucks are out of contention for Okafor, they are still smack dab in the fight for Texas center Elbert Robinson. On Tuesday, the near 7-0 300 pound, four star Robinson will make his college decision just a little over a week after visiting Columbus. Some of the programs OSU are battling for Elbert are LSU, Nebraska and Georgia Tech. To read more on Elbert's college decision, check out this article by our Zach Fleer.

From the looks of this tweet, Robinson can't wait to get the recruiting process over with and commit to his future college program:

Some of the nations top 2014,2015 and 2016 basketball prospects were in Colorado over the weekend participating in the USA under 17 National team mini camp. Ohio State had plenty of offerees and targets out west. 2014 center Myles Turner, 2015 big men, Ivan Rabb, Doral Moore, guard Eric Davis and 2016 recruits Tyus Battle, VJ King, Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum are just a few that attended the camp.

2016 Akron St.Vincent St. Mary wing VJ King made the Buckeye state proud over the weekend, showing he isn't just one of the best from Ohio but the nation. The 6-5ish King, turned heads with his smart play and leadership skills on the court from someone of his age, which isn't out of the ordinary for King.
