Ohio State basketball got a boost from a familiar place. Former Ohio State decommit Mickey Mitchell has decided he wants to stay with his previous commitment and become a Buckeye. The 6'7, 210-pound small forward originally committed to the Buckeyes on Aug. 22 last year, but then rumors started swirling about a possible decommitment, especially after his older brother, Mike Mitchell, left the Ohio State football program and transferred to Texas Tech. The younger Mitchell finally decided to decommit from Ohio State on Aug. 21, a little under a month ago.

The change of heart is good news for Thad Matta and his coaching staff, as Mitchell rejoins his fellow classmates Austin Grandstaff, Daniel Giddens, and A.J. Harris. Mitchell is rated as a four-star prospect and ranked as the 16th best small forward in the country, as well as being ranked as the 10th best prospect at any position in the state of Texas.
