The Buckeyes add a solid piece to the 2018 recruiting class puzzle.

When four-star shooting guard Torrence Watson recently decommitted from the Ohio State basketball program, it left Chris Holtmann and crew searching the recruiting trail for another face of their class of 2018.

Those days are now behind the Buckeyes' coaching staff, as they’ve finally found their man for the job.

Dishing out his pledge to Ohio State on Tuesday over chances to attend universities such as Texas A&M, LSU, UCLA, and many other top-notch programs, four-star small forward Jaedon LeDee is now a Buckeye verbal commit.

A threat to score inside and out, LeDee will add another much-needed stat sheet stuffer to the Ohio State basketball roster. Showcasing his many talents on the court last season, the future Buckeye averaged over 20 points and 10 rebounds a contest as a junior at The Kinkaid School in Houston, Texas

Choosing to continue his education and playing days at Ohio State after having a chance to visit the campus and meet with the staff earlier this month, LeDee is currently considered the 31st small forward and 115th overall prospect in the class of 2018, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
