Top prospects list OSU among leaders

Chris Holtmann and the basketball Buckeyes have yet to lock up a class of 2020 commitment, but that could soon change.

Recently making the top lists of Eugene Brown, and others, Ohio State now finds their name among the leaders for two more highly sought after senior prospects.

According to Paul Biancardi, four-star center Mark Williams is concentrating on five programs. Earning over 20 offers throughout the recruiting process, the 7-foot-1 big man looks to be down to Ohio State, Duke, Michigan, Stanford, and UCLA.

Coming off of a junior campaign where he averaged almost a dozen rebounds a contest, Williams isn’t down low to just grab boards, the guy can score too. Putting up nearly 20 points a game for Norfolk Academy (VA), he’ll now reportedly take those talents to IMG Academy (FL), a program most Ohio State fans should know from their yearly success on the gridiron.

Another Florida prep program that might sound familiar to Buckeye Nation is Montverde Academy. Producing tons of talent every season, college coaches from across the nation flock to their campus to recruit their talent.

This season, 6-foot-5 shooting guard Moses Moody has his fair share of coaches trying to add him to their future roster. Now down to seven schools, Moody has his eyes currently on OSU, USC, Michigan, Oregon, Arkansas, Florida and the University of Kansas.

Before you verbally commit to a school you usually visit their campus first, and from reports, Moody, who averaged 17 points per game during this past EYBL season, will do just that this weekend.

His first overall official trip, Chris Holtmann the rest of the staff at OSU will get their shot to show Moody what it would be like to suit up in the Scarlet and Gray on and off of the basketball court.

Will the Buckeyes add Williams or Moody to the fold soon? Only time will tell. Stick with Land-Grant Holy Land for the latest.
