Chris Holtmann and the Basketball Buckeyes have been hard at work putting together elite level recruiting classes during these unprecedented times. The program continued to do so over this past weekend and the work may already be paying off.
Ohio State officially offered four-star combo-guard Jalen Warley (Norristown, PA/Wesstown School) following a virtual visit, according to Jake Weingarten of StockRisers.
Ohio State’s staff just offered five-star junior Jalen Warley during a virtual meeting, he told @Stockrisers. Will cut down his list the first week of June.— Jake (@jakeweingarten) May 29, 2020
The offer puts Ohio State among the likes of Creighton, Louisville, LSU, Marquette, Maryland, Michigan, Penn State, Oregon and Xavier in pursuit of earning a commitment from Warley.
The Buckeyes will soon learn if the virtual visit and offer were well received, as Warley is also planning on trimming his list down this week. He took to Twitter recently saying he will be releasing his top schools on June 7th.

Warley is one of the top prospects in the 2021 class, one where Ohio State already holds the No. 5 spot in the 247Sports class rankings. He is listed as the No. 3 CG in the country and is the No. 28 overall prospect despite position. Warley would make for an excellent addition alongside already verbally committed four-star CG Meechie Johnson and three-star power forward Kalen Etzler.
