BOOM! Chris Holtmann Lands Five-Star Alonzo Gaffney For Ohio State

Now we’re talking. After having to piece together recruiting classes because of timing and holes in the roster, Holtmann just landed his biggest fish ever for the future.

Alonzo Gaffney, Ohio’s No. 1 rated recruit, No. 3 rated power forward nationally, and No. 18 rated prospect overall has announced his commitment to the Buckeyes’ 2019 recruiting class.

It’s the highest rated prospect to commit to Ohio State since D’Angelo Russell and one that is much needed to restore the need to keep Ohio kids at Ohio State.

Besides Ohio State, he held offers from Kansas, Louisville, Florida, Michigan State and others.

At 6-9, 190, Gaffney may need to put some more meat on his bones, but as it is, he’s an incredible athlete that can clean up the boards and get his shot off inside, but who also has the ability to hit the mid-range jumper when needed.

Even more, he still has room to grow in his game and should be ready to make an immediate impact for the 2019-20 season.

And in case you’ve been following, that’s the same season that Florida State transfer point guard C.J. Jackson will also be available in Columbus.

Yes, things are looking up on the banks of the Olentangy.
