Ohio State's search for a guard in the 2017 class has come to an end.

On Monday, three-star point guard Braxton Beverly committed to Ohio State, according to multiple reports.

Beverly, who attends Hargrave Military Academy, took an official visit to Ohio State over the weekend and it did not take long for the three-star point guard to commit. He's listed at 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds.


  • Class: 2017
  • Size: 5-11/170
  • Pos: PG
  • School: Hargrave (Hazard, KY)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★
  • Composite Rank: 307

Beverly is ranked as the No. 307 overall player in the country, according to 247Sports composite and is the nation's No. 62-ranked point guard. He was a first-team all-state performer in Kentucky before attending Hargrave, and lists his favorite NBA player as Jason Williams, so feel free to go ahead and start making “White Chocolate” references.

Beverly scored 70 points in a game this season for Hargrave. 

"There is something magical about Braxton Beverly," Hargrave head coach A.W. Hamilton told "He scored 70 in a game last year for us, and I took him out with 10 minutes to go. He could have had 100 had I left him in."

He had reported scholarship offers from Miami (Ohio), Belmont, Winthrop, Ball State and others – and at one time was a Miami commit.

“Beverly is a tough guard and a winner. What stood out to me is that he was able to start three years in the nike eybl, always showing poise against bigger, better athletes,” Corey Albertson, publisher of told Eleven Warriors. ”He's a kid who will find ways to help his team."

“His best attributes are probably his intangibles as a leader and floor setter who knows where guys need to be on both ends. He's not going to be a big scorer, but he also is an above average shooter.”

Beverly is Ohio State's second commit in the 2017 class. The Buckeyes already had a pledge from four-star center Kaleb Wesson.
