Ohio State finds itself on yet another list of finalists for a sought after basketball recruit.
Four-star guard Eric Ayala announced his top-nine Tuesday evening, and the Buckeyes were on the list along with Arizona, Georgetown, Indiana, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Oregon and Syracuse.

The Buckeyes offered Ayala on June 29. The 6-foot-5, 180 pound guard out of Putnam Science Academy in Florida was high on the Eleven Warriors July Hot Board just a month ago and Ohio State appears to be making a push for Ayala's services.
The Buckeyes landed on forward Justin Ahrens' list of six schools Aug. 7. Ohio State's lone commit in the 2018 class is shooting guard Torrence Watson, who committed to the Buckeyes on July 10.
