Ohio State Has Nation's No. 4 Recruiting Class After DJ Carton Commitment

Chris Holtmann is putting together a stellar class.

Chris Holtmann is starting to heat up on the recruiting trail.

With the pledge of five-star point guard DJ Carton, the Ohio State men's basketball team now has the nation's No. 4 recruiting class, behind only USC, UCLA and Kentucky, sitting atop the Big Ten.

Carton joined four-star forward Alonzo Gaffney, the nation's No. 30 player, giving the Buckeyes a pair of top-30 players in the 2019 class. These two commitments combine to give Ohio State the second-highest per-recruit ranking of 99.03, trailing only Kentucky's 99.19.

This 2019 class is set to arrive in Columbus for the 2019-20 season, and could help make the Buckeyes legitimate title contenders.

It hasn't been all that long, but Holtmann's rebuild is already going tremendously.
