As Keon Johnson narrows down his college choices, Ohio State is one of just three schools he's still considering.

The four-star shooting guard from Bell Buckle, Tennessee, revealed on Tuesday that he will decide between Ohio State, Tennessee and Virginia on Aug. 6.

Johnson is ranked as the No. 30 overall prospect in 247Sports' composite rankings for the recruiting class of 2020. Johnson was scheduled to visit Ohio State this past weekend, but was unable to make the trip due to a last-minute schedule conflict, a source told Eleven Warriors.

New Ohio State assistant coach Jake Diebler previously recruited Johnson when he was an assistant coach at Vanderbilt, and Johnson told Rivals in April that he "has a strong bond and relationship" with Diebler.

Ohio State does not currently have any commitments for 2020, but the Buckeyes are expected to add at least two players in the class.
