On Monday, just after 12 noon ET, Eugene Brown III announced that he would be playing his collegiate basketball for Chris Holtmann and the Ohio State Buckeyes. The 2020 shooting guard from Decatur, Ga. is a four-star prospect and the sixth-rated player in the state. He is also slotted in as the 26th player nationally and 112th overall by 247Sports Composite rankings.
In addition to the Buckeyes, Brown also had offers from more than a dozen schools including Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Butler, and Texas A&M. Brown visited Ohio State over the weekend, and even though he had officials slated for A&M, Louisville, and both of the in-state programs, he decided to commit to the Buckeyes.
