Potter picks the Buckeyes

Three-star prospect Micah Potter has decided to stay in-state and selected Ohio State.

It didn’t take too long for Micah Potter to make his decision. The Mentor (Ohio) product received an offer from Ohio State following the conclusion of his high school season, and roughly a month after getting that offer Potter made his commitment.

At 6-foot-10 and 240 pounds, Potter brings legit size to the center position, and also he has a nice shooting touch. In fact one of the things that Potter does best is face the rim and make the mid-range jumper.

Now after receiving offers from Ohio State, West Virginia, Akron, Iowa, NC State, and Clemson, Potter has chosen to play his college ball in Columbus.

Potter announced his commitment by saying, "Proud to say that I am officially a Buckeye."

According to Potter suiting up for the Scarlet and Gray is a dream come true for him.

"Ohio State has always been a dream school of mine," said Potter. "The visit this past weekend just made me feel like it was home and that was the place I needed to be."

This is the second in-state pledge for the Buckeyes in the last two weeks. Four-star Derek Funderburk got things started, and now a three-star in Potter joins him. The two give the Buckeyes legit size on the frontcourt and add to the depth on the roster.
