“I just felt it was the right decision for me,” said Wesson. “It is a school I have always watched and I feel that I fit in well there and I like the coaches and players.” Ohio State has two post commitments in 2016 from Derek Funderburk and Micah Potter, but they sold Wesson on him being different from those two. “They told me about how they signed two centers, but they also told me those guys don’t play like me,” said Wesson. “I am bigger and bring something different to the table.” Wesson, who runs with All-Ohio Red during the AAU season, has been working hard on his jumper to be able to stretch off of pick and roll situations along with his ability to score and pass from the low block. This is the first commitment for the Buckeyes in the class of 2017.
Wesson makes local pick
The Ohio State Buckeyes continued their run on in-state post prospects on Friday. That is when local four-star class of 2017 center Kaleb Wesson picked the school. Wesson is a skilled center and this is a very solid pick up for the Buckeyes. It didn’t take Ohio State too long to figure out that they wanted Wesson. The Buckeyes came through with an early offer following his performance in April, and that led to the pre-July commitment.
