Loving Pops Early

Marc Loving fulfilled a dream on Thursday. He committed to a Big Ten program.

Marc Loving, a 6-foot-7 wing, grew up a fan of the Ohio State program. On Thursday he joined them, giving Thad Matta a verbal commitment.

"This is a dream come true for Marc," Angela Loving, Marc's mother, told Scout.com.

Xavier, Michigan and Michigan State were also under consideration, but he his familiarity with Ohio State won out.

"I would say that Marc decided to go with Ohio State number one because of their academic reputation and their athletic reputation," Loving's mother said. "He's known a bunch of poeple to go through the school."

Loving, a 2013 prospect, is a standout at Toledo (Ohio) St. Johns Jesuit.
