Temple transfer Lee headed to Ohio State

Indiana had targeted the 6-foot-9 big man, but Anthony Lee is a Buckeye.

Indiana's top big man target for next year is headed elsewhere.

Anthony Lee, a 6-foot-9 Temple transfer, committed to Ohio State while on an official visit on Saturday. It was his first of five planned visits.

Lee was supposed to visit Louisville on Sunday. He told AllHoosiers.com last week that the Hoosiers were "the favorite," but that changed at some point. Lee could be an immediate starter at Ohio State.

He would have, of course, had the same opportunity at Indiana. I didn't see this fast of a commitment coming, but recruiting is a crazy game, and it never ceases to surprise me.

Now Indiana's 2014 targets are limited to forwards Josh Cunningham and Yante Maten at this point. There's always the chance that other players could become available, especially if UNLV coach Dave Rice leaves for the South Florida job. That could potentially open up Dwayne Morgan and Goodluck Okonoboh, former IU targets.
