New commitment for Buckeye men's hoops

Ohio State has landed their third commitment in this year's recruiting class in Fork Union (VA) Military Academy PF Jermyl Jackson-Wilson.

The Buckeye men's basketball recruiting class grew to three this weekend as they secured a verbal commitment from power forward Jermyl Jackson-Wilson from Fork Union (VA) Military Academy.

Sources told that Jackson-Wilson, who stands at 6-7, 215, made his commitment to Ohio State Sunday during his Saturday-Monday official visit. He was hosted by J.J. Sullinger on the visit.

Ohio State first noticed Jackson-Wilson when he played for King High School in Milwaukee alongside a point guard (Dupree Fletcher) that they were recruiting. He also played AAU ball with Fletcher.

"Jermyl is originally from Milwaukee," said Dave Telep of "He had a great spring and made some high-major visits. Not happy with his choices, he opted for prep school and began gaining high-major interest.

"He's a young man who plays with a lot of energy. He's got a live body and probably will spend time at both forward positions."

Jackson-Wilson becomes the third member of this class along with Matt Terwilliger and Jamar Butler.

The Buckeyes have one scholarship remaining. They are going to welcome in Michigan C/PF Al Horford this weekend for an official visit; however, Horford's visit is contingent on the fact that he gets his test scores on the mail.

Ohio State is still very much in the running for small forward/shooting guard Malik Hairston.
