Like we needed more bad news about recruiting... This time in basketball

On a day where everyone is already a bit down over the losses of Wes Lunt and those two high-schoolers who foolishly chose Lexington Basketball academy's football team over Strong's Fierce Louisville Cardinals, we managed to lose a basketball recruit as well.

D'Angelo Russell, No. 24 in the ESPN 60, committed to Ohio State on Friday night.

"The Buckeyes edged Michigan State and national champion Louisville for the services of a versatile, highly regarded guard. Russell, known best for his catch-and-shoot effectiveness and scoring acumen for National High School Invitational champion Montverde Academy (Fla.), brings a dual-threat element to Matta's backcourt. He is ranked the nation's No. 24 overall prospect in the Class of 2014" - Dave Telep, ESPN

However, we are not in a bad place with other guards and our backcourt is already loaded up. I have no doubt CRP is hot on the trail already.

Go Cards!
