5* Louisville native SG D'Angelo Russell to Ohio State. What this means for 2014 recruiting

Last night, D'Angelo Russell committed to Thad Matta's Ohio State Buckeyes. Although he was considered an OSU lean, it is somewhat disappointing to lose out on a homegrown kid. He attended Central High School before transferring to Montverde Academy for his sophomore season and played AAU with Quentin Snider and the Louisville Magic before joining the Nike EYBL circuit this summer (no surprise he chose a Nike affiliated school). Other top targets at the 2 guard position include 5* Isaiah Whitehead from Brooklyn who is most likely choosing between Louisville and Syracuse (most recruiting "experts" expect him to pick Syracuse) and he has said Russ has contacted him telling him about Louisville. Also, 5* JaQuan Lyle from Evansville, Indiana received an in home visit from CRP soon after the championship and all 7 crystal ball predictions on 247sports by experts think he will choose Louisville. Whitehead is expected to decide in the fall and Lyle is expected to decide in the spring.

Another name is rising Florida star Brandone Francis who has strong ties to newly acquired assistant Mike Balado.
