The "Elite '15" nickname stuck to football's 2015 recruits, but it might be more appropriate for that year's basketball class.

Daniel Giddens celebrated his and America's birthday by committing to the Buckeyes, and his addition to the 2015 class gives Ohio State a well-rounded group, filled with "elite" talent. In addition to the Marietta, Ga. center, Thad Matta's collection of rising high school seniors includes forward Mickey Mitchell, point guard A.J. Harris and guard Austin Grandstaff.

Giddens is considered a five-star talent by 247Sports, but every other major recruiting outlet lists him as a four-star recruit. The 6-foot-10-inch big man is a raw offensive talent, but there are flashes of potential. Due to his strength, he can consistently finish around the rim and through contact. This summer, he's also shown the ability to hit jump shots from the high-post.

Defensively is where his athleticism is most noticeable. He is agile at 235 pounds (ESPN lists him at 250), can run the floor as well as any big man in his class and is an explosive leaper. Again, because of his strong upper and lower body, he also tends to hold his position in the low-post.
