A few months ago the biggest weakness on Ohio State's basketball roster was in the paint.

Now the Buckeyes have a surplus at big man after earning a verbal commitment from four-star center Daniel Giddens of Marietta (Ga.) Wheeler.

Rated by Rivals.com the No. 37 player in the 2015 class, Giddens chose the Buckeyes over Florida, Georgia, Arizona, Indiana and Kansas.

Giddens is also ranked as the No. 55 player in the Class of 2015 by ESPN.com, the No. 64 overall player by Scout.com and the No. 20 prospect by 247sports.com.
