Jaedon LeDee verbally committed to play college basketball at Ohio State on Tuesday. Per Scout.com's Evan Daniels, LeDee said the following regarding his decision to join the Buckeyes: "I'm headed to Ohio State and I picked them because they have everything I wanted in a school. When I took my visit everyone was down to earth. My mom really enjoyed it. At first she wasn't fond of me going away, but after the visit she said that would be one of the places she would be comfortable with me going." LeDee is the 115th overall player and No. 31 small forward in the 2018 recruiting class, according to Scout. The Houston native is also the fifth-best small forward in the Midland region. LeDee chose Ohio State over a pair of other schools he visited in UCLA and Texas A&M. After his commitment, LeDee said he hopes to be an instant contributor at OSU, per Daniels: "I want to come in and have an immediate impact. The guys they have there are great guys and they can play. I want to come into what they are already doing and making them better, use my versatility and do whatever I need to do win." Anthony Davis famously played guard in high school before growing seven inches in one year and establishing himself as one of the best centers in the country. An unintended benefit of Davis' growth spurt was that he was a good ball-handler for a frontcourt player.
