One of the top recruits for Ohio State in the class of 2019 was Alonzo Gaffney. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Gaffney picked the Buckeyes in April of his junior year, but his stay in Columbus will be a short one.
According to numerous sources close to the situation, Gaffney will not be returning to Ohio State for his sophomore season, and instead with the support of family and coaches, he will look at pursuing the professional options available to him.
Gaffney, who was the No. 63 ranked recruit in the 247Sports Top247, averaged 1.8 points and 1.4 rebounds per game with the Buckeyes while competing in 17 contests.
At 6-foot-9 and around 200 pounds, Gaffney possesses the ideal combination of size, length and athleticism, but he was never able to put all of it together and become a consistent producer throughout his high school or college career.
