Darius Bazley, a 4-star recruit from Cincinnati, is no longer committed to Ohio State. Bazley said while he’s de-committing, he is still considering the Buckeyes. “I would like to thank the entire Ohio State Men’s Basketball staff for believing in my ability to represent the university as a student athlete, Bazley wrote in a note shared on Twitter. “After speaking with my family, I have decided to de-commit and open up my recruitment. This decision has not been easy because my family and I have built a relationship with the staff at Ohio State but I would like to give myself the opportunity to explore other universities. I want to be sure to choose the school that fits me best both academically and athletically. Ohio State is still one of the schools that I will be considering. Bazley, a 6-foot-7, 185 pound forward, is part of the 2018 recruiting class. According to 247 Sports’ composite rankings, Bazley is No. 1 for Ohio. He’s also No. 15 nationally as a small forward and No. 53 for all prospects.
