Last month, the Ohio State Buckeyes put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Chris Holtmann and his staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Owen Freeman.
After a great visit with Coach Holtmann, Coach Diebler, and the coaching staff I am blessed to announce that I have received an offer from The Ohio State University to play college basketball! #gobuckeyes @ChrisHoltmann @JakeDiebler pic.twitter.com/DKcPIKgmWE— Owen Freeman (@_OwenFreeman) June 9, 2021
Freeman comes out of Bradley, Illinois and is largely unrated by the national scouting services. However, he is attracting some serious midwestern attention and is listed at 6-foot-9 and 220 pounds by 247Sports. Along with Ohio State, he also has offers from Butler, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Marquette, Michigan State, Purdue, and Wisconsin among others.
Ohio State currently has no commitments in the program’s 2023 recruiting class, though that isn’t surprising given the timeline of most 2023 recruits and some of the changes in the transfer market. But fans will hope the Buckeyes can get things started with a commitment from Freeman. However, we will have to wait and see as it’s still very much in the air. He currently has no Crystal Ball predictions on 247Sports.
