Justin Ahrens, the 6-foot-5 small forward from Versailles (OH) High School, announced his commitment to Ohio State on Sunday via Twitter. Ahrens’ commitment comes just a couple days after his official visit to Ohio State (Sept. 22).

“I picked OSU cause I am determined to help this program get back to the top,” Ahrens told D1VISION on Sunday via text. “I want to be on the front end of this all. I also love the players and coaching staff. We get along really well. I love it there.”

According to 247Sports, Ahrens is ranked as the No. 170 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 6 player from the state of Ohio. He joins Luther Muhammad, Jaedon Ledee, and Duane Washington as the fourth commit in the Buckeyes 2018 class. All four players have committed in the last week.

Ahrens, who cut his list to three last month, took official visits to Michigan (Sept. 8) and Ohio State, before committing. He had originally planned to visit Xavier (Sept. 29) but that visit has been canceled. He also received a visit from Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann on September 14.

“I feel that I will fit in perfectly with the offense they run,” Ahrens told D1Vision on Sunday.

Playing with C2K Elite on the Under Armour Circuit this past summer, Ahrens averaged 13.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 13 games. C2K Elite finished with a 5-7 record.

“I like a lot about OSU,” Ahrens told D1VISION last month. “The coaches are awesome and I could play a lot as a freshman.”

This is the second time that Ahrens has committed to Ohio State. On August 27, 2016, Ahrens committed to the Buckeyes before decommitting less than a year later (June 6).
