Ohio State Lands Four-Star Guard Torrence Watson

Torrence Watson Ohio State

Torrence Watson, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Whitfield (MO) School, announced his commitment to Ohio State on Monday via Twitter. Watson chose the Buckeyes over Michigan, Creighton, Marquette, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Butler, Kansas State, and Saint Louis.

“This has been the hardest decision of my life,” said Watson in a statement released on Twitter. “I’ve built so many great relationships with great coaches and programs but I know I can’t choose everyone. Next fall, I will be attending the Ohio State University.”

According to 247Sports, Watson is ranked as the No. 100 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 3 player from the state of Missouri. He is the first commit in Ohio State’s 2018 recruiting class. He received an offer from the Buckeyes last month (June 15).

Playing with Ramey Jets United on the adidas Gauntlett this summer, Watson has averaged 13.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game, in seven games. He has helped lead Ramey Jets United to a 6-2 record.

New Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann continues his success on the recruiting trail as of late after also landing a commitment from 2017 forward Kyle Young last month and Musa Jallow last week. Jallow will reclassify to the Class of 2017.

With the live period coming up later this week, Holtmann and his staff will hit the road Wednesday to start off the July evaluation periods. Watson and Ramey Jets United will play on Thursday in the adidas Gauntlett finale championship.
