The Ohio State women’s basketball program landed one of the nation’s top-rated prospects on Friday afternoon when Bronx (N.Y.) Monsignor Scanlan five-star point guard Kateri Poole pledged her services to head coach Kevin McGuff.

The 5-8 Poole is considered the seventh-best point guard and No. 16 overall prospect in the class of 2020, as she led the Crusaders to the state championship game and was named second-team all-state by the New York State Sportswriters Association and USA Today last season.
Poole becomes the third member of Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class, joining Westerville (Ohio) South three-star teammates Gabby Hutcherson (forward) and Anyssa Jones (guard).
