Ohio State earned its first commitment from the 2024 class on Sunday, landing the services of Las Vegas Bishop Gorman four-star point guard John Mobley Jr. (6-0, 150).
Mobley ranks as the No. 7 point guard and No. 43 overall player in the class, according to 247Sports’ composite score. He chose the Buckeyes over LSU, Xavier, USC, Arizona State and Creighton, which he took an official visit to on Sept. 6.
Mobley took an official visit to Ohio State’s campus on Oct. 2, in which took photos in the Buckeyes’ uniforms and took in the OSU-Rutgers game.
Mobley is primarily known for his shooting ability and offensive prowess. He pointed to head coach Chris Holtmann’s ability to develop NBA-caliber players as one of his primary draws to Columbus.
“The relationship with (head coach Chris Holtmann) and the coach’s experience with NBA players,” Mobley told 247Sports prior to his commitment to Ohio State. “My goal is to come in and for them to teach me everything to get me to the next level and I feel like I can do really good at that.”
With the addition of Mobley, Ohio State’s 2024 class jumped into the 247Sports rankings, slotting in at No. 3 in the nation.
