George Washington III Decommits From Ohio State

Dayton Chaminade Julienne four-star shooting guard George Washington III, the first member of Ohio State’s 2023 class, has decommitted from his pledge to the Buckeyes.

Washington, who stands at 6-foot-2, had initially committed to Ohio State on Nov. 3, 2021, kicking off Chris Holtmann’s 2023 recruiting class. Prior to committing to Ohio State, Washington had received offers from Auburn, Liberty, Louisville and Tennessee.

Washington’s decommitment comes on the heels of an official visit to Ohio State on Sept. 3 for the OSU-Notre Dame football game. He visited the university alongside the rest of the 2023 class and Buckeye targets Minneapolis Totino-Grace four-star combo guard Taison Chatman and Los Angeles Sierra Canyon four-star combo guard Bronny James.

The Buckeyes now likely turn their attention to garnering a commitment from either Chatman or James. Ohio State’s 2023 class currently includes Pickerington (Ohio) Central four-star small forward Devin Royal, Wichita (Kan.) four-star small-forward Scotty Middleton and St. Marys (Ohio) Memorial three-star center Austin Parks. The Buckeyes now hold the No. 9 class in 2023, according to 247Sports, down from the fifth-best ranking before Washington’s decommitment.
