One of the nation’s elite combo guard prospects, Jalen Warley, included Ohio State in his top 10 schools.

The West Chester (Pa.) Westtown School standout also listed Big Ten programs Maryland and Michigan, as well as Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Memphis, Miami (Fla.), Oregon and Virginia.

Warley, who hails from Norristown, Pa., is the nation’s No. 3 combo guard and No. 27 overall recruit for 2021. He is also the second-ranked player in Pennsylvania behind teammate Franck Kepnang, although 247Sports’ ranks him first.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard recently picked up his Ohio State offer on May 29 during a virtual meeting with the Buckeyes’ staff, per Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann and his staff already have the commitments of two of the top prospects in Ohio in Convoy Crestview three-star forward Kalen Etzler and Willoughby Andrews Osborne Academy four-star guard Meechie Johnson Jr. for 2021.

For the class of 2022, the Buckeyes have secured a commitment from Cincinnati Princeton shooting guard Bowen Hardman.
