    Louisiana senior transfer guard Cedric Russell has committed to Ohio State, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported Friday.

    Russell, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound point guard out of Alexandria, LA, chose Ohio State over Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Marquette and St. John’s.

    During the 2020-21 season, Russell averaged 17.2 points on 41.9 percent shooting, while adding 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.

    Russell appeared in all 26 games for the Ragin’ Cajuns, making 25 starts and averaging 33.6 minutes per game.

    Ohio State currently has 13 players on scholarship for next season, with two open roster spots after the NCAA’s decision to grant all players an extra year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Buckeyes are expected to bring in transfers Jamari Wheeler (Penn State) and Jimmy Sotos (Bucknell), with returnees Meechie Johnson Jr., and Justin Ahrens.

    Ohio State also has the nation’s No. 48 ranked recruiting class in 2021 with incoming recruits Malaki Branham and Kalen Etzler.
