Ohio State basketball offers instate 2026 small forward

Over the last two recruiting classes, Ohio State basketball has signed 3 out of 9 players from their home state. If the offers going out to 2026 prospects are any indication, it seems like head coach Chris Holtmann is trying to create a fence around the states top prospects.

Recently point guard Marcus Johnson was offered a scholarship and now another Ohioan from his class has been, small forward T.J. Crumble.

At 6-foot, 8-inches, and 195 pounds, Crumble brings an element of size that the Buckeye roster would love to have. Although he isn’t ranked at the moment, not many 2026 prospects are, he is still viewed as one of the best players in the country.

These two offers are very big, especially considering how far out Crumble and Johnson are. The two know each other as well, as they are shown here working out together. Smart move by Holtmann offering both of them.
