    Without a doubt...three borderline 5 stars and a top 100 very talented PG. Plus there is real balance in this class and all needs were filled, which is often overlooked in recruiting. Rivals has us at #9.

    Ohio State basketball: The lost class of 2015
    What happened to the nation’s No. 5 recruiting class?


    Ohio State basketball hasn't exactly been a powerhouse program over the last five years. As is the case when it comes to college athletics, the measure of a teams success can usually be traced back to recruiting. While a highly regarded recruiting class doesn't necessarily promise results on the court, it certainly increases the chances of having a productive year.

    The Buckeyes have had a tough time in recent years recruiting with the big boys, failing to haul in a top 10 class in each of the previous five cycles. Chris Holtmann’s latest group was certainly a step in the right direction, bringing in three top-50 guys to put together a class that ranked No. 14 nationally. Ohio State seems to be headed down the right path back to relevance, but as previously mentioned, recruiting isn’t always the answer.

    This is no better exemplified than by the class of 2015. The most recent Buckeye class to rank in the top 10, Thad Matta was able to secure the No. 5 class in the country in one of his final years at the helm of Ohio State basketball. The group consisted of five players: all of them four-star recruits, with four of the five ranking in the top 100. Things were looking bright in Columbus heading into the season with seven-straight NCAA Tournament appearances and a roster loaded with talent — at least on paper.

    Instead, the Buckeyes would finish that 2015-16 season with a 21-14 record, never even so much as sniffing the AP Top 25 and missing the tourney for the first time since the 2007-08 season. By the following season, all but one of those 2015 recruits were off the team, and by 2017 all five of them were no longer at Ohio State.

    Just what happened to one of the highest-rated recruiting classes at Ohio State in the last decade? Where are those five players now? These are their stories. *DUN DUN*

    Latest updates on Jaquan Lyle, Daniel Giddens, Austin Grandstaff. A.J. Harris, and Mickey Mitchell:

    Just sayin': If you support the adage "once a Buckeye always a Buckeye" you might want to read what they doing now. Surprisingly all are still on a college team for the 2019/2020 season.
