Garfield Heights’ Alonzo Gaffney commits to Ohio State

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OHIO– Five-star recruit Alonzo Gaffney committed to The Ohio State University on Tuesday morning. The Garfield Heights forward announced his decision on Twitter.

Gaffney is the No. 1 recruit in the state and the No. 18 player in the country, per When Chris Holtmann took over at OSU last year, they made Gaffney their biggest priority in the 2019 class, per ESPN.

For the Bulldogs this past season, Gaffney averaged 18.2 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks. He was named to the All-Ohio first team as well. Garfield Heights ended the year with an 18-6 record and lost to Shaker Heights in the district finals.
