New Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann secured a solid commitment on Monday as former Butler pledge Kyle Young will follow him to the Big Ten.

Regarded as a four-star prospect in the Class of 2017, the 6-foot-7 Young gives the Buckeyes a floor-spacing forward who also isn’t afraid to compete against bigger players on the interior. Young will mix it up on the glass and also has a solid motor despite being a bit undersized.

With Ohio State having so many scholarships to fill in the Class of 2018, getting Young in the fold right now will help ease the burden of having such a big class down the road.
