Ohio State basketball lands commitment from LeBron James' nephew, Class of '21 4-star G Meechie Johnson

It’s early, but Ohio State is already making noise for the basketball Class of 2021.
As reported by 247Sports, the Buckeyes received their second commit for 2021 in the form of four-star combo guard Meechie Johnson Jr. A 5-foot-11, 160-pound combo guard from Garfield Heights High School (Cleveland, Ohio), Johnson picked Ohio State before he received formal offers from the likes of Big Ten competitors Indiana, Michigan State and Wisconsin, among other programs that expressed interest.
Johnson has long been tracked as a top prospect both because of his natural talent and his connection to the NBA’s most famous star: He is Lakers star LeBron James’ nephew.
