After sorting through offers from everyone from Kansas to UConn, Scotty Middleton has decided to become a Buckeye.
Scotty made his choice official on Sunday, choosing Ohio State over all others, a decision he said came down to the connection he felt with the staff led by Head Coach Chris Holtmann, he told 247Sports.
“Coach Holtmann and (assistant coach Jake) Diebler always did a good job of consistently staying in contact with me through my good and my bad times. I think them always being consistent and always giving me advice when I was down or when I was up just separated them from every other school.”

2023 5⭐️ Scotty Middleton tells me he has committed to Ohio State.
A HUGE add for the Buckeyes, as they get one of the best two-way players in the '23 class after getting Devin Royal earlier this week.
A great perimeter defender and solid three level scorer. #18 in the ESPN100. pic.twitter.com/1w2E9qskiO
