The Ohio State Buckeyes have landed 2022 Top-30 recruit Bruce Thornton on Thanksgiving Day. He is also ranked as a top ten point guard in the 2022 recruiting class. He committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes over the Indiana Hoosiers, the Purdue Boilermakers, the Georgia Bulldogs, and the Alabama Crimson Tide. This is a great addition for Ohio State Head Coach Chris Holtmann who has been building solid recruiting classes for the Buckeyes.
With the addition of Bruce Thornton, Ohio State now has the No. 1 recruiting class in 2022 in both basketball and football. Things are started off well for the Buckeyes in that regard

The 2022 recruiting class is in the early stages of committing, but Ohio State has worked hard to land the guys they wanted in the class. Thornton will be joining shooting guard Roddy Gayle Jr. who is ranked in the Top-80 of the class. Ohio State also has the commitment of shooting guard Bowen Hardman, who is ranked in the Top-150 in the class. The Buckeyes have put an emphasis on guard pay in the 2022 recruiting class. This is a step up from the Buckeye’s 42nd ranked 2021 recruiting class.
Bruce Thornton is listed at 6’2″ and 195 pounds with some time to further fill out his frame. College basketball often relies on good point guard play and Thornton could end up running the offense for Chris Holtmann. The great thing about adding a talented guy like him is he doesn’t project as a “one and done” prospect. Chris Holtmann should have a talented point guard for two or three years when he gets to campus. The Buckeyes have added a talented Top-30 recruit that should be a least a two-year prospect. Chris Holtmann has the Ohio State Buckeyes in good shape for future Big Ten seasons.
