Since it’s the offseason, the Ohio State basketball coaching staff is working hard on the recruiting trail. Today, the Buckeyes offered (unofficially) a kid who is not only drawing comparisons to LeBron James, but also attends his alma mater: St. Vincent – St. Mary’s in Akron, Ohio. The player is freshman phenom V.J. King.

King is already listed at 6-foot-6 and played small forward this past season. He’s also already being listed as a top ten recruit for the class of 2016. Although he is only a freshman and things can certainly change, this looks like it would be a huge get for Ohio State and its basketball team.
Here are some video highlights of King tearing it up in his freshman year.
