4-star power forward to officially visit Ohio State soon

4-star power forward to officially visit Ohio State soon

The Ohio State Buckeyes Men’s Basketball program currently has the No. 16 ranked 2025 recruiting class on 247 Sports with the commitment of shooting guard Dorian Jones on July 1. The Buckeyes are now looking for a big man to add to this class.

A’mare Bynum is a 6’8″, 210-pound power forward from Omaha, Nebraska. The four-star prospect is the highest-ranked player in Nebraska and is even listed as the No. 15 center by 247 Sports. On3 has him listed as a power forward and No. 15 at that position.

Joe Tipton, national basketball reporter for On3, posted on X on Thursday that Bynum has official visits scheduled with five teams. The Buckeyes, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Iowa Hawkeyes, Colorado Buffaloes and LSU Tigers are all scheduled to visit soon.

At this point, the Buckeyes are the only one of those five schools with a 2025 commitment. Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado and LSU will all likely compete fiercely with Ohio State for Bynum.

Last season as a junior in high school, Bynum averaged 21.1 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists and 2.3 blocks per game. He will spend his final season at Link Academy in Missouri after transferring from Bryan High School in Omaha. He spent his first three years at Bryan.

Last week, head coach Jake Diebler extended offers to prospects in the classes of 2026 and 2028. While Bynum reportedly does not have an offer from the Buckeyes at this time, he could certainly leave his upcoming visit with an offer from Ohio State.
