Ohio State has landed a commitment from Kentucky transfer Aaron Bradshaw, a five-star freshman a year ago.

The 7-1, 225-pound Bradshaw committed to the Buckeyes while on an official visit during the weekend.

Listed as a center, Bradshaw is viewed as a player who can and will play alongside returning starter Felix Okpara and also spend time at the center position. ESPN ranks him as the No. 36 transfer and CBS Sports ranks him at No. 45.

“The 7-footer can step out and hit 3-pointers and is more mobile as a perimeter defender than most college centers,” CBS’ David Cobb wrote.

Bradshaw averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in his lone season with the Wildcats. He missed the start of the season with a foot injury but was a five-star prospect, the No. 1 center and the No. 5 overall prospect in the 2023 class according to 247Sports.com.

Bradshaw is the highest-rated player to play for Ohio State since Jared Sullinger was the No. 3 national recruit in the 2010 class. He announced his commitment with a post to his personal Instagram page featuring a graphic that featured the logo for THE Foundation, Ohio State’s primary collective that works with the men’s basketball program, and the caption, “Buckeye Nation, I’m all in.”

He is the second player to transfer into Ohio State since the season’s end, joining Meechie Johnson from South Carolina. ESPN ranks Johnson as the No. 37 transfer. The Buckeyes have two available roster spots remaining.
