Maryland target Esa Ahmad of Shaker Heights, Ohio, has received an offer from in-state and in-conference powerhouse Ohio State, Bob Baptist of The Columbus Dispatch is reporting.
Ahmad was on campus for a visit but, as Baptist notes, it does not appear he has committed to the Buckeyes at the moment.
Ranked No. 98 overall in the country by Rivals.com, Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon recently met in person with Ahmad and he is considered a top target for the Terrapins from the Class of 2015.
Listed at 6-7, 225 pounds, Ahmad is a skilled forward and a strong presence in the paint. Maryland added size in its 2014 class, but has a need for forwards in 2015.
By the time Ahmad steps on campus, wherever that is, Maryland’s Evan Smotrycz will have graduated and two forwards currently on the roster, Jake Layman and Charles Mitchell, will be seniors.
