Five-star Center David McCormack Names OSU in Final Six Schools



Class of 2018 center David McCormack has trimmed his top schools to six, naming OSU, Kansas, Duke, NC State, Xavier and UCLA in his final list.

McCormack, a Norfolk, Virginia native, notably cut his in-state school of Virginia from consideration — a team he had previously been linked to before surges from OSU and Duke this summer.

According to 247Sports, McCormack is a five-star, top 50 talent nationally, and a four-star prospect according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, which compiles rankings from all the recruiting services into one.

The 6-foot-10 big man plays for the famous Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. On the AAU circuit, he’s a key cog for Team Loaded Virginia where he plays alongside other OSU targets Armando Bacot and Oscar Tshweibe.

OSU has 36 percent of the 247Sports crystal ball predictions, most of which came shortly after Mike Boynton hired David Kontaxis — a plugged-in coach with deep ties to the AAU circuit — to his coaching staff this summer.

McCormack made an unofficial visit to Kansas over the weekend and will take his first official visit of an allowed five this weekend to NC State, a team that has recently jumped into the mix to land his services.

McCormack has long held that he would make his final college decision at some point this fall, and with his official visits getting underway starting on Saturday, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him pull the trigger in September or early October.

OSU has several irons in the fire regarding big-name Class of 2018 prospects, however the coaching staff has yet to land a commitment. Landing a player of McCormack’s talent and ability would no doubt kick the class off with a bang, but potentially create a snowball effect that impacts other top targets for Mike Boynton and his staff as they aim to make a splash on the recruiting trail before the season gets underway.
