It was announced today that the Buckeye basketball team will get their first and possibly only recruit for the 2012 class, as Findlay Prep HS (Nev.) guard Amedeo Della Valle announced that he will be a Buckeye next season. Della Valle is a 6’5″, 185-pound guard with point guard experience at the high school level. Known as a sharpshooter, ADV also displays a strong handle and a quick first move to the basket. He is a 3-star prospect ranked as the 29th best shooting guard by Scout and 43rd by ESPN. Della Valle had offers from Texas A&M, Arizona, Michigan, and Gonzaga as well as the Buckeyes. He will be the team’s 10th scholarship player for next season, helping to alleviate the burden of losing guard Jordan Sibert and forward J.D. Weatherspoon to transfers. With any luck, the Italian-born guard who impressed at the Under-18 European Championships (15.1 ppg, 50% 3PT in 7 games) can provide some outside shooting to a team that struggled in that department last season.
