Malaki Branham announced his commitment to Ohio State on Wednesday.

Branham, a top 30 prospect in ESPN's 2021 class, chose Ohio State over Alabama, Baylor, Louisville, Missouri, Marquette and Xavier.

"They've shown me how I can flourish in their system with my versatility at the guard position. They also believe in my abilities at the highest level," said Branham.

Branham is Ohio State's third top-100 prospect in their 2021 class.
