    Nojel Eastern (6'7 SG / Meanstreets / 2017):

    Per Game Stats: 10.7 points, 52.2% FG, 4.3 rebounds, 0.7 assists
    Weekend High: 16 points vs. Georgia Stars

    A recently offered prospect that Ohio State is turning up the pressure on, Eastern had a solid weekend for Meanstreets, a top program based out of Chicago. Eastern is a lengthy wing guard with a versatile skill set, the type of prospect that Thad Matta has consistently recruited over the years. Eastern has been a mainstay in the EYBL for the past two seasons, playing up a year ago, and being one of the league's top breakout performers. Visited by Matta on Wednesday, the Buckeyes are in hot pursuit for the four-star wing, who features offers from other Big Ten programs in Illinois, Michigan State and nearby Northwestern.

    Nojel Eastern (6'7 SG / Meanstreets / 2017):

    While Young and Johnson were stellar this past weekend, Eastern had a more than forgettable session, averaging just six points per game on 33 percent shooting. Going for a weekend-high of nine points vs. CIA Bounce on Saturday, Eastern continued a slump that has lingered on for awhile now, as the recent Buckeye offer hasn't scored more than 12 points in any game since Session 1 in early April.

    Nojel Eastern - 6'7 SG - Meanstreets - 2017

    Top Performance: 15 points, 6 rebounds in 75-73 win over All-Ohio Red

    Season Stats: 9.4 points (41.2 FG%, 72.6 FT%, 25.0 3PT%), 4.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists

    A player that Ohio State has been hard on for most of the spring, Eastern had a productive final weekend in the EYBL, leading Meanstreets to a final record of 9-7. While Eastern hardly takes all of the shots for his Meanstreets squad, he had a few impressive scoring performances to open the weekend, going for a session-high of 15 points in a tight win over Wesson and All-Ohio Red. The type of lengthy wing that Ohio State likes to recruit, Eastern features offers from Michigan State, Illinois, Xavier, Purdue, and UNLV, among others.

    Nojel Eastern - No. 74

    The lengthy Eastern cracks the top 75, coming in at No. 74. At 6-foot-6, Eastern is a big and versatile play-making wing, holding more than 15 other offers outside Ohio State, from schools such as Michigan State, UCLA and Marquette.
