Thad Matta has landed his second commitment from a recruit for his 2013 recruiting class. 

Per 247sports.com, Baltimore native Kameron Williams selected Ohio State over other schools that he was interested in, including Miami, Dayton and Marquette.

Williams is a 6'2" shooting guard from Mount Saint Joseph High School who plays for the Baltimore Elite AAU team. He is considered a 4-star prospect and is listed as the 20th best shooting guard in the class of 2013 by Scout.com

Matta has already received a commitment from Marc Loving, who is a 4-star, 6'7" power forward from Toledo. Therefore, by picking up guard Williams, the scarlet and gray's recruiting class instantly has a bit of versatility to it. 

It has to be encouraging for Buckeye fans to see two highly regarded recruits already on board for Ohio State, considering the 2012 class only had one recruit. Furthermore, while that recruit, Amedeo Della Valle, should help the Buckeyes from behind the three-point line, he is not exactly the type of blue chip prospect that fans in Columbus have become accustomed to.

As for Williams, he was reportedly visiting Ohio State this past weekend (via the Columbus Dispatch basketball writer's twitter page) and found himself at the football game versus California. He must have liked what he saw, although it probably wasn't the tackling display from the Buckeye defense.

Williams is a deadly three-point shooter and should help make up for some of the long range shots that may depart for the NBA with Deshaun Thomas after this season.
