The No. 2 hooper from the state of Ohio in the Class of 2023 has whittled his list to 9.

Devin Royal, a 4-star small forward from Pickerington, Ohio, has a high chance of ending up at a B1G program, including his home state school Ohio State alongside Michigan State, Penn State and Michigan.

Rounding out Royal’s top 9 are Alabama, Clemson, Marquette, Ole Miss and Miami. Quite the group of teams from an outside perspective. The 6-foot-6 Royal held 23 D1 scholarship offers before whittling it down Monday afternoon.

And someone is getting a serious talent in Royal, who is rated as the No. 76 prospect in the 2023 cycle and the No. 14 Small Forward.

Royal officially visited Michigan State on June 17.
