ST. PAUL -- Totino-Grace guard Taison Chatman, the top-ranked boys’ basketball player in Minnesota, committed to Ohio State on Tuesday night.

Chatman, a 6-foot-4 guard in the 2023 class, put the Gophers in his top five this summer, along with Kansas, Xavier and Virginia.

Chatman, of Minneapolis, led Totino-Grace to a Class 3A state championship in March.

The Gophers have missed out on the No. 1-rated player in the state in the first two years under new coach Ben Johnson, with Cretin-Derham Hall’s Tre Holloman off to Michigan State last year.

The Gophers, who added other Minnesotans in the 2022 class, are in the mix for the 2023 No. 2 ranked forward Nolan Winter of Lakeville North. The reported two finalists are Minnesota and Wisconsin. He is the son of former Gophers center Trevor Winter.
