COLUMBUS, Ohio – Senior Colin White of Ottawa-Glandorf High School was named 2024 Ohio Mr. Basketball on Wednesday by the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association.

White has helped lead the Titans to the OHSAA state tournament all four years of his high school career. They will face Canal Winchester Harvest Prep at 5:15 p.m. Friday in a Division III state semifinal. He was a first-team All-Ohio selection as a sophomore and junior, with this season’s honors being announced next week.

Cleveland Heights Lutheran East senior Jesse McCulloch was the runner-up and Garfield Heights sophomore Marcus Johnson finished third. Other finalists included Malvern senior J’Allen Barrino, Shelby senior Alex Bruskotter, Westerville South junior Kruz McClure, Cincinnati Winton Woods senior Tyler McKinley, Louisville senior Hayden Nigro, and Camden Preble Shawnee senior Mason Shrout.
