JUN 24, 2014 11:29p ET
Russell, a five-star recruit and the No. 2 shooting guard in the country according to Scout.com, did not enroll with the rest of the incoming freshman last week because the NCAA Eligibility Center had not cleared his transcript.
Tuesday the program Twitter page posted an announcement, "Great to have our newest Buckeyes all enrolled and on campus now!"
A Louisville, Ky., native who played at national powerhouse Montverde (Fla.) Academy last season, Russell earned McDonald's All-American status as a senior and also was selected for the Jordan Brand Classic all-star game.
Joining Russell in a recruiting class ranked 10th nationally are five-star forward Keita Bates-Diop of Normal (Ill.) University High, four-star forward Jae'Sean Tate of Pickerington (Ohio) Central and three-star center Dave Bell of Garfield Heights, Ohio.
