Italian guard Amedeo Della Valle signs letter of intent to play for Ohio State


COLUMBUS — Ohio State coach Thad Matta has confirmed he has signed 6-foot-4 shooting guard Amedeo Della Valle to a letter of intent.

The signing had been expected ever since Della Valle, who played high school ball at powerhouse Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., visited campus recently and then verbally committed to the Buckeyes.

Della Valle, a native of Alba, Italy, will begin classes on June 18 and will have four years of eligibility beginning with the 2012-13 season.

He led Italy in scoring at 15.1 points a game in the 2011 U-18 European Championships.
