Wide receiver Gee Scott is a 6-foot-3, 210-pound 4-star prospect from Seattle-area powerhouse Eastside Catholic High School where he won a state championship as a junior.
Scott, the country’s 15th-ranked receiver in the Class of 2020, committed to Ohio State over Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, LSU and more.
Scott is a big, physical receiver with above-average ball skills. An emotional and vocal leader, Scott has all the tools to be a major contributor for the Buckeyes early in his career.
He uses his frame very well to get open and catches the ball with his hands far better than most of his peers.
If there’s one area that Scott will need to improve his game, it’s going to be his top end speed. If I was going to make an Ohio State-related comparis0n, let’s compare Gee Scott to a younger version of Michael Thomas.
There will be a number of spots open for young players to grab playing time in 2020 and Gee Scott’s overall game makes him an ideal candidate to grab some of that.
Ohio State’s receivers room has turned into one of the country’s elite units and for any player to succeed in it, they’ve got to show a team-first attitude and contribute on special teams.
That’s how Chris Olave emerged in 2018 and how Gee Scott will need to earn his stripes in 2020.
Ohio State is off to a great start in the recruiting class of 2020 and the addition of Gee Scott gives the Buckeyes another very talented receiver to count on in the future.
Scott is big, he’s got great hands and has barely begun to scrape the limits of his potential. What makes Scott a truly special prospect is that he “wants to be great” and that isn’t something every kid in the country is concerned about these days.
A state title winner at powerhouse Eastside Catholic outside of Seattle, Scott is one member of an incredibly talented team and his commitment could help the Buckeyes open up the Pacific Northwest in a way that they’ve not been able to before.
Ohio State is chasing a number of major talents from the Washington area including 4-star running back Sam Adams, the country’s fourth-ranked tight end in D.J. Rogers, 4-star cornerback Ayden Hector and 2021 star J.T. Tuimoloau who is an early choice as the country’s top overall prospect in that class. The Buckeyes are also very much in the mix for 2020 4-star offensive guard Geirean Hatchett from Ferndale (Wash.) and 5-star linebacker Sav’ell Smalls from Seattle Garfield High School. Saguaro (Scottsdale, Ariz.) 5-star cornerback Kelee Ringo is also from the Seattle area as well and remains closely linked to Scott and others from that area.
Scott’s commitment could be a gift that keeps giving for Ryan Day and Ohio State.
