Ohio State football recruiting can be a wild ride full of twists and turns as recruits from all over the country maneuver their way to signing day. Lettermen Row is here to help you navigate the tumultuous roads by getting to the heart of the matter with the young football players themselves. Birminology shows who the young men being recruited by Ohio State truly are — by talking to them. Today’s guest: Ohio State 2020 commitment Gee Scott.
Eastside Catholic is a high school with less than 700 kids roaming its hallways, but there is no shortage of talent suiting up on Friday nights for the Crusaders. The Seattle-area program houses four of the country’s best football players, including three of the top five players in the state of Washington’s 2020 class.
One of those players is receiver Gee Scott, the country’s 13th-ranked receiver and the 67th-ranked overall prospect in the current recruiting cycle. Scott committed to Ohio State on Christmas Day, ending a recruitment that had seen him in the national spotlight for a little more than a year.
But it was a decision that happened just months after visiting the Buckeyes campus for the first — and to this point only — time.
The talented receiver could be the second-ever player from Washington to sign with Ohio State. But if he can help it, there will be plenty of others joining him this year.
The Buckeyes have offers out to both Sam Adams and D.J. Rogers, Scott’s teammates at Eastside Catholic, but also to Seattle Garfield’s Sav’ell Smalls and Ferndale’s Geirean Hatchett as Ryan Day looks to create a new pipeline to Ohio State from the Pacific Northwest.
Scott joined Lettermen Row’s Birminology this week to talk about those recruiting efforts, his relentless work ethic, why he picked the Buckeyes just three weeks after Urban Meyer’s retirement and more on this week’s episode.
