Ryan Day got a very nice present for his first Christmas as the Buckeyes’ next head coach. Santa brought him a big-time wide receiver.
Gee Scott, a 4-star prospect ranked as the No. 70 overall player in the 2020 class, announced that he was committing to Ohio State on Christmas Day.
Scott is a 6-foot-3, 211 lb. receiver. He is ranked as the 15th-best wide receiver in the 2020 class.
He plays for Eastside Catholic High School in Sammamish, Washington.
Scott picked the Buckeyes over offers from schools like Notre Dame, LSU, Florida State, Florida, USC, and Oregon.
Scott announced his commitment in a video in which he talked about what he wanted his legacy to be.
You can watch that at the bottom of this post.
He caught 48 passes for 654 yards and six touchdowns this fall, earning First-Team All-State honors in Washington.
Scott earned an offer from the Buckeyes while visiting Columbus for the Indiana game this year.
He made that trip with his high school teammate Sam Adams II, who also holds an OSU offer.
Scott will likely play the “X” position at Ohio State, the same spot manned by Austin Mack and Binjimen Victor this season.
OSU only took two wide receivers in 2019, Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams. It’s already looking like 2020 could be a big year for the Buckeyes at the position.
In addition to Scott, OSU already has a commitment from 4-star prospect Jaxon Smith-Njigba out of Rockwall, Texas.
They are considered the favorite to land 5-star wideout Rakim Jarrett from Washington, D.C., and are among the leaders for 5-star Pennsylvania prospect Julian Fleming. He just included OSU in his top group of schools, and looks like he might come down to a Penn State/Ohio State decision.
Michael Drennen II, a 4-star recruit from Dublin Coffman High School near Columbus, could end up as an “H” receiver in the 2020 class as well.
But with Smith-Njigba and Scott, the Buckeyes are already off to a great start.
