The Buckeyes don’t often go into Washington state for recruits, but they could be making an exception for Gee Scott, Jr.
Scott (6-3 211) is a 2020 wide receiver from Sammamish, Washington and plays for Eastside Catholic High School. He will be announcing his commitment on December 25.
Scott visited the Buckeyes on his own dime back in October for the Indiana game, which tells you how interested he is in Ohio State.
In fact, the Buckeyes are the current Crystal Ball favorites with nine of the 10 predictions. Notre Dame has the other.
Ranked the No. 15 receiver in the nation and the No. 70 player overall per the 247Sports Composite, Scott holds offers from OSU, Notre Dame, LSU, Florida State, Florida, USC, Oregon, Arizona State, Arizona, UCLA, and Eastern Washington.
Scott was a First-Team All-State selection this past season, catching 48 passes for 654 yards and six touchdowns.
A taller receiver, he isn’t just a chain mover, as evidenced by the two plays below.

Ohio State currently has five commitments in the 2020 class, including a wide receiver in 4-star prospect Jaxon Smith-Njigba out of Rockwall, Texas.
Smith-Njigba committed last month.
The Buckeyes are also in on a number of other top receivers in the 2020 class.
Five-star Pennsylvania receiver Julian Fleming (6-2 205) is the No. 5 player in the nation and No. 1 receiver overall. He visited Ohio State twice in November alone. Penn State is the Crystal Ball favorite, but it will be interesting to see how Ryan Day and Brian Hartline do in this race.
Rakim Jarrett (6-0 182) is a 5-star receiver out of Washington DC who appears to be favoring the Buckeyes. He is the No. 4 receiver and No. 27 player overall per the 247Sports Composite.
Ohio State has also extended an offer to in-state all-purpose back Michael Drennen II out of Dublin Coffman. Drennen would likely project to H-back for the Buckeyes should he choose to commit.
