SIGNED: Gee Scott Is Officially A Buckeye

Ohio State recruiting Gee Scott

Gee Scott, Jr., a wide receiver from Sammamish, Washington, is now officially a Buckeye.

Scott sent in his signed Letter of Intent to join Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class.

He’s a top-100 overall player in the nation and part of an absolutely ludicrous haul for the Buckeyes at the wide receiver position.

He will also be the first scholarship player at Ohio State from the state of Washington since Kevin Griffin in 1998.

Here’s a look at what Scott brings to Ohio State.

Ranking: He is a 4-star prospect, considered the No. 12 wide receiver and 2nd-best player in the state of Washington this year.

Other Offers: He picked the Buckeyes over offers from schools like Oregon, Washington, Notre Dame, LSU, and Florida.

Positional Projection: Scott will obviously be a wide receiver, and with a 6-foot-2, 207 lb frame, will likely fit in at one of the outside receiver positions.

Commitment: He committed to the Buckeyes almost exactly a year ago, in December 2018.

Enrolling: Scott will enroll at Ohio State in January and then go through 2020 spring practice.

Projected Impact: Scott will get a head start on his college career by going through spring ball. That helped Garrett Wilson make an almost immediate impact on the 2019 Buckeyes.

There is obviously plenty of competition at those outside receiver spots, even with Austin Mack and Binjimen Victor leaving after this season.

However, given the way the Buckeyes tend to rotate at least six receivers through most games, there is definitely an opportunity for Scott to earn his way onto the field.

He can certainly become an impact player on special teams, much as Wilson and Jameson Williams did this year, and Chris Olave did in 2018.

    1- does one ‘get’ a ‘head start’? Or, does the responsible, accountable person… exercise his choices for choosing to commit to a contract [scholarship] and college [tOSU?

    … and from that moment… by his daily conduct… demonstrate he is embarking on that journey, the next team marker of which is “the black stripe” of ‘belonging’? NB: it is the removal of that stripe, not the special addition of it, that removes a peer condition to recognize an ‘achievement’ by your peers and coaches… that your helmet, becomes ‘the same’ as those in the brotherhood. NB ‘the difference’ between the adding by subtracting of the black stripe… and the Buckeye leaf that does not ID the actual achievement, but that you achieved something that is an inherent part of the whole team… regardless of whether the leaf was for an individual or a part of or the team.

    Is this accurate? Is it significant? Does this match w/Coach Day’s standards?

    1. should i ask if the black strip removal is like…

      “an outward public sign of commitment to an inner faith”?

      should i guess that that Buckeye helmet is a symbol of the source and kind of protection… as well as addresses the styles and changing degrees of physical protection?
