After committing to Ohio State back on April 1, 2012, St. Louis (MO) John Burroughs RB Ezekiel Elliott gave Buckeye fans a scare a few weeks back when he took an official visit to Missouri.

Both of Elliott's parents attended Mizzou and he grew up around the school, so if that wasn't enough reason for alarm, the four-star prospect decided to stir up some more drama by keeping his final decision secret until a press conference at his school today.

The drama ended moments ago as Elliott reaffirmed his pledge to Urban Meyer, signing and faxing in his national letter of intent to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center moments ago. Elliott now gives the Buckeyes 24 letters signed today and 82 total scholarship players on the roster, the limit for OSU in 2013 per NCAA ruling.

Buckeye fans can now rest easy, as Elliott if officially part of the Ohio State family and will look to make instant impact at running back next season.
