Massillon (OH) Washington ATH Gareon Conley is one top prospects in the state of Ohio for the class of 2013. Conley was a Michigan commit for about nine months, but de-committed back in December, a couple of weeks after Ohio State offered him a scholarship. Conley took a visit to Columbus from December 5th-7th and committed to the Bucks on the visit. I caught up with Conley to talk about the feeling of officially becoming a Buckeye and more:

  • Signing: "It felt really good to officially get the process over with. It's an honor to play for Ohio State, Coach Meyer, and the fan base. It's truly an honor."
  • Why he chose OSU: "I feel more comfortable as a Buckeye. I know I'll always have people there for me and I'm an Ohio boy."
  • Other Signees: "I probably talk to Darron Lee the most. It's a really good class, I can't wait to play with them."
  • Meyer: "We have a really good relationship. He's a great coach and I'm excited to play for him."
  • Devin Smith (Cousin): "We have a very good relationship. We went to school together and he's one of the main reasons I decided to play football."
  • Favorite recruiting memory: "My officially visit to Ohio State when I committed. It felt like home."
  • College position: CB or WR (most likely CB)
  • Interested in studying business
  • Message for Buckeye Nation: "I can't wait to get to Columbus and play football."

Glad he flipped. Yet another speedy athlete to wear the S & G.

I love that this kid knows where he is going and why.
I grew up a son of a TOSU professor.  I thought about other schools, but in the end there was only one school.  You can't escape the tradition.

Lockdown Corner: a dangerous part of town where Big-ten WRs don't dare tread.

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

Is Devin Smith related to everyone? lol

Haha.  When we signed Corey Smith I was excited because that could give us a chance to have a formation with trips where all of the are cousins.  Of course Conley would have to play WR for that, but I still have my fingers crossed.
