Ohio State recruiting: State Secrets, 5/28 - Joe Burrow commits, Torrance Gibson losing interest? (LGHL)

Is Ohio State slipping in the recruitment of Torrance Gibson after landing a commitment from class of 2015 quarterback Joe Burrow?

'Nothing changes': Four-star prospect Torrance Gibson says Ohio State plans to take two QBs: Buckeyes recruiting (Plain Dealer)

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Immediately after the news that Ohio State earned a commitment from three-star quarterback Joe Burrow on Tuesday, the thought process quickly jumped to another quarterback.

If taking another QB didn't affect his recruitment, why did he call into 24/7?  His recruitment is an enigma.  Reportedly, Waller is higher on the Bucks that most thought.  I say we offer him, maybe he commits and we can put this QB stuff to bed.

Agreed, already over "The Gibson Saga". Could care less whether we're #1 or #110 on his list now. Know many think he will be Oregons' to lose, but I'd make the offer just the same. Taking two Qbs in this class, probably regardless of what he does.

Down vote me all that you want but I think that Gibson is a Prima Donna.

I'm not a fan of baseless speculation, but here's my baseless speculation:

Travis Waller said that he's #1 on the staff's board at QB. Torrence Gibson may have taken offense to that. I would, too, if I was being recruited by a school that said I was #1 on their board, then the staff turned around and told another prospect that they were #1.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Urban tells this to all the kids, He's been saying that for the last 8 years I've been following recruiting..I think there's a good chance we could have a grey box soon with Waller if he makes it to campus next month.

The thing I never understood is why Gibson hasn't even made a visit to Ohio State.  He made it all the way out to Oklahoma, but didn't want to go out of his way any further to visit Columbus.  It seems more and more to me like he just wants the attention from a big name football program, coach, and fan base.  Don't get me wrong, Gibson is a tremendous athlete and I'd love to see him in scarlet and grey, but I don't think he has any real intentions of even visiting Columbus.  Of course he'll announce plans for a visit 10 minutes after I post this and I'll have to eat me words.

The thing I never understood is why Gibson hasn't even made a visit to Ohio State. 

Because he lives in Miami, Columbus is 20 hours away, and it's not near any other schools that he would want to check out if he was taking a multi-day road trip? It's tough to plan a trip like that during the school year.

And sure, he visited Oklahoma as a part of his spring break recruiting road trip. But that was because it wasn't too far out of the way, since he was seeing like eight other schools in the region anyways.
