Ari Wasserman just tweeted telling Ohio State fans to "watch Torrance play tomorrow. He has a surprise for us."

Just speculation but maybe a commitment!?

(I'm on my IPAD so I can't embed it. It would be great if somebody would embed that tweet in the comments)

Probably wearing a piece of OSU clothing/gear, or something of that nature.

Yeah, I was thinking when he scores a TD, he would hold up OSU gloves or something. Like when the hands cross over and form an "O".

That was my thought. But that does help recruiting to see big name player to show us love on a national level. 

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

Ohio State fans: Be sure to tune into Torrance Gibson's game tomorrow at 3 p.m. on ESPN. He has a surprise for you.

Ohio State fans > surprise for you ( not us )> Ari Wasserman not a fan?

I'm guessing Hat.  OSU block O hat.

I'm guessing a change in jersey number from #6 to #5, a Block O hat on the sidelines, an 'O-H' gesture after a 99 yard TD run, at least half a dozen tweets during the game confirming that Ohio State is still his leader, and last but not least... a Buckeye sticker on his helmet.

But to be serious for a minute, all the best to TG this year. Stay healthy and have a great season.

Michigan socks ass, Beth.

TUNBUCK89's picture

I'm guessing an OSU headband or wristband. Or maybe he just screams "GO BUCKS" at the camera after he scores a TD. 

FROMTHE18's picture

I doubt he commits, he's set a date. Im sure it'll be some sort of OSU gear. 

OSU069's picture

Probably OSU gloves or an OSU hat. Maybe he will shout Go Bucks to the camera after scoring a touchdown or something.

I'm guessing a block O towel

brandonbauer87's picture

It has to be something more than a simple OSU article of clothing for Birm to say its "sweet".  I'm thinking either a commitment or a nod to Braxton. Probably the latter.

Good call on the number. I couldn't think of anything other than a commitment that would have Birm chiming in like that. But wearing a number 5 jersey? Yeah, I can see that. And it will be great notoriety for OSU when the broadcasters talk about it.

Yeah I got a hunch he'll be dawning #5 today!!!. I've been a harsh critic of this kid, but I'm starting to come around on him. We all have to remember these are kids out here.

i think he's setting up brick walls with scUM logo on them then runs through them wearing OSU gear with Headphones on with Coombs coming through them! or atleast thats what i think a Birms "sweet" definition would be

Don't be silly, he sold some high school football jerseys. They didn't belong to him.

MikeTheBuckeye's picture

A lot of people guessed he is going to commit. Too many. As much as I would love to see it happen, that's thinking a little optimistically. TG set a date, is in no rush, and seems to enjoy the recruiting process. It makes way more sense to commemorate a fallen brother or toss the football around with some fancy buckeye socks.

He needs to commit already. The longer he takes to commit, the more nervous I get about his recruitment.

He commits. But likely leaves his recruitment open, due to his thorough enjoyment of the process...

I was thinking like many of you, maybe OSU gear or a nod to Braxton, but Birm has piqued my interest.

I was thinking after scoring a touchdown he might point to a Block O tattoo on his arm, making it unofficially official 

WezBuck28's picture

He won't even be wearing his school jersey...he will be wearing a buckeye jersey with braxtons number on it..

Knarcisi's picture

I say he wears number 5. 

That would be totally epic if he committed. And show that he loves us. We've had a tough week!  Tis kid likes the attention too much to give up a few more months of pub.

JohnnyKozmo's picture

Anybody think that Braxton saying he will be back for 2015 was the tipping point for TG and that maybe he will actually commit?   I can't imagine this much attention being made because he's wearing OSU socks, gloves, or even a # change.

Id love a commit. But I think it'll be subtle but a very nice gesture, something we will enjoy but nothing earth shattering. I hope if its the case of a nice gesture its something for Braxton, I'd applaud the shit out of that.

osu407's picture

Though I agree that a number change is most likely, I think the fact that he will be on national television could prompt a commitment. 

If so than I think Cager will follow soon after, possibly at the Virginia Tech game. 

QueenCityBuckeye's picture

Assuming this picture was taken today, it looks like TG wearing #5 will not be happening.

I'd love nothing more than a commitment, though. BuckeyeNation could use some good news.

Ahh Saturday's picture

Doubt he'll commit today. I don't have much faith in the Crystal Ball Brigade, but the one thing they seem to be good at is making a herd-like march toward the right school when a commitment is imminent. Word would've leaked by now, but there's been no movement on the CB.
