Buckeyes Check in at No. 4 for Torrance Gibson

Torrance Gibson has announced his top-15 list and Ohio State currently sits fourth - behind Tennessee, Auburn and LSU. After being named one of his top-three schools just recently, dropping to fourth is somewhat of a surprise.

While LSU at No. 3 is surprising, the Buckeyes being behind Tennessee and Auburn is not. In fact, Ohio State is in pretty good shape considering Gibson has not yet been to Columbus.  In fact, the Buckeyes are the highest on his list among those that have not yet been visited, which is good news. Gibson is expected to visit Ohio State at some point this summer and likely again in the fall, so the Buckeyes have plenty of time and opportunities to surpass the three schools ahead of them. Additionally, positioning themselves well with the likes of Damien Harris, Christian Kirk and Chris Clark will only help Ohio State moving forward.

Yes, it is disappointing that Ohio State isn't higher on his list but they remain one of the schools to beat for him and will still have an excellent shot of landing him when it's all said and done.
