Torrance Gibson rocked these Ohio State cleats in a nationally-televised high school football game on ESPN.

Five-star prospect Torrance Gibson, in action today on national television, is paying homage to the school currently in the lead for his services by wearing a custom pair of Ohio State Nike Vapor Talon Elite cleats.

The shoes were custom made for the Ohio State football team, but are available in large numbers on eBay and other sites. The Buckeyes first wore the cleats against Michigan in 2012, with Ohio State going on to win the game 26-21.

Gibson's American Heritage School (FL) is hosting Florida power – and high school of Ohio State freshman wide receiver Johnnie Dixon – Dwyer in an ESPN high school football kickoff weekend event.

Here are a couple of other looks at the cleats:

Someone is going to be the short man out. The person coming in for QB is going to have to have some character. Say Miller starts next year. JT potentially 2 years after that. Collier fighting for playing time. Homeboy might be sitting for first 3 years (1 redshirt).

2017, if Barrett ends up declaring early (legitimate possibility as he will probably have graduated by then anyways), it'll be a battle between TG, Burrow, Collier and a guy like Haskins for that starting job. Oh, and Danny Clark as a true frosh. That's going to be insane.

I want to be hyped for this guy but I'm just not impressed. I mean, Dwyer has no problem passing on first down with their QB and nobody is even talking about him. Gibson is only throwing on obvious passing downs and chucking. I mean, at the QB position, do we really want him as the starter for tOSU?

And you know THIS....man!

-4 HS
CuseGirl's picture

His physical is obvious. I'm not doubting that. It's just the fact that the playcalling shows they don't trust him to run the offense with his arm. And Buck fans are clamoring for him to commit to tOSU, even though we've seen twice what happens when you have freak athletes learning to be QBs in college. There's always a ceiling that gets reached.

Now if he commits and proves to be accurate and smart with the ball as a Buckeye, I'll gladly eat crow for it, because it'll mean tOSU is winning big games. But his tape has and continues to worry me.

And you know THIS....man!

collards's picture

Maybe not the one he bounced, but I really like him.

Here is the thing. What if JT tears them up this year. Will Gibson still want to come? Would we still need him?

Collards

CuseGirl's picture

Those are two different issues. You always want stacked position groups. Remember, when Meyer was at Florida, he had Tebow starting, with Cam as the #2. John Brantley (who ended up as a bust) was the #2 QB in his class. He was #3 on the chart behind Cam. So big time recruits are still willing to commit to schools with guys ahead of them. Look at Alabama. The football gods have decided they are entitled to an NFL caliber runningback every year on the recruiting trail. They keep committing.

Gibson needs work. So no matter where he goes, he has to sit. If Barrett is a star, he'll be leaving after his Sophmore redshirt year? So Gibson wouldn't be sitting that long.

And you know THIS....man!

Toilrt Paper's picture

.I don't care what happens to QBs after college. What I care about is how they play QB for Ohio State. In recent history: Craig Krenzil, a VERY bright individual with above average QB skills won a BCS Title. Troy Smith won a Heisman. Terrell Pryor the #1 overall player in his class. The last we saw of him before trading his stuff for tattoos was beating the #2 SEC team. Braxton Miller, the only player in the history of the BigTen to win the Most Valuable Offensive Player of the Year two years in a row. Now JT Barrett who was rated as the #1 duo threat QB in is class when a Junior, before knee surgery early in his Senior year. ALL of which had passing issues to work on in college. For that matter 99% of HS QBs have passing skills to improve on in college

 TG would just be the next man up.

If you aren't a teenager you will remember Vince Young. The QB that is the closest in comparison.

Gibson could make the memories of Braxton fade faster.

Shoes?? I remember when Ohio State ran a foul of the NCAA for giving Damon Flint an Ohio State a gym bag.

Damon Flint.  Huggins set that up 100%.  Hate the bastard.

I don't think Vince Young is close at all in comparison. Totally different delivery and Gibson's arm is much stronger. I think Vick is the best comparison, nevermind the obvious lefty.

Vick is 6-0 and the fastest QB ever. TG is 6-5 same as Vince Young, both are/were fast but not Vick fast. You last saw Young as an NFL QB. Our knowledge of TG is his first game as a HS Senior.

Wasn't sure what to expect from his passing, was very impressed with what I saw. Ready for Heisman or HOF? Of course not. But a good foundation to start with. And has his receiver met Coach Urban "Flip" Meyers yet?

Yes but is he a distributor?

Well that is actually pretty cool. Always good to see tOSU being repped on the national level

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.
