Ryan Day and Brian Hartline continue their strong efforts on the trail with a Christmas commitment from four-star wideout Gee Scott Jr.
Gee announced his commitment to Ohio State on Twitter, with a video:
The Scott Jr. File
- Class: 2020
- Size: 6-foot-3, 211 pounds
- Pos: WR
- School: Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Washington)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★
- Composite Rank: 15 (WR)
The No. 15 receiver and country's No. 70 overall prospect in the Class of 2020, Scott Jr. is a player the staff has prioritized dating back to October when he made the trip to Columbus to take in the game against Indiana. Teammate and 2020 safety/running back Sam Adams II was also on hand for the festivities. Both prospects earned offers before leaving town.
A native of Sammamish, Washington, Scott holds a number of early offers that span across the country. Programs like USC, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, and LSU have all thrown their hats in the ring, but heading into Tuesday's commitment, most expected this one would come down to the Buckeyes and Fighting Irish.
Though he won't sign until next December at the earliest, Scott has done plenty of work checking out some of America's top schools. He's been to USC, UCLA, Wisconsin, Washington, Oregon, and Florida to name a few. But it was the trip to Columbus that clearly left the greatest impression on the junior wideout.
In three seasons at Eastside Catholic, he's hauled in 99 passes for 1,684 yards and 21 touchdowns. At 6-foot-3 and over 200 pounds, Scott is a physical wideout who's been known to punish opposing defensive backs (evidence HERE). He's on track to bring some solid size and physicality to Brian Hartline's wide receiver room.
Last month he helped lead the Crusaders to Washington's Class 3A state football championship. Scott caught seven passes for 56 yards and added a rushing score in the team's 31-13 victory over defending champion O'Dea (Seattle)
The sixth commitment in Ohio State's 2020 recruiting class, he joins Jaxon Smith-Njigba to form a solid foundation at wide receiver. The Buckeyes added Garrett Wilison and Jameson Williams for 2019, and the expectation is that Hartline could take as many as four or five wideouts for the 2020 class.
Eleven Warriors will have more on Gee Scott Jr.'s commitment shortly.
