It’s been no secret that the Ohio State Buckeyes have been hot on the trail of five-star quarterback prospect Torrance Gibson throughout the 2015 recruiting process. They were once considered one of the front runners in the race, however the program was stung hard recently when he dropped them to the bottom of his list.
When the news of the drop came out, there were a lot of fans associated with Ohio State football that just wanted to throw in the towel and move on.
Well, hold your horses.
In the blog post that he has on USA TODAY, Gibson specifically mentioned that he will be taking a trip to Columbus to visit with the Buckeyes and the coaching staff, which is generally something a recruit doesn’t do if they’re not considering a school any longer.
“After the (recent) visit, I would still have to say that Tennessee is the leader for me right now,” Gibson wrote. “I want to try and visit Ohio State this summer before my season kicks off. I want to visit UCF, too.”
Now that’s not a guarantee that he’ll be coming to Columbus to play his college football, but it’s definitely a good sign for their prospects of landing him, giving Ohio State their second quarterback commit of the class.
