We mentioned earlier that this weekend would be huge for Ohio State recruiting, and we’re starting to hear whispers that a lot of prospects really liked what they saw.
It’s not whispers, though, coming from St. Louis area running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has given his verbal to be the sixth member of the 2013 Ohio State recruiting class.
Elliott, who’s offers included Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, and Georgia recently had a solid visit to Notre Dame and is reported to have almost committed while there. Today, however, he becomes the latest member of the scarlet and gray.
One of the top hurdlers in the nation, he’s also projected as the top player in the state of Missouri. His measurables- 6’0″, 195 pounds, 4.4 forty yard dash; he’s the 9th ranked running back in the class of 2013 and a current four star athlete. Film and more after the jump.
Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Ezekiel!
