Ezekiel Elliott Is A Buckeye!

All Smiles

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!

    Quick back- check.

    Now let’s bring in a bruiser (Derrick Green, preferably).

    Glad to see one of my predictions on RB has come true…I also hope Green’s next. I’m not surprised to hear that Derrick Green’s been taking some visits but I’ve heard he’s leaning Clemson since his last visit there. Have you heard anything Jim?

    I believe the Clemson report was via twitter as a passing comment from a national reporter following his visit there, I didn’t put much stock in it at the time. Unless there is more to it than that, I am not concerned.
