Merry Christmas! Did Santa leave everything that you asked for under the tree this morning? If not, take solace in the fact that the Ohio State Buckeyes got a really exciting present today in the form of their sixth commitment for the 2020 class. Four-star wide receiver Gee Scott Jr. made his pledge to the Buckeyes official to celebrate the holiday.

I am 100% Committed... https://t.co/JlGFZKuKrM
The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Sammamish, Wash., native joins the class as the 70th-ranked player in the country, 15th WR, and second best prospect from the Evergreen State, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. Scott chose Ohio State over Florida, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, Oregon, USC, Washington and a number of other major programs.
Scott becomes the second committed receiver in the class, joining Texas four-star Jaxon Smith-Njigba, but he likely won’t be the last as the combination of new head coach Ryan Day and new full-time WR coach Brian Hartline has become an attractive pairing for skill position players on the recruiting trail.
With this commitment, the Buckeyes leapfrog Miami and Florida, and currently sit with the third best 2020 class behind Alabama and LSU. But, with one five-star commit and five four-stars, OSU has the highest per player average (95.75) in the country.
Welcome to the family, Gee! And Merry Christmas to all. Our Patrick Mayhorn will break down what this commitment means to the Buckeyes shortly, so keep an eye out for that.
