Already locking in pledges from safety Bryson Shaw and linebacker Cade Stover, Ohio State’s epic weekend on the recruiting trail has now gotten even better.
After what some around the scene called a slow start, Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class is currently sitting at nine verbal pledges thanks to the commitment of five-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson on Sunday night.
I sacrificed time, fun, and relationships to be in this position. Recruiting is a grueling process, but god showed me the way. I got unfinished business in the 614... I’m coming home. #TTWFO pic.twitter.com/W9xRyot1Bs— Garrett Wilson (@GarrettWilson_V) April 30, 2018
Fresh off of official visits to Ohio State and the University Texas, Wilson, who grew up in Central Ohio before moving to the Austin, Texas-area, chose to come back to his roots and suit up in the Scarlet and Gray over the opportunity to play for former OSU assistant coach Tom Herman and the Longhorns.
Considered the fifth-best wide receiver, and 29th overall prospect, in the entire class of 2019, according to the latest 247Sports Composite Rankings, the 6-foot, 185-pound standout will add another scoring threat to the Buckeyes’ offense when he arrives in Columbus.
A Lake Travis High School teammate of current Ohio State true-freshman quarterback Matthew Baldwin, Garrett, and Matthew hooked up time and time again to help their squad make a deep run in the Texas state playoffs.
Hauling in nearly 100 receptions, the junior accounted for over 1,700 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air for the Cavaliers, who finished the year at 13-3.
Just like every other year since he’s arrived in Columbus, Urban Meyer and OSU are well on their way to another star-studded recruiting class. Previously pegged as the 10th recruiting class in the country, Wilson’s pledge now pushes the Buckeyes to the seventh spot.
