One of Ohio State’s top 2020 commits will visit Columbus in March. Gee Scott Jr.’s father told Eleven Warriors that him and his son will be visiting Ohio State to watch a spring practice on March 29. Scott Jr. still has one more year of eligibility left of high school but has been committed to Ohio State since late last year.
Scott Jr. has had a very impressive three years of high school at Eastside Catholic in Sammamish, Washington. His size and speed convinced Ohio State and the coaching staff to send him an offer. Through his time at East Catholic thus far, he has 99 catches, 1,684 yards and 21 touchdowns, and is sure to improve upon these numbers during his senior season starting next fall.
Scott Jr. has great size for a high school junior at 6-foot-3, 211 pounds and that will come in handy for an Ohio State team who could use some size at the wideout position. He will look to build on that size and add some speed and muscle before he gets to Columbus and before he gets some real Big Ten snaps.
Scott Jr. is another West Coast recruit that head coach Ryan Day was able to bring into the fold. The Buckeyes have been on the West Coast a lot, and plan on bringing in more of that talent to Ohio, with the help of Gee Scott Jr. himself of course.
I want to make THE Ohio State 2020 class the best class in college football history...... https://t.co/kw3Z0dsZnX— Gee Scott Jr. (@geescottjr) February 26, 2019
With tweets like this and him coming to Columbus to watch a spring practice this month, everyone can tell that Scott Jr. is excited to get started as a Buckeye. It will be interesting to follow his senior year and see just how much he improves upon an extremely successful junior season.
For OSU, Scott Jr. isn’t the only big name heading to Columbus. It was already stated back in February that four-star 2020 offensive lineman Reece Atteberry was coming for a visit. Unlike the wide receiver, Atteberry is still going through the recruitment process. However, these visits—whether unofficial or official—matter, and can put Day in very good position to have a stellar 2020 recruiting cycle if all goes well.
