It’s official, Torrance Gibson is coming to Columbus.
Everything had pointed to an Ohio State commitment for the class of 2015 four-star quarterback out of Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage, but the signal caller made it official in an announcement at his high school Monday afternoon as he accepted his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey.
The nation’s No. 6 quarterback and No. 45 overall player in the 2015 class according to Scout, Gibson made just one official visit in his recruitment, roaming the sidelines for Ohio State’s win over Cincinnati Sept. 28. He said the Buckeyes were the leaders in the pursuit of his services after attending the Friday Night Lights event in July.
One of the most athletic and dynamic players in the nation at his position, Gibson held offers from Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma, LSU, Notre Dame and Florida State among others.
The Florida product is the second quarterback for Ohio State in the 2015 class, joining four-star commitment Joey Burrow. The Buckeyes had been looking to bring in two signal callers in the 2015 class throughout the recruiting cycle.
Gibson joins a class that had been ranked the 14th best in the nation by Scout.com before his addition. Ohio State now has 19 commitments in the class with nine four-star prospects.
