Gibson Signs With Ohio State

Ohio State fans were elated last November when Torrance Gibson committed to Ohio State, and despite some late visits the four-star quarterback announces he will sign with the Buckeyes.

Perhaps the biggest impact player in Ohio State's class, four-star quarterback Torrance Gibson of Plantation, Fla., announced this morning at American Heritage High School that he will be a Buckeye.

The No. 52 player in his class, Gibson recently visited Auburn, LSU and Miami but is sticking with Ohio State, who he committed to in November after taking an official visit for the Cincinnati game Sept. 28.

He is the No. 5-rated QB in the nation and one of the best athletes in the country.

"There is so much to like about Gibson," Scout analyst Jamie Newberg said. "What really jumps out at you is that this kid has unreal athleticism. If Scout had an athlete category he would be a five-star recruit.

"Gibson has a very good combination of size and speed. As a quarterback he’s an ultra-dangerous runner, whether it’s by design within the zone read system or when things break down and Gibson must ad-lib. He has superior scrambling skills. On the field he’s rarely caught. He’s not one of those ultra-quick elusive players, rather a guy that can just make a cut and blow right by a defender. Gibson is a long strider who can cover a lot of ground in a hurry.

"As a thrower he makes some of his best plays on the move. He has adequate arm-strength."
