Top-30 National Recruit Jaelen Gill Names OSU In Final Schools

Published

Four-star, top-30 national recruit Jaelen Gill — an all-purpose tailback from Westerville, Ohio — named his top schools on Thursday and set his commitment date. Among the schools in contention are Ohio State, UCLA, OU, Oregon, USC, Texas, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Nebraska, Florida and Oklahoma State.

Gill, who was a top target for Marcus Arroyo during his OSU tenure, is likely set on staying close to home. Even if Arroyo was still around, many pundits pegged him as a heavy Ohio State lean. His crystal ball reads 95 percent in favor of the Buckeyes.

Despite suffering a broken fibula a year ago, Gill has remained a top recruit with his 6-foot-1 182-pound frame and his freaky athleticism. In fact, he stars in baseball, too. The possibility of him choosing that route, at one point, was apparently considered.

But his upside in football is tough to ignore, and he’s already one of the country’s top blue chip prospects. Here’s his highlight tape which should fill you in on why.
