Torrance Gibson names Ohio State leader after 5-star QB visits Buckeyes

Torrance Gibson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla. American Heritage) knows he will be committing on October 20 and after a visit to Ohio State over the weekend, his pick for that day has received a great deal of clarity after naming Ohio State his new leader.

The 6-4, 203-pound recruit is a five-star recruit as an athlete but is being recruited to be a quarterback and plays a similar dual-threat style of current Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, although Gibson is a little taller and a little more sinewy.

“I had a great time and I met a lot of people. I’ve seen a lot of new faces and I just had a ball at Friday Night Lights.

Gibson named the Tennessee Volunteers his leader on June. 12 after jockeying back-and-forth with Auburn and LSU, UCF, Arizona, Oklahoma and Ohio State in the mix.

However, after his visit to Columbus blew him away, he once again named a new leader and it he says it isn’t changing anymore, then does that mean he’s a lock to commit?

“It was more (than I thought it would be),” Gibson tells Cleveland.com of his first trip to Columbus. “The campus is beautiful. It was big, too. Columbus is a great place with an awesome stadium, and they’re building more (seats). It’s going to be crazy this year. I can’t wait to come back here.”

Gibson passed for 1,789 yards with 19 touchdowns to only three interceptions last season as a junior while adding 1,063 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground on 111 attempts. He is ranked as the No. 26 overall recruit in the nation, No. 2 athlete and the No. 7 recruit in the state of Florida.
