Urban Meyer has hit the ground running on recruiting and is working

Buckeyes and it goes out to a top in-state junior, Cleveland Heights wide receiver Shelton Gibson.

“Not
even an hour ago I talked to coach Meyer,” Gibson said. “My coach
called me. He was on the phone with coach Meyer. We made it a 3-way call
and he offered.”

Gibson already had scholarship offers from Auburn, Duke, East
Carolina and Bowling Green. But this one surprised him.

“I was very surprised,” Gibson said. “I just got an offer from
Auburn on Saturday, but I didn’t know this one was going to happen.

“Coach Meyer said he got to O-State today and people told him he
had to talk to this kid. He said I was the first person he has offered
for 2013 for Ohio State. I’m super happy I’m the first guy he has
offered for Ohio State.”

The 6-foot-0 and 175-pound Gibson had a huge junior season. He
caught 46 passes with eight touchdowns as Cleveland Heights went 9-0
before a 1st round playoff loss to Lakewood St. Edward.

Meyer may have saved the day for the Buckeyes when it comes to
Gibson.

“I was very close to committing to Auburn,” Gibson said. “But my
mom said to sit down and think about things. Auburn is still my top
school. But now I won’t decide soon. I have to talk to my family and do a
lot of research and visit some schools.”

And where does Ohio State stand?

“I like Ohio State a lot,” Gibson said.

Kurelic’s Comment: If Meyer had not gotten on this one
right away it may have been too late. Now the Buckeyes have a very
legitimate shot.
