Remember last summer when a certain team from up north decided it would be cool to flip an OSU recruit from the 2012 class while OSU was in the worst of the tattoo scandal and vulnerable? Well if you don’t I can assure you Coach Meyer does and he just took the first in what could be a few revenge hits back at Coach Hoke and TTUN. Coming off the 12-0 season and the victory over TTUN the Wolverines 2nd highest ranked recruit who was at the game against the rules of Coach Hoke decommitted from the program a week later and took an official visit to OSU that started yesterday and will end tonight but he didnt even make it out of the visit before he committed to become the no 18 recruit for OSUs 2013 class. So here he is….
Gareon Conley is a 6’2″ 175 lbs 4 star DB/WR from Massilon, Ohio. Gareon is being recruited to OSU as an athlete because well he is good enough to play either Defense or Offense. He is a speedster with great hands and feet but he can also hit and cover the WRs with the best of them. If you want to compare him to anyone from OSU past it is definitely Chris Gamble. ESPN ranks Gareon as a 4 star in their ESPN 150 and the 65th best prospect in the country. 247sports ranks him a Top247 at no. 229 and the 17th best DB. Scouts ranks him as a 4 star and the 17th best DB. Rivals ranks him a 3 star and the 40th best prospect in Ohio strangely. Below you can watch his Jr. season highlights.
