Usually I wouldn’t redo a recruiting post but Ezekiel committed to OSU nearly a year ago and since then he and his family have become favorites of Buckeye Nation on Twitter. A few weeks back Zeke as he is known made a visit to his home state school and the Alma Mater of both his parents. This ruffled the feathers of some OSU fans and made most of them nervous. I never really bought the whole thing and just felt like he was enjoying the process and free trips. In the end he proved me right and today he confirmed to the world he is 100% Buckeye.
Ezekiel Elliott is a 6’1″ 210 lbs RB from St. Loui, Missouri. Big Zeke is a scat back at heart. He isnt small by any sense of the word but has elusiveness and shiftyness that will fit so well in Urbans system. He has great hands and will be a threat to catch the ball a lot and make plays out wide. Rivals ranks him a 4 star and 84th best prospect in the country. ESPN ranks him a 4 star and 109th best recruit in the country. Scout ranks him a 4 star and 9th best RB in the nation. 247sports ranks him a 4 star and 70th best recruit in the country. Below you can view his highlight reel.
