Visit Has Buckeyes On Top

Cleveland Heights speedster Shelton Gibson was in Columbus yesterday watching Ohio State defeat Michigan 26-21. The top 2013 prospect has a fine offer list, and is in the process of setting up official visits.

Shelton Gibson was the first Ohio underclassmen offered by Urban Meyer shortly after he accepted the Ohio State head coaching job. The Cleveland Heights wide receiver was in Columbus Saturday to watch the Buckeyes defeat Michigan.

"Oh man, it was crazy at Ohio State and things were great," Gibson stated. "I was able to hang out with Jalin Marshall and Cam Burrows, and a few other guys in their recruiting class. They are all real cool guys. Being down on the field for pre-game was great, and I was glad to see them come out with the win."

"I've been down there before, but this was way different for me and a lot better," he added. "People were yelling at me at Eddie George's restaurant, and it was a lot of fun. Ohio State has always been on top, but this visit just puts them further up on top. After the game, I spoke with Coach (Urban) Meyer and Coach (Zach) Smith. This coming Monday, Coach (Stan) Drayton will be coming to my school, and I'm looking forward to that a lot."

"We talked about me taking my official visit to Ohio State, and I think I'm going to do that when I get back from the Under Armour All-American game in January," he continued.

Gibson, 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, is the burner at wide receiver that several teams are looking for, and he will take his first official visit this coming weekend.

"I'm going to West Virginia this week for an official and I'm looking forward to that a lot," Gibson said. "It will be good to talk to the coaches, and be able to see how they run their offense from up close. I really want to see Tavon Austin play, and this should be a great visit."

"Oregon has also been talking to me and my coach," he reported. "I would definitely take an official there if they would offer me, and I have high interest in that school. I would like to take all five visits, and most of them should be after the holidays." Recommended Stories
