OSU frosh Gibson working out at receiver
Apparently switching from quarterback to receiver is what all the cool kids are doing in Columbus.
Braxton Miller, who broke the internet with his position change last month, might have a freshman following in his footsteps.
Reports out of Columbus are that five-star freshman Torrance Gibson worked out at receiver for parts of Friday’s practice.
According to Northeast Ohio Media Group writer Bill Landis, Gibson got action as a gunner and wide receiver while still wearing the black jersey, which are worn by Buckeye quarterbacks.
This, to the media’s knowledge, was the first time that the move had been made.
Buckeye coach Urban Meyer did not address whether or not the move was permanent.
Gibson was ranked No. 16 overall on ESPN’s top 300 recruits in the 2015 class. He was also tabbed the nation’s No. 2 athlete by the publication.
The dual-threat recruit will have the likes of J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones ahead of him on the depth chart if he does work back in with the quarterbacks.
Ohio State will host its media day on Sunday. There might be a few people in attendance.
