Ohio State’s recruiting run at the wide receiver position doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon. The Buckeyes had a few elite targets on hand for last week’s win over Penn State, including Douglasville (Ga.) Douglas County star Aaron Gregory.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound receiver is an early five-star prospect.
“It was great,” Gregory told BuckeyeHuddle.com of the visit. “The crowd, the coaches, everything was great. I loved meeting and talking with the coaches. The players seem like they have a great bond with them as well.”
Gregory was able to continue to build his relationship with Ohio State offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Brian Hartline.
“Coach Hartline likes my game and me as a player. Definitely wants to get me back to spend some time on campus and just build a bond as a future receiver,
Hartline backed up those words when he offered Gregory the day after the Penn State game.. It was a great 16th birthday present for the rising star and an emotional moment in his recruiting process.
“(I feel) excited. Blessed. Shocked. Happy. All of the above.”
Ohio State has been a school of interest for Gregory since he started watching football. The recent run under Hartline, however, has turbocharged that interest.”
“I’ve always been a fan,” he recalled. “But it’s cool that coach Hartline played there and is now a coach at Ohio State. He seems very hands on with his receivers room.”
Gregory already holds more than 25 offers. You can watch his mid-season sophomore year highlights below.
