Guiton is all set to be a Buckeye

It looks like the Ohio State Buckeyes have landed their man at quarterback. Houston (Texas) Eisenhower quarterback Kenny Guiton had been seeing some interest from teams in the Big XII and the WAC but Ohio State recently stepped up to the table and a Buckeye offer was too much to turn down for the 6-foot-2, 178-pounder.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported that Guiton has accepted the recent offer to join the Buckeyes. Guiton and his father are scheduled to be in Columbus over the weekend.

Rivals.com has Guiton listed as the 35th best dual threat quarterback in the nation and also rated as a 3-star prospect. During Guiton's three seasons as quarterback for Eisenhower he has amassed 40 passing touchdowns to go along with more than 5100 yards of passing. Guiton also has the ability to tuck the ball and run and during his junior year rushed for nine touchdowns via the ground.

The Buckeyes only have two quarterbacks on scholarship currently with Terrelle Pryor and Joe Bauserman on the depth chart. There was concern that the Buckeyes might have to look at moving one of their defensive backs or even Grant Schwartz to quarterback to help with depth but now with a third quarterback on his way to Columbus that move may be unnecessary.

Guiton should easily get past the NCAA clearinghouse with a 3.3 GPA and a 1340 on the SAT.

BuckeyeGrove.com will have more on this breaking news during the afternoon on the 25th member of the Ohio State recruiting class.
