This week's Better Know a Buckeye feature continues with a profile of Ellijah Gardiner, a wide receiver from Kemp, Texas.
Ellijah Gardiner's recruitment is among the most peculiar you'll read in any Better Know a Buckeye feature. It's not uncommon for Ohio State to dig deep into its catalog to find available prospects at the eleventh hour. It is uncommon, however, for that prospect to be so far off the radar he had zero scholarship offers entering October of his senior year. This was the case of Ellijah Gardiner, a Missouri pledge from November whose recruitment suddenly attracted strong attention from Texas and Ohio State in January.
