Ohio State added another highly-rated commit to their 2013 recruiting class Sunday, when St. Louis John Burroughs School tailback Ezekiel Elliott pledged to the Buckeyes. Elliott is the sixth commit for the current Buckeye recruiting class.

Ezekiel Elliott committed to Ohio State Sunday, while on an unofficial visit to the school. The four-star prospect becomes the sixth commit to the 2013 Buckeye recruiting class.

Elliott, 6-foot, 195-pounds, is from St. Louis John Burroughs School, and had an impressive offer list, including Notre Dame, Georgia, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, and others.

"I have committed to Ohio State," Elliott stated. "It was the right school for me, both for football and academically. I fell in love on my visit. Coach (Urban) Meyer is a great man, who is going to do great things for the program, and I want to be a part of it."

As a junior, Elliott rushed for over 1,800 yards, had 400 receiving yards, and scored 42 touchdowns. He is currently ranked as the number-nine rated runningback in America.
