Ezekiel Elliott Claims He'll Go To Prom With A 2015 OSU Recruit If His Tweet Gets 50,000 Retweets

Over the past few years, it's become somewhat of a trend for high school students to ask celebrities to prom - and it usually involves the asking party getting some ridiculous number of retweets on Twitter to make it happen. Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott seems to be going a slightly different route to find his way to a prom this year.

Elliott took to Twitter Monday morning to proclaim that if his tweet (seen below) gets 50,000 retweets, he'll make Ohio State 2015 commit Nick Conner take him to prom. It's probably a joke, but it's still something we haven't quite seen before.

Conner, for the record, is a four-star inside linebacker who chose OSU over dozens of other top programs.

There is probably no rule against Elliott attending Conner's prom as his date, but we'd still be shocked if this actually happens. Still, it's amusing either way.
