Ohio State Lands Commitment From 2017 WR Elijah Gardiner

The Buckeyes have added a former Missouri commit.

Elijah Gardiner, a three-star wide receiver in the 2017 class committed to Missouri, has flipped.

He's now committed to Ohio State.

The 6-foot-5, 185-pound prospect out of Texas announced his commitment on Twitter.

"Thanks to all the schools that have recruited me but my family and I have decided to further my career at The Ohio State University."

Gardiner's commitment comes on the same day he was offered by Ohio State. He announced on Twitter earlier today that he had received a scholarship offer from Urban Meyer's program after visiting Columbus.

Gardiner is the No. 172 WR and No. 1,215 player in the 2017 class per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Ohio State's 2017 class is the No. 2 class in the country.
