The Ohio State football program is hoping to unwrap a recruiting gift on Christmas Eve.

That’s because five-star wide receiver Zachariah Branch has narrowed his list to four of the blue bloods of college football, and announced his final decision forthcoming on Christmas Eve.

At 5-foot, 9-inches, and 172-pounds, Branch is listed as the No. 2 wide receiver and 14th overall prospect in the 2023 class according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. The other schools in his final four include Alabama, Oklahoma, and USC.

Now for the bad news. It would be quite a surprise if OSU came out on top for Branch’s services. He is considered a rather heavy lean to USC, and anything outside of that would be an eyebrow-raising announcement here in a few days.

Either way, we’ll be on top of the news when it comes down on Christmas Eve. What we do know is that Branch could do a lot worse than coming to play for Ohio State and the teachings of Brian Hartline.
