High School Carrer
The 6'2" 178lbs dual-threat quarterback put up decent numbers over three years of starting for Eisenhower High School. As a sophomore he passed for over 800 yards with 6 touchdowns. Then over his junior and senior seasons he completed over 50% of his passes for more than 3,200 yards and 34 touchdowns with 18 interceptions. Mostly in the shot gun, he doesn't show blazing speed but can get out of the pocket and make plays on the ground when he needs to.
Quick Recruiting Pickup
Guiton was considering his other scholarship offers before Ohio State came knocking on Wednesday of this week. The Buckeye coaching staff stopped in and pickup up the recruit's film, calling him back on Thursday with an offer to play for the Scarlet and Gray. He will be visiting Columbus this weekend after a Friday night basketball game. The young man seems very excited to have the offer and has a solid GPA at 3.3 with a suitable test score in hand.
