Ohio State jumps aboard the Photoshop recruiting bandwagon

Mike Gesicki, a 6-foot-6-inch, three-star tight end from Manahawkin, New Jersey, was recently informed by Ohio State he was their “missing piece.”

Gesicki, through his Instagram account, merely replied to this somewhat creepy tactic with a “haha.” It’s safe to assume that these sort of measures were a lot less risky before people—especially high school kids—put everythingon the Internet.

As bad as the “missing piece” ploy may have been, it’s good to know that it could always be worse.

    The creepiest thing about it is that the coaching staff obviously thinks that Gesicki will spend Saturdays at OSU on the sideline (injured?) while the rest of the team is suited up to play.
