Jalen Suggs is one of the top basketball prospects in the Class of 2020, and Ohio State is looking to land the 6-foot-3, 185-pound point guard from Minneapolis. However, Ohio State doesn’t want him for basketball.
Although ESPN ranks Suggs as a 5-star basketball recruit and the No. 4 overall player in his class, he is also a talented quarterback. Ohio State extended a scholarship offer to Suggs to play quarterback, and the student at Minnehaha Academy Upper School in Minneapolis, Minn., shared the news on Twitter.

While most of Suggs’ scholarship offers are for basketball, he has received offers for football from a few schools, including Nebraska, Iowa State, Minnesota and Arizona State.
Among the schools Suggs has received basketball offers from are Marquette, Minnesota, Iowa State, Iowa, Baylor and Georgia Tech.
While he is a 5-star basketball prospect, 247Sports has Suggs as a 3-star football recruit. According to 247Sports composite rankings, Suggs is the No. 1 player from Minnesota in his class and the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback prospect.
Although it appears Suggs is considered a better basketball prospect than football prospect, his football rankings may improve over the next year. No matter which sport he decides to play in college and where, Suggs can take comfort in knowing he has plenty of options.
