Five-star outside linebacker Baron Browning committed to Ohio State Thursday night, giving the Buckeyes 16 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


A day after Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes lost a 4-star commit, they replaced him with a 5-star prospect.

Baron Browning, the No. 2 outside linebacker and No. 25 overall player in the nation, committed to Ohio State Thursday night, giving the Buckeyes 16 total commits. Ohio State now moves back up from No. 4 to No. 2 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings.

The Kennedale, Texas prospect released a statement regarding his decision.

“Football has taken me places I never imagined before, and I’m forever grateful for the lord blessing me with this opportunity, not to mention all the great people I’ve met and the relationships I’ve built that I know will last a lifetime. I’d like to say thank you to my coaches, my teammates, my family, my school, my community, my teachers, my parents, and last but not least Fort Worth. I can’t describe how much joy I have for being where I’m from. It has made me the man I am today. I’ve learned valuable lessons, life morals from my city, but I’ve also witnessed my city trap great people from reaching their full potential. It’s a blessing and a curse some might say to be where I’m from, but I know it’s all a part of God’s plan for me. Growing up, all I knew was Fort Worth, but I think it’s time for me to spread my wings. With that being said, I would like to announce my commitment to the Ohio State University. When it all came down to it, I truly felt like this was the place for me to grow as a person, athlete and student.”

Browning’s pledge to Ohio State comes a day after he received an in-home visit from Meyer and some other Buckeyes assistants.

At 6-foot-4, 230 lbs Browning is extremely athletic and well rounded as a linebacker. He has the versatility to play on the edge or in the middle of the second level and will give the Buckeyes plenty of options to move him around on defense.
