2017 outside linebacker Baron Browning

Browning, the country’s second-ranked outside linebacker, is a 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect from Kennedale, Texas.

The recruitment of Browning has been interesting for a while. In the last two weeks, however, it’s been a roller coaster. For months, Ohio State had been viewed as a primary contender in this recruitment, with the primary competition rotating, seemingly weekly. It was TCU, it was Michigan, it was Notre Dame – and recently, and most seriously, it has been Alabama. Browning visited the Tide in mid-October. Since that trip, things appeared to be headed in that direction.

Then, as Ohio State hosted Michigan in Ohio Stadium last week, Browning made his official visit with the Buckeyes. Though he arrived in Columbus late, the visit could not have gone better. Ohio State had blown away Browning and his parents during his first visit to the school in May and did so again in November. With a planned commitment date of Nov. 29, the Buckeyes had just one day to try to convince Browning to not commit to Alabama. He didn’t. Suddenly, all the momentum that the Tide had gained swung back toward the Buckeyes.

On Wednesday night, four Ohio State coaches – Urban Meyer, Tim Beck, Luke Fickell and Greg Schiano – were in Kennedale to visit Browning.
