“I went down to practice with my mom and dad,” Brown said. “They
were going to take me on a tour, but I’ve done that before so they took
my parents. While they did that I watched film with coach (Jim)
Bollman.

“Then I met with coach (Jim) Tressel in his office. He talked about
everything in life and he let me know they wanted me. He said I have an
offer so I told him I was going to commit. He was excited.”

The 6-foot-5 and 300-pound Brown was a starter at right tackle and
defensive end during his sophomore season. He played the same two
positions his junior season.

“(Ohio State) said I’ll play somewhere
along the offensive line, probably tackle,” Brown said.

It was certainly not a surprise Brown committed as soon as the offer
came. Ohio
State
has long
been his favorite school.

“I’ve always wanted to go to Ohio State,”
Brown said. “I’ve always been an Ohio State
fan. I feel like I’m home
there.”

And with that the Bucks have eight commitments for their 2011
recruiting class and four offensive linemen. In addition to Brown,
offensive linemen Chris Carter Jr. (Cleveland, Ohio/John Kennedy),
Antonio Underwood (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights), and Brian Bobek
(Palatine, Ill./Fremd) have committed to Ohio State.
