**Baugh Makes It Official … When it came to the prospects making official visits to Ohio State this past weekend the main focus, and rightly so, was on the prospects that have yet to make a decision, Vonn Bell, Shelton Gibson, Cameron Hunt and Corn Elder. But there were also a number of prospects making official visits to Ohio State that committed to the Buckeyes long ago including tight end Marcus Baugh.
The Ohio State staff wants Baugh to be a big-time receiving threat along the lines of Urban Meyer’s Aaron Hernandez at Florida.
So we thought we would give you a little information on Baugh and his trip to Columbus.
The Ohio State coaches told Baugh they could see him getting some playing time as a true freshman and they see him more as a “wide receiver” playing the tight end position. Translated, they want Baugh to be a big-time receiving threat along the lines of Urban Meyer’s Aaron Hernandez at Florida.
Baugh spent a decent amount of time with fellow commit Joey Bosa while both were in the Capital City this past weekend, but Baugh also spoke a bit with Bell.
So how did Baugh think Bell’s visit went? “He sounded pretty good,” Baugh said.
**Tricky Nick? … Later on in his recruitment, Mentor (Ohio) Class of 2013 quarterback Mitch Trubisky received some pretty serious interest from Alabama. Yes, Trubisky was a late-rising prospect (that now sits at No. 1 in the recently updated 247Sports dual-threat QB rankings) … but the Crimson Tide?
