Meyer Wins Battle For Brown

It has been a busy time on the Ohio State recruiting front and there is more good news for Buckeye fans as Urban Meyer and company have landed yet another 4-star prospect. Wide receiver Noah Brown (Sparta, N.J./Pope John XXIII) has committed to Ohio State. Brown has been on an official visit to OSU this weekend.

The Buckeyes recruited Brown as an X receiver and a kickoff returner.

Brown picked the Buckeyes over scholarship offers from Rutgers, Virginia Tech, USC, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Michigan State and North Carolina. Those were his final eight, but Brown had many other offers as well.

The 6-foot-2 and 212-pound Brown had a great junior season that included 847 yards rushing on just 98 attempts with 14 touchdowns. He also caught 41 passes for 630 yards.

The Buckeyes have recruited Brown as someone that could play any of the receiver positions, but first and foremost as an X receiver, and possibly a kick returner. Brown took back five kickoffs for touchdowns during his junior season.

Brown, who was recruited by Ed Warinner and Zach Smith, attended the Ohio State-Michigan game last season and also visited Ohio State in late July as well as his official visit this weekend.

Brown, a 4-star prospect, is the country’s No. 201 overall prospect, the No. 12 “athlete,” and the No. 8 prospect in the state of New Jersey in the 247Sports rankings.

Brown is Buckeye commitment No. 18 for a 2014 recruiting class that is expected to number at least 22 come National Signing Day.
