Marcus Baugh Is A Buckeye!

Mr. Baugh

It’s not typical for me to get to post about recruits from my neck of the woods, but today that changes with news that Riverside California’s Marcus Baugh has given his verbal commitment to be a part of Ohio State’s 2013 class.

The 6’4″, 215 pound Baugh is the seventh ranked TE in the country by Scout, and is currently listed as a four star athlete. He held offers from Florida, Nebraska, UCLA, Washington, and Miami, and is Ohio State’s 8th recruit for this class.

While it’s been anticipated for a while that the Buckeyes would take two tight ends in this class, North Carolina’s Josh McNeil was expected to be the bookend with Florida’s Mike Heuerman. However, today McNeil was offered by Oregon and expressed excitement about that opportunity… ah, the world of high school kids. Who knows what will happen?

Back to Marcus, his strengths are anticipated as being his speed and his ability to be a downfield threat- too fast for a linebacker, too big for a safety to cover. You can see his junior highlights and so forth after the jump:

Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Mr. Baugh- Cali, represent!!

    Needless to say, this is a very pleasant surprise for the recruiting class.

    Mike Heuerman will be deciding on the 27th and if things go as planned that would wrap up the tight ends/H-backs with two versatile and extremely talented athletes. Muy Bueno.

    The kid can play defense too. Looks to be a pretty good pickup. Good stuff. Screw the blue! Brandy Joke and his turds may have won the game last season but I don’t expect that to happen again while Meyer is coach. Hell, Joke wouldn’t have won last year if Tressel had been coaching, despite the terrible assistants he had on offense (Bollman and Siciliano to name a couple).

    Tremendous defensive end if needed. Now just throw to him as a TE and stop talking about it.
