COLUMBUS — Ohio State continued to strengthen its latest blue-chip recruiting class with the commitment of four-star receiver Noah Brown.
Brown, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound Sparta, N.J., native, became the Buckeyes' 18th pledge in the 2014 class after making his official campus visit last weekend.
As a junior last season, Brown caught 41 passes for 630 yards and six touchdowns and rushed for 847 yards and 14 touchdowns. He had offers from Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Southern California among others, though his recruitment was widely believed to be a two-team race between Rutgers and OSU.
Ohio State's 2014 class is ranked third by Rivals.com and fourth by Scout.com.
