He picked the Buckeyes over Michigan, one of the first schools that had offered him a scholarship when he was a sophomore in the fall of 2019.
Ranked as a four-star recruit, Brown is also listed as the sixth-best wide receiver prospect and 63rd overall prospect in his class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
He is a potential fit for slot receiver. On his Hudl page, he put himself at 5-foot-11 and 191 pounds.
Brown is the first recruit to announce a commitment to Ohio State since the recruiting dead period expired at the end of May, allowing high school players to visit schools.
Director of on-campus recruiting Erin Dunston said the football program was expecting at least 51 official visitors and between 150-200 visitors this month.
Burton is ranked as the fourth-best receiver in the class, while Grayes is at No. 19.
The total 2022 commits for Ohio State rose to 13 following Brown’s announcement.
