Browning Enjoys OSU Visit

Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Bryant Browning made an official visit to Ohio State over the weekend, but is in no hurry to make a decision. He will visit at least two more schools before making his final choice. We caught up with Browning for the latest.

Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Bryant Browning took an official visit to Ohio State over the weekend and came away impressed.

"It went good. I liked it a lot," Browning said. "I got to see more of the campus and got to meet more individually with the coaches."

Browning has a scholarship offer on the table from the Buckeyes.

"Yes, they offered a while back," he said.

Ohio State was Browning's first official visit. He plans on visiting at least two or three other schools.

"I'm going to visit Northwestern (Jan. 6) and Tennessee," Browning said. "I might go down to Tennessee this weekend, or I might wait until Jan. 13. I'm probably going to try and get up to Wisconsin as well."

Browning is not in a hurry to make a decision. He says he has a good feeling, but wants to wait and make sure.

"Yeah, I probably want to wait it out and go on some more visits before I make my decision," he said. "I just want to see what's out there and make the best decision for myself."

Browning says he is serious about academics. He plans on majoring in either business or engineering.

"On the visit this weekend, I got to meet with some of the academic advisors at Ohio State and how they help you go along with college and help you get a degree," Browning said. "This isn't just for football; this is also about life after football."

Browning believes that he will be able to get through OSU admissions.

"My GPA is a 4.1, and on the ACT I got a 17," he said. "I think I'm OK."

The 6-4, 320-pound Browning, ranked as the No. 59 offensive lineman in the country by, says he could play center, guard or tackle in college.

"When I talked to (OSU offensive line coach Jim) Bollman this weekend, he told me it's really up to me which position I want to play," Browning said. "He thinks I can play all the positions and he says it's up to me to make a decision based on what I feel. I play the whole O-line. I can play all the positions, so it really doesn't matter to me."

Browning could even play center?

"Yeah, I played some center for my high school team," he said.

Browning was hosted by OSU tight end Brandon Smith on his visit.

"He's nice," Browning said. "He showed me around the campus and around the dorms and got me around other players. He just showed me how it is and told me how great the college is and how I should join him there."

Browning was accompanied by his grandmother on the visit.

"I went down with her and we had an individual meeting with (OSU head coach Jim) Tressel," Browning said. "He was just basically filling my grandmother in and how it would work if I decide to go there."
