Browning Gives The Latest

Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Bryant Browning is visiting Tennessee this weekend and could make a decision in the near future. Browning is deciding between Ohio State, Michigan State, Northwestern and Tennessee. We caught up with him for the latest.

Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Bryant Browning was on his official visit to Tennessee when caught up with him Sunday.

"It's all right. It's going all right," Browning said of Tennessee. "It's a nice place. They have good facilities; good people. It's cool. Same old stuff, you know."

The Volunteers have offered him a scholarship, but they are not pressuring him to make a decision.

"Uh, not really," Browning said. "They're just basically telling me about the place and asking me questions and seeing what I like. They're hoping I make the choice to come there, I guess."

Browning previously visited Ohio State, Michigan State and Northwestern. He might be finished taking visits when he returns from Tennessee.

"I've got Indiana set up for next weekend, but I don't know if I'm going to go to Indiana," he said.

Overall, Browning seems to be enjoying the recruiting process.

"It's kind of fun getting to meet a lot of people and visiting schools and the coaches trying to get you to come to their school," he said. "It's been very interesting."

Browning was asked for his timetable in making a decision.

"Well, I'm getting pretty close," he said. "I just want to think about everything and make the best choice. I'll probably talk to family and think about it and just pick the best place for me."

Could he wait until signing day to announce?

"I don't know. I'm going to try and do before signing day," he said.

Glenville defensive end Rob Rose has already committed to Ohio State, and Glenville wide receiver Ray Small is expected to follow. Most feel Browning will make it three Tarblooders in OSU's 2006 recruiting class, but he's keeping his poker face on for now.

"I'm still undecided; trying to make the best choice for my future," Browning said.

Browning (6-4, 330, 5.5) is ranked as the 60th-best offensive lineman in the country by, and the No. 18 overall prospect in the state by Ohio High.

He is an honors student and full academic qualifier.
