Marcus Baugh stood out all week at the Under Armour practices, as the athletic tight end showed off his talents. The Ohio State commit is anxious to get started on his career at the next level.

Riverside (CA) North tight end Marcus Baugh has been one of the more impressive athletes in action this week at the Under Armour practices in Orlando.

Baugh, 6-foot-4, 230-pounds, who committed to Ohio State last summer, is ranked as a four-star prospect on FoxSportsNext.

"It's been great being out here with all these great players," Baugh stated. "The experience is good and it helps prepare me for what I'm going to find at Ohio State. For me, it's all business on the field, but having fun with the guys off the field."

"I will be taking my official visit on January 11, and I was at Ohio State last summer on an unofficial visit," he added. "I love everything about Ohio State, and I have a cousin in school there right now. He told me how great it is there, and I'm excited to get there."

His talents have been evident all week in Orlando, as Baugh has shown both the ability to catch the football, and be an effective run blocker.

"I'm very athletic, and I try to use that in the passing game," he explained. "I still need to get faster and stronger to become the type of player I want to be. I'm a player that gives 100% on every play."

"Coach (Urban) Meyer played a big part in my decision, and in my eyes he's a tight end guru," he continued. "Knowing he's going to use me as Aaron Hernandez means an awful lot to me, and I think I can help the team right off the bat. I love Ohio State and I can't wait to get there and become a part of the team."
