Ohio State might have come up short Saturday night on the field against USC, but the Buckeyes will not come out of the weekend empty handed. Four-star prospect Corey Brown from Pennsylvania was on hand and has decided to join the Buckeyes next season.

Four-star wide receiver prospect Corey Brown has issued a verbal commitment to Ohio State.

Responding to a text message asking if he had committed to the Buckeyes sent by BuckeyeSports.com, Brown said, "Yea I did."

The 5-11, 180-pound athlete was in attendance for OSU's home game against USC. He had previously narrowed his list to five schools: OSU, Miami (Fla.), Pittsburgh, Rutgers and West Virginia.

Scout.com ranks the standout from Springfield (Pa.) Cardinal O'Hara as the No. 19 wide receiver in the country and the No. 94 prospect in the country regardless of position.

Injuries limited him to three games as a junior but he recorded around 600 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. He has been timed at 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. The Buckeyes have been recruiting him as an athlete. Wide receivers coach Darrell Hazell was his primary recruiter for OSU.

He will become the second player named Corey Brown on the OSU roster, joining the Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway defensive back in Columbus.

Check back with BuckeyeSports.com later for more on Brown's decision.
