Baning, 6-foot-3, 330-pounds, is a run-stopper extraordinaire, using his size and bulk in the middle of the defensive line.
"The Ohio State camp was fun and I learned a lot from the coaches," Baning stated. "I had fun with the one-on-one's and I got a lot better as a player. I got to speak with Coach (Larry) Johnson again, and he's a good guy."
With seven offers, Baning has hit the recruiting radar, but he is looking for more.
"I have offers from a lot of smaller schools, with Syracuse being my biggest offer," he explained. "I plan on taking a visit to Syracuse soon, and I'm very interested in checking them out. I visited Toledo while we were in Ohio, and I like them a lot."
"I'm thinking of making my commitment in the last week of July," he added. "If I start getting bigger offers I could extend it more, and I would wait all the way to National Signing Day if I needed to."
EVALUATION: Although carrying too much weight right now, Baning showed the power and bulk college coaches are looking for. He battled hard through one-on-one's and showed he has the talent to play at the next level.
