Mishawaka (Ind.) Marian center Kirk Barron has committed to Ohio.
The 6-foot-3, 297-pound Barron chose the Bobcats over offers from Ball State and UMass.
“When I visited there, it was definitely just the mental attitude they have around the program is that we’re going to line up and maul the people in front of us as an offensive line group,” Barron said.
“What Coach (Frank) Solich said is we have an awesome recruiting class and it’s going to keep growing and growing. The players there are first to none and the coaches there are better than ever.”
Barron is ranked by 247Sports as the nation’s No. 17 center.
