Ohio State has missed out on its top remaining target in the 2024 class.

Five-star offensive tackle Brandon Baker committed to Texas on Sunday evening, committing to the Longhorns on his birthday.

The Buckeyes were locked in a battle with Texas for Baker through the last few months. The California product publicly said Ohio State was his favorite official visit he took in June, but the Buckeyes ultimately came up short of landing him.

With Baker off the board, fellow offensive lineman Jordan Seaton now becomes Ohio State’s top remaining target in the 2024 class. Seaton is expected to take an official visit to Columbus sometime this fall. 

Ohio State currently has four offensive linemen committed in the 2024 class: In-state prospects Devontae and Deontae Armstrong and Marc Nave and Indiana four-star offensive tackle Ian Moore. But Justin Frye would still like to add one more premier offensive lineman in the class, and landing Seaton might now be the last chance for Ohio State to do so.
