Another Buckeye has been added to the Senior Bowl roster.
The Senior Bowl announced Thursday that Ohio State linebacker Baron Browning had accepted his invitation to the 2021 Senior Bowl, following Tuf Borland, Trey Sermon and Jonathon Cooper to become the fourth Buckeye on the roster.

A true senior, Browning has started all four of Ohio State's games this season at strongside linebacker after rotating with Borland at middle linebacker in previous years. He has 19 total tackles, one tackle for loss and one pass breakup in Ohio State's first four games.
While the NCAA's decision to grant all players an additional year of eligibility opened the door for Browning to return for a fifth year at Ohio State if he wanted to, his acceptance of a Senior Bowl invitation indicates that he plans to move on to the NFL after this season.
As a 6-foot-3, 240-pound linebacker who was a five-star recruit out of high school and who's shown the ability to make plays all over the field, Browning should get plenty of attention from NFL scouts in Mobile.
