Ohio State’s top remaining target in 2024, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei five-star offensive tackle Brandon Baker (6-5, 285), is set to announce his commitment on Sept. 24.

Baker will announce his college of choice on his birthday, with the announcement to be broadcast live on 247Sports’ YouTube. He will be deciding between Georgia, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon and Texas, though the Buckeyes and Longhorns are considered the finalists in his recruitment.

“Sept. 24 is my birthday, so I felt like it was a good time to announce,” Baker told 247Sports. “It has been a really fun process, but I have a good idea what I want to do and I’m ready to get this done.”

He took official visits over the summer to Georgia, Ohio State and Texas, and he has a final official visit planned to Nebraska for Sept. 16 ahead of his announcement.

“I liked all my visits but Ohio State was probably my favorite one,” Baker said. “I just really like the coaches there, Coach (Ryan) Day, and I’m very close with Coach (Justin) Frye. … He might be the OL coach I’m closest with and I really like the plan they have in place for me.”

Ohio State is hoping that Baker joins an offensive line group that includes New Palestine, Ind., four-star Ian Moore (6-5, 295), Toledo Central Catholic three-star Marc Nave (6-5, 315) and Devontae (6-5, 297) and Deontae (6-6, 280) Armstrong of Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward.
