Washington added another Buckeye today. 

Former Ohio State tight end Marcus Baugh signed with Washington, joining Dwayne Haskins, Terry McLaurin, who will enter their second season in the NFL, and potentially Chase Young (Washington holds No. 2 pick in 2020 NFL Draft. Haskins took to Twitter to show his support of the move. 

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end hauled in 55 receptions for 607 yards and eight touchdowns during his Ohio State career (2014-17). 

Baugh’s senior season was the highlight of his time in scarlet and gray, when he posted 28 catches for 304 yards and five touchdowns. The defining moment of Baugh’s Buckeye tenure came in a comeback win against Penn State, in which he snagged the game-winning touchdown from J.T. Barrett. 

With former Washington tight end Vernon Davis retiring and the team releasing Jordan Reed, the position is wide open. Baugh will compete with presumed starter Jeremy Sprinkle in his fourth season out of Arkansas, Hale Hentges in his second year out of Alabama, and Caleb Wilson in his second year out of UCLA, for a roster spot and playing time.
