Elite 2017 LB Decommits from Baylor
Per Steve Lorenz of Wolverine247 (FREE), former Baylor commit Baron Browning (TX) has reopened his commitment. Browning is the second-ranked outside linebacker in the 2017 class and is fifth overall in the state of Texas.
Michigan may be an option for the five-star athlete. Browning's older brother played under Coach Harbaugh at Stanford and he has spoken very highly of the program in the past. Said Browning of the Wolverines back in December,
"Michigan is an offer I was waiting for," Browning told Wolverine247 at the time. "Coach Mattison actually told me they'd considered me an offered prospect for almost a year, and I didn't even realize it. The fact that my brother played for and has experience with Coach Harbaugh is great too and something that makes them more familiar automatically."
Several schools will be in contention for Browning's services, including Alabama, Arkansas, and Texas.
Take a look at Browning's junior season highlights here, per Hudl:
