So Much for the Report About Marlon Brown to Ohio State

MEMPHIS, TN - According to a report out of Knoxville, the Buckeyes may have just landed the second best wide receiver in the nation

****EDIT AT 3:55 - Yep, HE CHOSE GEORGIA. That makes three kids in two years that have burned OSU at the 11th hour. (Josh Jenkins, Tajh Boyd and Marlon Brown).

Here's the innacurate report from earlier today:

WNML radio in Knoxville says that according to a source, the 6-foot-5 receiver Marlon Brown from Harding Academy in Memphis will sign with Ohio State this afternoon over Tennessee, Georgia and Ole Miss.

Marlon Brown told reporters yesterday that he'd have to sleep on his decision. When asked about each of the prospective teams in the mix:

On Ole Miss, he simply stated, "(Rebels quarterback) Jevan Snead."
On Tennessee: "It's Tennessee. It's Tennessee football."
On Georgia: "Coach (Mark) Richt."
On Ohio State: "Coach Jim Bollman (Jim) Tressel."

The Bucks' impressive recruiting class was ranked No. 1 by both Scout and Rivals heading into the day. Brown will formally make his decision at a 3:45 press conference. If you can't log onto Bucknuts at 3:46, that probably means this report was inaccurate.

If he can't put together complete sentences to describe the differences between his list of schools, then he MUST be a good football player!!!!! Too bad for OSU.
