2007 Media Guide: Fourth-year receiver who played in eight games last year … possesses good hands and speed … will also contribute on special teams.

2006: Played in eight games as a sophomore … had two catches for 11 yards … was Ohio State’s scout team offensive player of the week in helping the team ready for a 28-6 victory vs. Penn State … contributed significantly on special teams throughout the year.

2006 Media Guide: Third-year receiver who should be in the rotation this year after two years of paying his dues with the scout team … will also help out with the various special teams units … was redshirted as a freshman and saw limited action last year, but should see more playing time in 2006.

2005 Media Guide: Speedy, sure-handed wide receiver from the same hometown and high school teammate as Buckeye Santonio Holmes … has many of Holmes’ physical attributes and has been compared favorably to his former high school teammate … was impressive in fall practice last year, but was playing at a deep position and was ultimately redshirted … has the athleticism to help out on the special teams this year and will eventually work his way into the rotation at receiver.

High School: One of Florida’s top prep wide receiver prospects after earning first-team all-state honors … hauled in 58 receptions for 1,031 yards and a state-best 17 touchdowns as a senior … caught 18 passes for 440 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior … rated as the 24th best wide receiver in the country by TheInsiders.com … rated as the 39th best overall prospect in Florida by SuperPrep … has excellent hands and speed and excels at picking up yardage after the catch … also ran track and was a member of the state champion 4×400-meter relay team as a sophomore, along with current Buckeye Santonio Holmes … has Holmes-like quickness and will be an outstanding player on the collegiate level … could make an impact this year with the special teams.

Personal: Is the son of Ned and Sophia Baldwin and Ricky Easmon … favorite food is fried shrimp … says Martin Lawrence would play him in a movie … favorite former Buckeye is Cris Carter.
