Midwest: Monday Camp Notes

Yesterday, we gave you some notes on weekend football camps. Today, we supply a few more tidbits along with a look at some top prospects on campuses today.

Note: Check out our weekend camp update if you missed that.

  • We mentioned a few top names at Cincinnati's camp yesterday, and we've been able to confirm a few more top performances.

    We're hearing Southfield (Mich.) CB Leviticus Payne was one of the top performers there and in fact, the Bearcats extended an offer after camp. Teammate Brandon Watkins ran one of the best times at the camp and is also on the radar.

    Kentucky receiver MeKale McKay was in attendance, and the big receiver is another who is on the Bearcat radar. An already offered prospect, Detroit King's Dennis Norfleet, was by all accounts, given the red carpet treatment.

    Detroit Crockett's James White, on the heels of a great Toledo camp, had another nice day. The first offer should be coming soon for him. Wyandotte Roosevelt's Hunter Matt reports that he had a nice day and the Bearcats are very interested. He also worked out as an H-Back. Another Michigan linebacker, Grand Blanc's Lester Liston ran in the 4.6s and reports that Cincinnati is close to offering. His teammate, safety Jordan Fields, also had a nice day and is on the Bearcat board.

    Birmingham Brother Rice's Devin Church was also named as a top performer. Two sleepers to watch from the camp are Michigan Collegiate defensive back Gabe Sanders, who reportedly went from unknown to being in Butch Jones' office, and Oak Park defensive end Chris White, a 6'3, 260-lb kid who has been a three year starter. Church tells us he'll be at the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp this week.

  • One of the top underclassmen at the camp was Huber Heights Wayne offensive lineman Lovell Peterson. Another top young lineman was Detroit Crockett's Jalen Dandridge.

  • More top prospects are expected at Cincinnati today, including Pickerington Central's duo of wide receiver Roger Lewis and safety Sebastian Smith.
  • Indiana had a successful camp, offering in-state prospects Adam Kranda and Josiah Price following the day. Both have said the Hoosiers are at the top of their lists.

    Another prospect who we hear did well was Hamilton Southeastern's Hayden Janney, a 6'4, 285-lb guard who may be on the verge of his first offer. The Hoosiers also hosted two of Illinois' top prospects, Bremen running back David Smith and Chicago Curie wide receiver Maurice Fleming.

  • Northwestern hosted four-star defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo from Centerville High. He did not camp, only visited, but reports that he had a nice time in Evanston.
  • Purdue had a good turn out for their camp. Among the prospects looking to earn an offer was Indianapolis Pike's Pierre Aka. Capable of playing a couple positions, he worked out at tight end for the Boilers and showed pass catching skills not evident on his tape. He is headed to Iowa State Wednesday and is waiting for word on the Purdue offer.

    A sleeper that was in West Lafayette was Zionsville (Ind.) offensive lineman Trevor Adkison. The 6'5, 300-lber ran a 5.3 forty and has the size and strength to play Division-1 ball. We hear Indianapolis Cathedral safety John Turner also had a good day.

    The Boilers continue camp today, with one of the top prospects hoping for an offer is North Canton (OH) Hoover QB Austin Appleby. He was at Louisville earlier in the week.

  • We gave you some notes on Wisconsin's camp yesterday. Today, we heard from Ontonagon (Mich.) defensive tackle Corbin Fuller, a 6'5, 290-lb sleeper from the Upper Penninsula who says he did well at the camp. Fuller says the Badgers told him to be patient and word of where he stands will arrive soon.

  • Fenton (Mich.) punter Kenny Allen camped at Michigan over the weekend for a kicking camp and is now on his way to Alabama for another.

  • Watch out for Lakewood St. Edward WR Quincy Jones. We're hearing he had a great Pittsburgh camp and schools are starting to find out about his talent after playing in a run heavy scheme last year. Another St. Eds player, offensive tackle Sean Connolly, a 6'6, 260-lb offensive tackle did well at Louisville's camp and may be closing in on his first offer as well.
