Will Buckeyes Add Two Next Week?

Ohio State concluded their three-day summer camp Saturday. It appears entirely possible that the Buckeyes could be adding two players to their 2013 recruiting class before too long. Who put themselves into the mix Saturday?

The three-day camp marathon has ended at Ohio State, although two players are basically still awaiting to hear how well they performed in the eyes of the Buckeye coaching staff.

New Albany (OH) athlete Darron Lee and Hollywood Chaminade Madonna cornerback Adrian Baker were both outstanding Saturday, taking numerous reps in the afternoon heat, and performing at a high level. Both players are ranked as three-star prospects.

Both players were told by Ohio State that they would learn if an offer was forthcoming this coming Monday. Should either, or both, land Ohio State offers, it's hard to envision either player not accepting the offer shortly thereafter.

"It's definitely something I've wanted all my life," Lee told Scout.com. "I think I've done everything I could have, to receive an offer from here. If they offer Monday, there's a chance I could take it on the spot. There's a pretty good chance."

Baker was part of a group from his high school team that was at Ohio State for camp. Chaminade-Madonna is coached by former Ohio high school coach Tim Tyrrell. The group featured 12 players, and nearly half landed offers from the various programs represented at the camp.

"Baker really loves it here," Tyrell stated. "Should he get the offer, it would rank very high on his list. I can tell you that."

The player also confirmed that Ohio State definitely made an impression on him, and he is looking forward to landing the offer.

"I loved everything about Ohio State," Baker stated. "I really want that offer, and if I get it, I'm going to think about taking it very strongly."

As a cornerback known primarily for his coverage ability, Baker fits a needs for Ohio State in their 2013 recruiting class. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound, athlete holds offers from Clemson, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and others.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound, Lee could fill a number of spots for Ohio State, but he is being primarily recruited as a linebacker. When Ohio State broke down into position groups, Lee went with the linebackers and was seen receiving individual instruction from position coach Luke Fickell.

Scout.com will continue to track both players over the next 48 hours, and update the status of both prospects.
