Camp Report - Ginn, Freeman, Hoyer

Quotes from Ted Ginn, Marcus Freeman, Brian Hoyer on camp...

Another top DB in attendance was Ted Ginn Jr.

"I'm back," Ginn said. "I had a little hip-pointer, but I'm feeling good now. I was able to work out and run around with no pain."

What can a talented player like Ginn learn from just a one-day camp?

"Even though it's only one day, you can learn a lot of stuff," he said. "Techniques, how to cover a lot of different routes, bump and run, coaches' points, there's a lot of things you can learn in one day."

Ginn likes competing against the big receivers. He thinks it's a good way to measure his game.

"Yeah, it's fun going up against these guys," Ginn said. "I like going against the height, the big receivers. They say I am a big corner (6-0, 174), so I want to match up with big receivers. I think it's good that there are some big corners and receivers out here."

What schools are Ginn considering?

"Ohio State, Pitt, Michigan, Miami, Iowa and Wisconsin."

What stands out about OSU?

"It's a great place to be. It's a fun town, I love the school, coaches, players… it's a good spot to be."

What was Ginn's time in the 40?

"I didn't run today because of my hip, but my fastest is a 4.25."

Can fans expect a decision fairly soon, or is Ginn going to keep them waiting?

"I'm probably going to wait it on out," he said. "But I'm probably 50/50 on Ohio State right now."

Wayne linebacker Marcus Freeman is also one of the top prospects in the state. The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder enjoys making the one hour trip to Columbus.

"Yeah, it's a nice camp, good facilities," Freeman said. "I've been up here before and met the coaches and stuff. I always like being up here."

Like we asked Ginn, what can one of the state's best players take away from just a one-day camp?

"Oh, plenty," Freeman said. "Going through all the drills and spending time with your position coach helps out a lot. You learn how to make yourself a better player. There are so many little things you can pick up."

Freeman and the rest of the linebackers were going up against the running backs today.

"I know some of them, but not all of them," he said of the RBs. "It's a good chance to meet some of these guys from around the state and go up against them."

What are Freeman's goals for his senior season at Wayne?

"I just want to go out there and make sure I give 100 percent on each play and just make sure we have the best year we can as a team. I'm really not worried about the individual awards, but as a team I want to be able to do pretty good there."

Freeman is not one of these players that will have to bulk up to play in college.

"I want to stay right around 240. If I can get bigger, but still keep my speed, that is great. I ran a 4.4 today and I want to make sure I keep all my speed or get faster."

Will Freeman attend any more camps this summer?

"I might go up to Notre Dame on Monday, but I'm not sure. Either this will be my last camp, or Notre Dame's will."
The Buckeyes have already offered Freeman a scholarship. What schools are at the top of his list?

Oh I like Ohio State, definitely," he said. "I like Michigan, I like Oklahoma and Miami and I like Notre Dame. If I had to pick a top five right now, that would be it."

When can fans expect a decision?

"After I take my five official visits after the season, I'll sit down with my family and make my decision."

Could that take all the way until signing day?

"Oh, definitely before signing day," Freeman said. "I am trying to come to college early, so I'll make up my mind before signing day."

Charles Babb interviewed standout quarterback Brian Hoyer from St. Ignatius. Here is a quick re-cap of what he had to say.

Hoyer said the Ohio State camp was the one camp he was looking forward to because the Buckeyes have not offered him a scholarship yet.

Hoyer admitted that some of his passes weren't very accurate today. He said he was tight from lifting on Wednesday. He also mentioned that it is difficult to get the timing down with new receivers.

Hoyer is "definitely" hoping to get an offer from the Buckeyes. Schools that have already offered him include: Michigan State, South Carolina, Maryland, Wake Forest, Cincinnati and Bowling Green.

The quarterback enjoys being at the OSU camp because he can throw the ball around and show what he can do.

Hoyer thinks that St. Ignatius will be "pretty good" this season. He said it has a lot of quality seniors coming back to the lineup. He also mentioned that he is looking forward to playing against Warren Harding, a team that defeated St. Ignatius by a touchdown last year. He said Harding will be a real good team and it should be a good game.

Hoyer has already been to camps at South Carolina, Pitt and Michigan. He will also be attending the Michigan State camp and said that will be his last one.
