Going Camping With Urban

Ohio State will host their first summer camp session under Urban Meyer this Sunday. Many top prospects are expected to be on hand as the first of several camp dates kicks off.

Urban Meyer will host his first summer camp day this Sunday at Ohio State, and several big-name prospects are expected to be on hand.

While Sunday's session is primarily for seniors, it is thought that a few top 2014 prospects will also be in attendance.

OUT OF STATE PROSPECTS:

Vonn Bell: The five-star safety is the headliner of this Sunday's event, and this will be the Rossville (GA) Ridgeville athlete's second trip to Ohio State in the past few months. Obviously, Bell does not need to camp for his offer, so this visit would seem to indicate there is serious interest on his part. This one bears watching.

Michael Hill: The Pendleton (GA) four-star defensive tackle has had Ohio State as one of his favorites for a while. With Donovan Munger not expected Sunday, Hill will have all defensive eyes on him as Ohio State looks to fill another defensive line spot.

Tyquan Lewis: The 6-foot-4, 220-pound, defensive end will be looking to earn another top offer when he performs for the Ohio State staff. The three-star talent will most likely need to show he can play in space, as well as provide a burst off the edge.

Michael Julian: Pure sleeper quarterback prospect from Hilton Head, and he is just now hitting the recruiting radar with a new head coach in place. The 6-foot-5, 185-pound, athlete has added offers from Arizona, North Carolina-Charlotte and East Carolina in the past week, and several top BCS schools are now on the trail. Will be interesting to see Julian work out and throw the football. His head coach has ties to the Ohio State program.

IN-STATE HOPEFULS:

Lovell Peterson: A recruiting enigma, and an Ohio State prospect since starting as a freshman at Huber Heights Wayne. There is probably room to add an Ohio project offensive lineman in this class, and the three-star Peterson is one of several vying for that spot. A drawback could be that he projects as a center, but he could also play defensive tackle.

Sean Welsh: Has put together an excellent offer list, and the three-star guard is a very good player. The Springboro product is 6-foot-3, 275-pounds, and would seem to fit with Meyer's offensive approach.

Kyle Meadows: The Lakota West tackle certainly looks the part at 6-foot-6, 275-pounds. The three-star prospect is a pure tackle, which could be a benefit in earning a Buckeye offer. Impressive offer list.

Sam Coverdale: The Kenston three-star offensive tackle has the size at 6-foot-7, 280-pounds. Has an impressive offer list, including Kentucky, Northwestern and West Virginia. Another tackle prospect.

Caleb Day: One of the first in-state offers from the previous staff, but Day will need to earn a shot with Meyer. An intriguing prospect because he can play both wide receiver and cornerback, with both positions of need. The Hilliard Darby athlete has a chance to get back into the game with Ohio State.

Darron Lee: The New Albany product is probably being looked at as a safety, but this fine athlete could project to a number of spots. Lee has put together a fine offer list, and will need a monster camp performance to earn a Buckeye offer.

TOP 2014 TALENTS:

DeShone Kizer: Possibly the top junior quarterback prospect in Ohio, and an impressive athlete at 6-foot-5, 205-pounds. Already holds six offers, and more will be coming to this dual threat signal-caller out of Toledo Central Catholic.

Jamarco Jones: The 6-foot-5, 285-pound, offensive tackle out of Chicago De La Salle impressed last weekend at the Nike Football Training Camp in Illinois. Offers from Illinois and Vanderbilt.

Troy Vincent: Son of the former NFL All-Pro, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound, athlete is a top-ranked cornerback. Out of North Bethesda (MD) Georgetown Prep.

D'Andre Payne: One of the top cornerback prospects in the East, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound, athlete already holds five offers, including Penn State. Out of Washington D.C. Woodson.
