OSU Camp: Friday Morning Camp Notes

It was Day-Two for the underclassmen at Ohio State, and there were several big names showing well. Who stood out in one-on-ones Friday morning? Scout was there.

QUARTERBACK PLAN? Dareian Watkins and Caleb Henderson were the two best today, and while Watkins has always been looked at as a wide receiver, he was good this morning throwing the football. I could see them taking both, Henderson as the pure quarterback and Watkins as a quarterback/wide receiver/athlete. Both were extremely impressive and fit Urban Meyer's mold like a glove. Lakota West athlete Tyler Jones was good once again, and also fits the Watkins role as a quarterback/athlete.

BEST IN CLASS: Detroit Cass Tech athlete Damon Webb was the best individual talent we saw the past two days, and he flat locked people up at cornerback. Odds on a Buckeye offer coming in a few hours? Bank it.

OUT OF STATE WIDEOUTS: Jordan Morgan was an unknown talent out of Oregon, but he is getting known after starring both days. He has good size, gets open on everyone and catches everything in sight. Johnathan Lloyd holds several offers, including Ohio State, and it was easy to see why. He was very similar to Morgan in talent.

TWO ON THE LINE: Jimmy Byrne is starting to attract offers and showed great feet in one-on-one drills, and we will look to see more in the afternoon. Skylar Hartley just mauled people back to back days, and looks like a Division-I guard. He approached the drills like the Super Bowl, and played to the echo of the whistle. Maybe a tad past the echo.

HERE, BUT NOT WORKING OUT: Cass Tech offensive tackle Dennis Finley certainly looks the part, and he is getting the royal treatment from the staff. He looks exactly like Kyle Dodson from the same stage of development. He is a late developer, and could be something in time. This one is coming down to a Michigan State vs. Ohio State battle.

ONE TO WATCH: Billy Hirschfeld is an under-the-radar prospect who holds no offers, which is surprising. He is a defensive end from Wisconsin, and he looked good as a strong-side defensive end talent.

SLEEPER LINEBACKER PROSPECT: Cass Tech athlete Gary Hosey has no offers, but that should change soon. Not sure that he is Ohio State material, but he can play Division-I football. He was excellent in coverage.
