Ohio State Has Weekend Camp

The Ohio State summer camp has turned into quite an annual event, and the first event of the season takes place this Sunday. Who is expected to work out in Columbus?

COMMITS:

Dylan Thompson: The three-star defensive lineman from Illinois put together a strong performance in Columbus last weekend and will be back for the opportunity to work under assistant Mike Vrabel.

Parris Campbell: The four-star running back of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School will camp at Ohio State on Sunday. It was his choice to work out as a wide receiver at the Nike camp and he's unsure of what position group he will work with this weekend.

Dante Booker: The Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary four-star linebacker will be back in Columbus to work with position coach Luke Fickell.

Sam Hubbard: The four-star linebacker from Cincinnati will work out at Ohio State on Sunday and it'll be interesting to see what the Buckeyes' staff decides to do with the versatile Moeller product.

Kyle Trout: The Lancaster offensive tackle held his own in the one on ones last weekend and will work under Ohio State assistant Ed Warinner on Sunday.

TARGETS:

Stephen Collier: Three-star quarterback. Lee County (Leesburg, GA). The rising prospect from Georgia earned an invite to the Elite 11 finals and will get his chance to impress the Buckeyes' staff this weekend.

Terry McLaurin: Three-star wide receiver. Cathedral (Indianapolis, IN). McLaurin is another prospect on Ohio State's radar that could receive a boost in the rankings. He recently earned the top SPARQ score at a Nike camp and is one of a few prospects that could earn an offer with a strong performance in front of the staff in Columbus.

Jonathan Hilliman: Three-star running back. St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, NJ). The talented athlete from New Jersey does not plan to camp but it may be in his best interest to do so.

DeAndre Goolsby: Three-star tight end. (Derby, KS). Goolsby received an offer from Ohio State about a month ago and will be on campus this weekend. It is unclear if he intends to camp but it would be wise to on his part.

Poona Ford: Four-star defensive tackle. (Hilton Head, SC). Ford has been on the Buckeyes' radar for a while now and will camp at Ohio State this weekend. He has the Buckeyes in his top three and the staff could soar to the top if everything clicks on the trip.

Two 2015 prospects are also expected to camp in front of the Ohio State staff on Sunday in Cincinnati (OH) Winton Woods lineman George Brown Jr. and Huber Heights (OH) Wayne defensive back Tyree Kinnel.

Other Notable Confirmed Visitors in June:

Jacques Patrick: The Orlando, Florida native will be amongst the top running backs in the country for the class of 2015. He holds several offers, including one from Ohio State, and will visit the Buckeyes' campus June 13 on a Midwest swing that includes stops at Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame.

Chad Mavety: The junior college offensive tackle has an offer from Ohio State and stays in regular contact with the Buckeyes' staff. He's a prospect the Buckeyes can land and he'll be on campus June 15.

Zack Darlington: The Apopka, Florida quarterback is expected to be on the Ohio State campus June 18. He was offered by the Buckeyes after Tom Herman visited his spring practice to see him throw.

Jalyn Holmes: The four-star defensive end from Virginia announced a top three just over a week ago that consisted of Florida State, Ohio State, and Clemson. The Buckeyes will host Holmes on June 19.

Derrell Scott: The Havelock, North Carolina running back has Ohio State amongst his top three schools for a long time. He is set to visit the Buckeyes' staff June 21.

Mattrell McGraw: The Louisiana safety has an Ohio State offer and will be on campus June 21. The Buckeyes have made his top group of eight schools.

Cortez McDowell: The four-star safety from Locust Grove, Georgia repeatedly said he intended to take a trip to Columbus to check out the Buckeyes. He has the visit scheduled for June 28.

Two other top prospects on Ohio State's radar should be in Columbus to camp for the Buckeyes' staff this month as well in Fort Lauderdale, Florida safety Quincy Wilson and Brentwood Academy (TN) defensive lineman Derek Barnett. The visit dates have yet to be confirmed but it is likely both will be on Ohio State's campus for a one-day camp on June 9 or June 21.
