FNL Preview: 2016 Possible Offers

Cleveland (OH) Benedictine wideout Justin Layne headlines the 2016 prospects that will be in attendance for Friday Night Lights in Columbus that could be offered by Ohio State.

The majority of the talent that will embark on Columbus for Ohio State'S Friday Night Lights camp will come from the 2016 class. A handful of the prospects from the class that will be in attendance already hold offers.

We take a look at a few that haven't been offered yet, but could see one afterwards.

All the possible offers that could be extended in the 2016 class come from from prospects in the midwest.

Three from Ohio come to mind in outside linebacker Jonathan Cooper of Gahanna, cornerback Tyrece Speaight of Akron, and wide receiver Justin Layne of Cleveland.

Cooper is a four-star prospect with offers already in from Illinois and Kentucky. He'll be an outside linebacker or could grow into a defensive end at the next level. He looks the part physically and will have the opportunity to impress the Ohio State coaches on Friday on the big stage.

Speaight plays his high school football at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, a school that has been very kind to the Buckeyes, recently. He jumped on the recruiting radar after excellent playoff performances his freshman year, and followed that up with a strong sophomore season. He's one to keep an eye on.

Layne is ranked in the top 50 on Scout's first rankings for the 2016 class. He was just offered by Florida and also holds other offers from Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia. He's the most likely to be offered out of the trio from Ohio in my estimation.

Ohio State will be amongst the top schools in the mix for a prospect in Kentucky once again. Center Drake Jackson has camped with Ohio State a handful of times already and will be back in Columbus once again on Friday. He's the nation's top center in the 2016 class, and has a real chance to be offered by the Buckeyes this weekend.

Two prospects from Michigan will compete at the camp as well, and one that is particularly one to keep an eye on is Detroit Cass Tech cornerback LaVert Hill. He's earned an offer at nearly every camp he's performed at. Michigan offered this week and the Buckeyes could be next in line.

Farmington (MI) wideout Desmond Fitzpatrick is no stranger to Columbus and will be back working out in front of the Ohio State staff. He's in the mix for a possible offer, but it would surprise me if the Buckeyes pulled the trigger on Fitzpatrick this early.

Fort Wayne four-star defensive end Auston Robertson will be back and I expect Ohio State to offer him at the camp, or soon after. It will be another chance to show off in front of the Buckeye staff and I predict that it will be enough. Notre Dame has already offered.
