Senior Advanced Camp: Day One

Roughly 250 seniors from various states attended Friday's first session of the Senior Advanced Camp at Ohio State. Included in that group was Cincinnati Colerain offensive lineman Connor Smith. Click here for more on the first day of the camp.

Roughly 250 senior prospects from across the Midwest and, truly, across the country were in attendance for Friday's first day of the Senior Advanced Camp at Ohio State.

Another 150 prospects are expected on Saturday, which will mark the final day of the 2005 Ohio State football camp.

Perhaps the top name in attendance at the camp was Cincinnati Colerain offensive lineman Connor Smith. The 6-5, 295-pound Smith was recently ranked as the state's No. 4 prospect by Ohio High and as the top offensive lineman in the Midwest by Scout.com.

Smith, whose father Joe played for the Buckeyes in the 1980s, has also attended Michigan's camp and is also considering offers from the likes of Tennessee, Oklahoma and Florida. He helped Colerain post a perfect 15-0 season and win the Division I state championship last fall.
