Cleveland Glenville head coach Ted Ginn Sr. brought no fewer than 43 athletes to OSU to participate at the ongoing summer football camp.
Ginn's road weary bunch of campers arrived at about 5 p.m. Tuesday. This was the end of the first day of the second three-day all-position camp. The bus trippers allowed in time to participate in testing (cone drill, 40-yard dash, etc.) before joining the rest of the campers in position drills during the evening session.
Finally, at around 10 p.m., they boarded their bus to head home. Amazingly, the Glenville contingent was set to congregate again early Wednesday morning to head to a three-day team camp at Eastern Michigan.
But, in terms of the bus tour, it was over on Tuesday at OSU.
"This is the end of the line," Ginn declared. "This is the last deal."
The bus tour began on June 9 in Cleveland. Over the last 12 days, the group made stops at Ball State, Marshall, Cincinnati, Miami (Ohio), Bowling Green, Iowa, Notre Dame, Illinois, Purdue, Indiana, Wisconsin and finally at OSU.
In fact, the group arrived at OSU after a 13-hour trek from Madison – complete with the requisite traffic snarls in and around Chicago.
The OSU all-position camp was due to continue Wednesday and Thursday. The second senior advanced camp – with 350 prospects due in – was set for Friday.
