Big Weekend On Tap For OSU

Eric Glover-Williams

This Friday will be the biggest camp day of the year at Ohio State, and several top targets will be on hand. Derek Young takes a look at who will be on campus.

Currently on campus: Jalyn Holmes. The four-star defensive end from Virginia is a top target for the Buckeyes. I don't think Ohio State is the favorite for Holmes but I think they can be a player. The visit will tell the story, but Florida State is in command position as of now.

Notable Friday Visitors:

Friday June 21 is the next big camp date at Ohio State that will be stocked with talent from the classes of 2014 and 2015. A few have the opportunity to earn offers and a few could see their current offers confirmed. It is possible that plenty of noise could come out of the camp in Ohio State's favor.

Derrell Scott. The four star running back from Havelock, North Carolina has had Ohio State in his top three for as long as they've recruited him. He will get his first chance to check out the Buckeyes' campus on Friday. Scott probably does not need to camp to solidify his offer but it will be interesting if he decides to do so.

Elisha Shaw. The nation's fourth ranked defensive tackle will camp at Ohio State on Friday along with his two high school teammates from Tucker, Georgia. The Buckeyes have a few spots left to take along the defensive line and will look to do what they can to add Shaw to the mix.

Detric Dukes. The three-star Louisville linebacker commitment picked up an offer from the Buckeyes over the evaluation period and will camp in front of the Ohio State coaches Friday. The Tucker, Georgia native will look to perform well enough to have his offer confirmed.

Kirk Tucker. The third Tucker (GA) 2014 prospect with an offer from the Buckeyes, Tucker is in the same position as Dukes. He was offered by Ohio State over the evaluation period and a strong camp performance will be needed for the Buckeyes' staff to think about adding him.

Johnnie Dixon. The three-star wideout from Palm Beach Gardens (FL) Dwyer holds an Ohio State offer and will not camp on Friday. Dixon will just be visiting Ohio State with a teammate who also holds an offer from the Buckeyes. With two other spots left at the receiver position in Ohio State's class in all likelihood, Dixon should garner a strong look from the staff.

Shawn Boone. The three-star Florida safety picked up an offer from Ohio State over the evaluation period. It would be in Boone's best interest to bring the cleats and participate in the camp.

Damien Harris. The 2015 Berea (KY) Madison Southern running back could be among the best among all the rising juniors in the entire country. He's visited Ohio State before and will be back again to showcase his talents in front of the Buckeyes' coaches.

Andrew Dowell. The 2015 athlete from Lakewood (OH) St. Edward could be used in a variety of ways in college. The Ohio State coaches will get an up close view of each of the twins on Friday.

David Dowell. The second of the Dowell twins, David could play wide receiver or cornerback at this point. They will both be back at Ohio State on Friday.

Eric Glover-Williams. The 2015 athlete from Canton McKinley will be on campus to camp at Ohio State. He was the first prospect from Ohio in the class of 2015 to be offered by the Buckeyes.

L.J. Scott. The 2015 running back from Hubbard, Ohio should be on his way to offers from elite programs. He may be the top player in Ohio for the class of 2015.

Matt Jones. A teammate of Scott's, Jones is among the best along the offensive line for the class of 2015. The Buckeyes' coaches will get to check him out at camp on Friday.

Rashod Berry. The 2015 Lorain, Ohio defensive lineman has camped in Columbus several times over the month of July and will be back at Ohio State again to impress the Buckeyes' coaches.

Mike Williams. The 2015 defensive tackle from Alliance, Ohio will camp in front of the Ohio State staff. He's got great size and could be a top prospect in the 2015 class.

Commits: Kyle Trout, Kyle Berger, Sam Hubbard.

Notable Saturday Visitors:

Thomas Holley. The four-star defensive tackle from New York will get his first look at the Buckeyes. The Ohio State staff will try to impress Holley enough to secure an official visit for the fall.

Austin Roberts. The Buckeyes are in a good spot to land the taller wideout. Another great visit could give them the momentum they need to add the four-star wide receiver. USC has offered and may be the school that can keep him away from Ohio State.
