Seven recruits offered a scholarship at Ohio State’s first summer camp. Here’s a rundown.

·4 min read

There have been some recruiting targets and hopefuls hanging around the Woody Hayes Athletic Center this week. That’s because Ohio State held the first of its summer camps. It was not only a chance for kids to get taught by some of the best in the business, but it gave the coaching staff a chance to evaluate some kids for the future of the program.

Evaluate is what the Buckeyes did too. In fact, Ryan Day and staff offered seven kids scholarships coming out of the first of six camps that will ultimately be held.

We thought we’d bring you up to speed on who caught the eyes of the Ohio State football coaching staff and got that coveted scholarship offer. Here’s a rundown of those prospects and where they sit in the landscape of all the recruiting types.
