News and Notes from Ohio State's First Summer Camp

By John Brandon on June 8, 2014 at 4:05p

Ohio State hosted their first of several football camps this summer, attracting some of the top players from not only Ohio, but the midwest region. Along with the players were many of Ohio's college football coaches from all levels. While the weather was not entirely cooperative, the first Buckeye camp of the summer was a success. Today's camp was the one-day position camp, with a handful of other camps taking place throughout June and into July.

While today's camp didn't have the same depth or talent level of last weekend's NFTC camp, it featured multiple top prospects with Buckeye offers including Joey Burrow, Liam Eichenberg, Jonathon Cooper, Grant Schmidt and DeMario McCall. There were also several local and midwest prospects in attendance who are on the Buckeyes' radar and hope to earn offers, including David Edwards, Darrin Hall and others.

Along with the coaching staff getting to evaluate prospects, the camp gave players a chance to be coached by Urban Meyer's staff and gain exposure with other college teams around Ohio - it's really a great event for all parties.

During the camp a few names repeatedly stood out among those in attendance. One of those names was Tyler Green, 2015 safety from Hyattsville, Maryland. Green camped at Ohio State last summer and has been on the Buckeyes' radar, but today he got a chance to shine.

Anybody have an idea if they want McCall as a running back, h back, or wide receiver?

Ohio has some good speed at skill positions in 2016 between him and Hill. Hopefully we pull both before any out of state schools get in the game.

He'll probably be the next Percy Harvin, for sure.

Am I the only one who noticed that McCall actually dropped that pass?

7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing

No, saw that, as well.

I messed up and poor cell phone service prevented me from taking it down immediately.

We'll allow it this one time, Jordan.

Although there are scenes like the one up top at every camp a major program holds, it is still cool to see a shot of Meyer addressing so many eager young players.

David Edwards goes to the same high school that I did (small world) and turned what was a 1-8 football team every year I was there into a team that has made back to back quarterfinal appearances in the state series. Would love to see him in the Scarlet and Gray - at any position!
