Some of the key Ohio prospects at the camp included:
* Cardale Jones, QB, Cleveland Glenville. There was discussion that Jones could receive an OSU scholarship offer following the camp. We have learned, however, that Jones has not been offered at this time. (Click here for an overview of Friday’s Elite 11 regional quarterback camp, including video of Jones working out at that camp.)
* Chris Wormley, DL, junior, Toledo Whitmer. Wormley is one of Ohio’s top juniors. He plays alongside OSU 2011 verbal Kenny Hayes at Whitmer. Stay tuned for a story on him.
