On Sunday the Buckeyes had a junior day with the Ohio State-Michigan
basketball game as the back drop. One of the top juniors in Ohio was in
attendance, running back Parris Campbell Jr. (Akron, Ohio/St.
Vincent-St. Mary), and he walked away with an Ohio State scholarship
offer.

“Parris
picked up the offer on Sunday on an unofficial visit down there,” St.
Vincent-St. Mary Athletic Director Andy Jalwan said. “I think he is
ecstatic about it.”

The 6-foot-0 and 180-pound Campbell led St. Vincent-St. Mary to a
13-2 record and a Division III State Championship this past season.

Campbell rushed for 1,353 yards and 28 touchdowns and had 13 pass receptions.

“He projects as a running back or wide receiver in college,”
Jalwan said. “Ohio State told him he projects as a running back. He
prefers running back.”

The offer from Ohio State was Campbell’s first.
