The names sit out there ready to be plucked by the biggest schools in college football.
Players such as cornerbacks Vernon Hargreaves III (Tampa, Fla./Wharton) and Kendall Fuller (Olney, Md./Our Lady of Good Counsel) are scheduled to participate at The Opening, which runs from Thursday through Sunday at Beaverton, Ore.
All four will be on the West Coast and have offers from Ohio State. And the quartet could hear quite a bit about the Buckeyes at the by invitation only all-star camp this weekend.
They’ll hear it because six committed Buckeyes recruits will be there as well.
With Ohio State’s Friday Night Lights scheduled for the end of the month, there’s little doubt Burrows, Woodard, Elliott, Baugh, Marshall and Thompson will break out in a full-court press to bring as many recruits to Columbus as they can.
Highlights from The Opening will be shown on ESPNU with the following schedule:
July 6: 8-9:30 p.m. ET
July 7: 8-10 p.m. ET
July 8: 8-10:30 p.m. ET
