Today the Buckeyes held a skills camp and a camp for football's "big men."
After the morning session, Ohio State coach Ryan Day told campers to live in the moment, remember why they play the sport, and embrace the lessons the sport teaches like sacrifice, perseverance, and commitment.
Do that, he told them, and they have a chance to live the dream of playing in the Shoe and facing "the team up north."

Other notes from today's camp:
- A lot of coaches from other schools were there to assist and scout the campers. That included Rutgers head man Chris Ash and Iowa State defensive coordinator Jon Heacock. Overall, more than 30 different colleges were represented.
- Linebacker and 2021 in-state (Ironton High School) offer Reid Carrico was at camp, but unable to play, because he was under the weather. Other notables on the list of those who attended today: Pickerington North's Jack Sawyer--who is an OSU commit for the class of 2021, Solon's Najee Story, and tight end Luke Lachey (son of Buckeye great Jim Lachey). Finally, as seen below, Darrion Henry and Paris Johnson, Jr. were in Columbus today.
AJ Kirk received a Buckeye offer.
The safety was extended the offer by Day himself, immediately after making a big play. "We need some talent like that at our program," Kirk said Day told him.
Kirk is the younger brother of former Buckeye All-American Mike Doss.
