The Under Armor Camp series rolls through Columbus, Ohio on Sunday and 247Sports is previewing the high-profile prospects expected for the competition.
As expected, it has a ton of Big Ten flavor
And also, as expected, that is led by the Buckeyes.
The state of Ohio has the No. 1 recruiting class of the 247Sports Composite, and nearly half of Ryan Day’s class is expected to be at the top, led by the No. 1 in Ohio, the No. 2 outside the linebacker in the state, and the No. 18 in CJ Hicks overall. Future Hicks teammates he’ll share the field with include the country’s third full-back Gabe Powers, the national top athlete in Dasan McCullough, Top247 cornerback Jyaire Brown and the Top247 offensive tackle against Tegra Tshabola.
Now maybe the unexpected. Rutgers is in 6th place in the 247Sports Recruiting rankings – good for 2nd place in the Big Ten – with Friday’s promise of the new jewel of the class in Top247 quarterback Gavin Wimsatt. Number 3 among double-threat passers nationwide, Wimsatt is making headlines over a strong quarterback group. He is one of two future Scarlet Knights, as Kwabena Asamoah is also expected as an offensive line promise.
Penn State was a quick starter this cycle as well, sitting 7th nationwide and 3rd in the league with three of their top commits on the roster of top247 recipients Kaden Saunders and Anthony Ivey and Jerry Cross.

Five members of this Cincinnati class are on the roster in a defensive tackle against Derrick Shepard, defensive ends CJ Doggette Jr. and Tyler Gillison, Eian Pugh and linebacker Jonathan Thompson race back.
Several others have already stated
Three of Kentucky’s five early appearances are on the four-star offensive against Grant Bingham, athlete Treyveon Longmire and athlete Jeremiah Caldwell.
