The Buckeyes hosted seven elite one-day camps during the month of June, seeing some of the nation’s top prospects roll through Columbus to workout for the coaching staff. was there to cover each camp from start to finish. Recruiting analysts Bill Greene, Marc Givler, and Mick Walker combined ballots to put together their list of the very best performances during the month of June, starting with the offense.

QUARTERBACKS: Nico Iamaleava (2023) and Jadyn Davis (2024)

Iamaleava earned in an offer during one of the more loaded days at camp with several other impressive class of 2023 prospects also working out that day, including Eli Holstein who was also offered. Iamaleava landed on all three ballots and showed tremendous natural talent. Davis is already starting to emerge as the Buckeyes’ top quarterback target in the 2024 class and could be an important piece of the puzzle as the Buckeyes may struggle to land an elite QB in 2023 given the pipeline that has been built up in Columbus.

RUNNING BACKS: Richard Young (2023) and Treyaun Webb (2023)

This was an easy position for the recruiting team to decide on. While different in their skill sets, both Young and Webb turned in electric workouts and came into camp with offers already in hand from the Buckeyes. Webb is more of an all-purpose back while Young is your more traditional bell cow back, but both guys were dynamic and showed why they are ranked early five-star type of talents.

WIDE RECEIVERS: Anthony Brown (2023) Carnell Tate (2023) and Brandon Inniss (2023)

Another group where there was a unanimous decision. Brown camped twice and was extremely impressive both times. The Ohio star appears close to earning an offer from the Buckeyes. Tate and Inniss entered June with an offer already in hand but still looked extremely impressive in their workouts. South Florida standouts Santana Fleming (2023) and Jojo Trader (2024) are also worth mentioning here.

TIGHT END: Theo Melin

A unanimous selection for our tight end spot, the Swedish import has a chance to be one of the most highly coveted class of 2023 tight ends in the….world? Melin has size, athleticism, soft hands and the build to turn himself into a heck of a blocker as well. The Buckeyes offered after his dazzling camp performance.

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN: Luke Montgomery (2023) Amir Herring (2023) Chase Bisontis (2023) Trevor Lauck (2023) and Lucas Simmons (2023)

Ohio State saw several impressive linemen come through and cutting this list to five was difficult. Ohioan Josh Padilla and Indiana’s Luke Burgess were also considered for the final five. Ultimately the upside that Montgomery and Simmons showed at tackle made them no-brainers for the list as both are potentially elite players down the road. Bisontis came in and validated his early lofty ranking, while Herring was probably the best center prospect to camp with the Buckeyes. Lauck was the surprise of the group, turning in a really strong performance for a player that we weren’t too familiar with coming into the month.
