COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State kicked off its set of June camps by bringing in some of the top talent in the nation. Some had offers, some earned offers and some showed a glimpse of what to expect in the future.

While the Buckeyes’ camp season is hardly over -- there are a few skills camps on the slate before a massive June 21 camp -- there were a few standouts. With Urban Meyer on hand on the Ohio State campus, here’s what the two-time national champion learned and what BuckeyeNation found out as well.

St. Xavier breeds winners

Cincinnati St. Xavier has been to the state championships five times and won it twice. Under coach Steve Specht, the Bombers have sent numerous players on to BCS programs. One of the next in line will undoubtedly be 2015 inside linebacker Justin Hilliard. A 6-foot-2, 230-pound inside linebacker, Hilliard soared above the competition all afternoon earning high praise from fans and coaches alike. He was the first offer that went out after the camp. “My image of Ohio State definitely went up,” Hilliard said. “I’m really excited about it. This one means a lot.” Last season, Hilliard averaged seven tackles a game and had two interceptions.
