COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Although the Ohio State coaches could not be at the camp, Sunday’s Nike Football Training Camp at Ohio State’s football complex looked more like a Buckeyes practice with all the talent strewn across two practice fields. Recruiting Nation had to make some tough decisions in picking out the top performances of the day, but these 10 prospects made the strongest case to make the list.

Coming into the event, Patterson was a name that was not in the directory of a lot of those in recruiting circles. He changed that with his performance Sunday, which landed him the offensive line MVP honor. Line coach Todd Huber saw a raw Patterson on film -- it’s only Patterson’s second year playing football -- but was thoroughly impressed and believes he will be a very good guard in college.
“I was coming to show I’m just as good as some of the top guys in the country even though I’m new to football,” said Patterson, who has four Big Ten offers. “… I think I did good and that I can either be a guard or tackle.”
