The big name at the Ohio State Senior Advanced Camp Saturday was Gainesville, Ga., offensive lineman Nick Claytor. The 6-foot-6 and 312-pounder was the only one to attend the camp that had already been offered a scholarship by the Buckeyes.
Claytor has family in Toledo and began by travelling to the Glass City back on May 19. He has been in Ohio since.
"I went down to Ohio State's camp from Toledo," he said. "Then I went back to Toledo on Saturday night.

"My grandmother, my dad, my aunts and uncles, they all live in Toledo. My mom, my brother, and me are the only ones that live in Georgia. When I go up to Toledo everybody talks about me going to Ohio State."
That certainly could happen.
"It was a great experience," Claytor said of the Ohio State football camp. "It was good to meet some players who might be going there. And I met some current players. I got to talk with coach (Jim) Tressel. And I talked to coach (Paul) Haynes and coach (Luke) Fickell.
"They are really precise in everything they do. They showed me around the facilities. Afterwards I met with coach Tressel on the field."
Claytor would not go as far as to say Ohio State is at the top of his list.
"Ohio State, Auburn, Georgia Tech, LSU, Florida State and Notre Dame are all in there," he said. "All of them except Notre Dame have offered.
"I'm going to Auburn's camp June 10. And I'll probably go to Florida State's camp and I'll probably visit Georgia Tech."
Claytor plans to take at least some of his official visits.
"I want to go up to Ohio State for the Ohio State-Michigan game," he said. "I probably won't pick a college till sometime during the season or after it."
