DUBLIN, Ohio -- The Rivals Camp Series Presented by Under Armour made its first of two Midwest stops on Saturday at Dublin Coffman High School, and as expected, there were plenty of prospects who will be headed to big-time college programs when they are done with their high school careers.
Darrin Kirkland Jr. of Indianapolis Lawrence Central came away with the Linebacker Most Valuable Player award in a very competitive group that included four-stars Nick Conner and Josh Smith, though Smith was slowed a bit by injury. Recent Kentucky commit and four-star LB Eli Brown was at the camp but did not participate due to injury.
Another Indianapolis native walked away with the Quarterback MVP award on a day that started a bit wet but ended with ideal weather. Tommy Stevens of Indianapolis Decatur Central was the top passer on the day. He holds four Big Ten offers (Michigan State, Iowa, Indiana, Nebraska) and more could be on the way.
At running back, Class of 2016 Miles Sanders earned MVP honors.
Two invitations to the prestigious Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge were handed out. Michigan commit defensive back Tyree Kinnel and offensive lineman Sterling Jenkins, who is down to Penn State and Ohio State, will compete in Baltimore in early June.
The Rivals Camp Series will head across the border to Michigan on Sunday, where athletes will compete at Saline High School just outside of Detroit. Stay tuned to Rivals.com for complete coverage of that event, as well as more analysis from RCS Columbus in the coming days.
