Some of The Dream '14 are still enjoying their last few games on the prep level. Just like they have done all season long, Parris Campbell, Dante Booker and Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary destroyed the opposition. The Irish ran away with an easy 40-7 playoff victory over 2015 Ohio State targets, offensive tackle Matt Jones, running back LJ Scott and Hubbard on Friday evening. The speedy Campbell continued his stellar senior campaign by rushing the ball 19 times on the night for 207 yards and three scores, including one touchdown on a nearly 80 yard run.
The future OSU linebacker, Booker, led the the furious Irish defense all night long. The four star prospect finished the ball game with seven tackles, stopping the Hubbard offense in the backfield twice. Next Friday The Irish will continue their state title hopes by taking on Columbus power, Marion-Franklin in the Ohio Division III State Semifinal.

The Buckeyes had a decent amount of recruits on official and unofficial visits over the weekend including offensive linemen Chad Mavety, Sterling Jenkins, Larry Wells and wide outs Trevion Thompson, Van Jefferson who are just a few of the 2014 and 2015 prospects on hand in the 'Shoe for Saturdays win over the Hoosiers of Indiana.

According to reports, Mavety, a 6-6 320 pound, JUCO offensive tackle will make his college plans known in the next couple of weeks. The Buckeyes, Florida State, Alabama and a long list of others have offered Chad but OSU and FSU seem to be front runners to land the four star prospect.

Another one of the many talented prospects on campus was class of 2015 defensive end Darius Fullwood. Even after only playing in three games this season after breaking his foot, Fullwood, a 6-4 240 pound Washington, DC native and Good Counsel junior, currently holds scholarship offers from the likes of Penn State, Kentucky, North Carolina State and Virginia Tech but had nothing but great things to say about his trip to Columbus.
"The visit went great." Fullwood told Land-Grant Holy Land. "The environment was great. The fans showed a lot of love, especially since it was Senior Day. I got a chance to see the facilities and they were amazing. I talked with a lot of the coaches. What stood out to me is that they said everything truthfully and keep it real. The best part was too sit in the coaches meeting before the game and to see Coach Meyer talk to the players." He added.
OSU might have not offered Darius just yet, but he is definitely interested in the Buckeyes. "Although I'm not offered by them, I still think I'd fit in well at that school." He said. " To have Ohio State as an option would be amazing. I love the feel I get there and to be coached by the best coach in football (Urban Meyer) would be amazing."
Fullwood, a three star recruit, is the 510th prospect and the 19th weak side defensive end in the entire class of 2015 according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. To get a feel for what Darius could bring to the Buckeyes defense, check out these highlights of him in action:
