You weren't the only one who spent a little time traveling over the holiday weekend. Following in the footsteps of quite a few former and current Buckeye stars, a majority of the class of 2015 verbal commits hit the road on Sunday to check into one of the many High School All-American games.

Having the chance to play in one of these annual events is something every high school recruit dreams about.
