Already known as one of the biggest recruiting events at Ohio State, Friday Night Lights just got a little bit more polarizing. The annual camp held in late July every year since Urban Meyer has been at the helm for the Buckeyes will be hosting a ridiculous amount of talented recruits and prospects from all over the country. With all of the excitement generally building for the open event, recruits are bound to feel the urge to pull the trigger on committing to Ohio State.
After all, the Buckeyes got several commitments last year at Friday Night Lights. First came the unexpected commitment from Josh Moore, followed later that night by Joshua Alabi. Plenty of recruits will receive offers from the staff at the camp as well. The event will also be hosting some of the top receivers in both the class of 2016 and class of 2017.
As reported by 247Sports, '17 wide receiver Jaylen Harris will be in attendance for Friday Night Lights in late July. The 6'5, 210-pound wideout holds seven offers from Ohio State, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia, and is receiving interest from Alabama and Oregon. The Buckeyes offered Harris earlier this month. Right now, all signs on the 247Sports Crystal Ball have Harris ending up with Ohio State with four predictions slotted in for the Buckeyes.
Harris will be joining the likes of '17 wide receiver Emmanuel Greene and '17 wide receiver Trevon Grimes. Grimes is a 6'3, 180-pound receiver that runs a 4.48 in the 40-yard dash, and is rated as a five-star by the 247Sports Composite. Ranked as the nation's seventh-best recruit at any position, Grimes is also ranked as the best receiver on the board, and second-best prospect from the state of Florida. Grimes actually received his offer at the last Friday Night Lights camp, and is a favorite among the 247Sports Crystal Ball experts to land with the Buckeyes. All 21 predictions favor Ohio State.
The Buckeyes also sit pretty with Greene, a 5'10, 171-pound receiver that rates as a four-star under the 247Sports Composite. Ranked as the 12th best wide receiver in the class, Greene is also the 10th best prospect at any position from the state of Florida. Greene seems to be yet another receiver that Ohio State has influenced quite a bit, with 91 percent of the 11 predictions picking Ohio State over Florida State.

Not to be outdone, '16 wide receiver Trey Fullwood announced on Twitter that both he and '17 wide receiver Daquon Green would be attending Friday Night Lights next month as well. Fullwood stands at 6'1, 190-pounds and is rated as a three-star under the 247Sports Composite. He holds offers from Buffalo, Cincinnati, N.C. State, South Florida, Toledo, Central Florida, and is receiving interest from Florida State.
Green, meanwhile, checks in at 6'1, 185-pounds and has been clocked at a 4.60 in the 40-yard dash. A four-star under the 247Sports Composite, Green ranks as the 33rd best wide receiver in the country and 26th best prospect overall from the state of Florida.
