Thursday Jun 21, 2018 at 6:50 PM Jun 21, 2018 at 6:50 PM. Ohio State’s “Friday Night Lights” skills camp for aspiring college football players at Ohio Stadium has been moved up a month compared with the previous six years because of a new crunch in the July recruiting calendar, but running back Darvon Hubbard said the attraction is the same.
“We’re in the ‘Horseshoe,’ it feels like it’s a Saturday night,” Hubbard said.
He plans to show up Friday night for more than the ambience, though.
A four-star 2020 prospect who is an Ohio native now living in Scottsdale, Arizona, he already has scholarship offers from Alabama, Arizona and Auburn, and that’s just among the A’s on his list.
Hubbard has yet to receive one from Ohio State, although his Chaparral High School quarterback and fellow 2020 prospect Jack Miller has.
The Buckeyes have yet to gain a commitment from a QB for the ’19 cycle, and Maurer has yet to receive an offer from Ohio State, although he holds one from at least 19 other schools, including Tennessee.
Maurer probably will be sharing time in the throwing lane Friday with two quarterbacks from the 2020 cycle who have already received offers from the Buckeyes: Miller and C.J. Dixon of Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia.
“With ‘Friday night lights’ having to be held earlier, I think Urban Meyer and his staff have played this just right,” Kurelic said.
