A number of top flight prospects are set to invade the "Buckeye State" this weekend to participate in the final New Level/Badger Sports passing tournament that will be held at the Ohio State University. Check out some of the talents who have RSVPed.

Brandon Hill
(QB, 6-5/210, Audubon, N.J.)
Hill has a great frame and already holds a Rutgers offer. Could a strong performance lead to more?
Jeremy Jackson 
(WR, 6-3/195, Huron, Mich.)
Jackson is one of the elite receivers in the Midwest. He has an abundance of offers, but Michigan has already secured his verbal commitment.
Dior Mathis 
(CB, 5-9/170, Cass Tech, Mich.)
Mathis was one of the top performers at the U.S. Army Combine. Florida, Michigan, Florida State, Iowa, Miami, Michigan State, Oregon, Tennessee have already offered.
Tyler Gabbert 
(QB, 6-0/175, Parkway West, Mo.)
The younger brother of 2008 All-American Blaine Gabbert, who is now at Missouri. Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska have offered Tyler.

WR K. Prater
Kyle Prater
(WR, 6-5/195, Proviso West, Ill.)
Prater may be the most highly recruited player at the event as he is holding offers from Penn State, Michigan, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Illinois, Stanford, Arkansas, Arizona, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana, Iowa and California.
Marquise Hill 
(WR, 6-0/165, Trinity Catholic, Mo.)
Marquise Hill is a slick receiver and that is the reason the home-state Missouri Tigers locked down an early commitment from him.
Trey Millard
(LB, 6-2/245, Rock Bridge, Mo.)
Millard is a big linebacker that has good speed. Missouri, South Carolina, Stanford, Kansas have all offered.
Chandler Whitmer
(QB, 6-1/185, Downers Grove Ill.)
Whitmer may not have the size and frame of some of the more elite quarterbacks, but he throws a sound ball. He holds offers from Arizona, Illinois, Stanford.
Giorgio Bowers
(RB, 5-9/195, Rich Central, Ill.)
Bowers is a player that could really improve his stock with a good showing. Northern Illinois has already offered
Antoine Lewis
(CB, 5-10/175, Proviso East, Ill.)
Lewis is a talented corner who has already made a commitment to play for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Corey Cooper
(S, 6-2/205, Proviso East, Ill)
Cooper is a devastating tackler with plus foot speed. Illinois got a huge early boos to their 2010 efforts when he offered them his commitment.
Roderick Smith
(RB, 6-3/215, Harding, Ind.)
The next great big back from the Midwest. Iowa and Ohio State have offered and it sounds like it will only be a matter of time before he commits to the Buckeyes.
Dyjuan Lewis
(WR, 6-3/186, Pike, Ind.)
With his size he could be a hard one to lsow down in the 7v7. Colorado, Indiana, Cincinnati, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan State, Purdue have all offered.
Joe Gilliam
(LB, 6-3/205, Southport, Ind.)
Gilliam is yet another solid from the “Hoosier State” and the local schools like Purdue, Indiana and Northwestern have all offered.

WR/CB C. Christian
Cullen Christian
(WR/CB, 6-1/180, Penn Hills, Pa.)
One of the more recognizable players at the event as he is being recruited by everyone. He holds over 10 offers from schools like Michigan, Pitt, Syracuse, Illinois, Maryland and West Virginia.
Isaiah Lewis
(S, 5-11/190, Ben Davis, Ind.)
Scout.com Top 300 member that plays a rover type of role. Iowa, Indiana, Purdue and Kentucky have offered and a host of others are paying close attention.
Austin Collinsworth
(WR/S, 6-0/180, Highlands, Ky.)
Collinsworth helped lead Highlands to a championship in ’08 and has been rewarded with scholarships from Kentucky, Louisville, Stanford, Cincinnati, and Vanderbilt.
Paul Jones
(QB, 6-2/215, Sto Rox, Pa.)
It will be interesting to see how the Penn State commit will play in the 7v7 environment. He is considered a dual-threat, but his arm may be good enough to pick defenses apart.
Kevin Weatherspoon
(WR, 5-11/175, Clairton, Pa.)
Not many schools have yet caught on to this slick receiver but the Pitt Panthers have noticed his ability and that is why they have already offered.
Derek Campbell
(RB, 6-0/180, Manhattan, Kan.)
Campbell has a great size and frame, but not a lot of schools have noticed him yet. Kansas State has extended a schollie.
Brad Hefley
(TE/LB, 6-5/255, Riverton, Kan.)
Hefley is a special athlete with great size. He could play TE and LB in a 7v7 setting, but he could wind up on the defensive line in college. Kansas State has offered him as well.
Orne Bey
(CB, 5-8/165, Gateway, Pa.)
Nobody loves to compete more than Bay. He may not be the biggest dog in the fight, but he is one of the fiercest.
