CHICAGO - One of Ohio State's biggest targets on the class of 2014 board is linebacker Raekwon McMillan and the 5-star is ready to prove that he is the nation's top linebacker.

This is not McMillan's first trip to a Rivals Challenge as he was at the camp in 2012 in Atlanta as a junior-to-be but he feels that he is better equipped this year to be a force and is looking forward to taking on other top players.

Don't look for a quick decision to come from McMillan when it comes to recruiting with the top player looking to decide in December before he enrolls at his college choice in January. The Buckeyes have been a major player in McMillan's recruitment for quite some time but both Clemson and Alabama are set to get him on campus and make their best pitch.

But the Buckeyes still appear to be the team to beat and McMillan has said all the right things when it comes to discussing Ohio State. He is still on pace to take a camp toward the end of the summer, presumably for the Friday Night Lights camp, and see how he 'vibes' with members of the Ohio State team.
