CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- There may not have been a more talented group at Sunday's Illinois Nike Football Training Camp than the Chicago-area linebacker group of Clifton Garrett (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield), Nyles Morgan (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) and Reggie Spearman (Chicago/Simeon). But there might not be a Midwest linebacker more sought after than Garrett, a 2014 prospect.

And two traditional Midwest and national powers are in the driver's seat for the 6-foot-2, 218-pound Garrett.

"So far I think my top three would be Ohio State No. 1, then Notre Dame No. 2 and then Michigan State No. 3," said Garrett, who has a total of five offers.
