This week I had a chance to be on television as the guest on Sports
Talk, a sports show hosted by Jeff Alan on WMFD-TV Mansfield. The
invite was extended to talk about football season and recruiting. Mr. Allen has been following the blog and thought that it would
translate to television.

Mr. Alan has been following the blog and thought that it would translate to television (click here to watch the segment). It was fun to reflect on last season but it really got me excited to start the 2010 season.
Coach Samuels from Central Michigan came in to visit on Friday. I missed seeing him but talked to him on the phone. He told me that he had come to school to talk to my head coach. Sometime the visits to school are more about learning what the coach, teachers and principal have to say about a prospect as the recruiter tries to learn more about the athlete.
Ohio University, Ball State and Penn called me this week. OU and Ball State wanted to confirm that I am coming to camp. Cornell talked with Coach Valentine. They have a new coaching staff and have gotten a late start on recruiting. I missed calls from Villanova and Penn while lifting. It is frustrating to miss calls. It is more than a common courtesy to return missed calls because it acknowledges a mutual interest. For the record, Villanova is not just a basketball school. Villanova is the reigning FCS national champion in football!
I have made my first few camp decisions. I will start out attending Ball State on June 5 and Ohio University on June 6. Based on my calls and school visits, I am looking at attending camps at the following schools this summer: Ball State, Ohio University, Central Michigan, Bowling Green, Toledo, Akron, Villanova, Harvard, Brown, Princeton, Columbia, James Madison and Old Dominion.
