Arkansas State held it's last senior camp of the summer last Sunday, with a lot of current Red Wolf commitments in attendance.

AStateNation.com caught up with Bentonville, Arkansas linebacker Garrett Kaufman to get his thoughts of the ASU event.

"The camp was great," Kaufman said. "It was very hot. We did a lot of drills, a lot of teaching and a lot of competition."

Kaufman was impressed with his future ASU Defensive Coordinator John Thompson.

"I really enjoyed working with Coach Thompson, he is an amazing guy and a great coach, he helped get me here to ASU," Kaufman said. "I really like his coaching style, I got the chance to see how I'm going to be coached once I get here to ASU. I learned the little perks on how they coach and how they like to get things done here."

Kaufman was very impressed with the talent level at last Sunday's ASU Camp.

"A lot of camps I have gone to they would have a lot of younger kids working in and out of drills with you," Kaufman said. "Here they split us up and I got the chance to go up against the best competitors at the camp. I was very impressed with the amount of talent that was here."

Kaufman talks about his decision to commit to Arkansas State and commit just to play football at the college level.

"I'm ecstatic about my decision," Kaufman said. "It was their coaching staff that really sold me on ASU. How they make family a priority for their program. They brought each of their personal families into meet me, they made me feel like I was already a part of their family. It's neat to see what Gus Malzahn is building here."

How solid is his decision?

"I'm 110 percent committed to Arkansas State," Kaufman said. "My family and I discussed the possibility of playing baseball and football, but decided I wanted to concentrate on football and become the best I can in that area."
