-Jake, give us a self-assessment of your performance at the camp.
"I had a really good camp. I think I did real well."

What was your overall impression of the CU camp?
"I loved it. We got to work out individually with the coaches. There was a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches. I worked with Coach Cabral and Coach Hankwitz."

What'd you think of the new Buffs' defensive coordinator?
"Oh, he's great! He really knows his stuff. He taught me a lot in the short time I was there.'

Did you have much interaction with Coach Barnett?
"Oh yeah. Coach Barnett was around talking to us throughout the camp. He gave a speech at the end of the camp giving an overview of the recruiting process in general. "

How was the overall talent at the camp?
"It was real good. There about eight linebackers or so. Some pretty good ones too. The talent level was very high"

Who were some of the better players you saw at the camp?
"Zac Robinson, the quarterback looked very good. There was also a DL from Cherry Creek [Taj Kaynor] who looked real good"

What schools have you been hearing from?
"I've gotten letters from Oregon, Arizona State, Idaho, TCU, CSU."

Do you have any plans to attend additional camps this Summer?
"I'm actually going to the Oregon Nike camp this weekend. I'm then going to stay there and go to the University of Oregon camp for a few days. One of their coordinators came by our school and I had chance to talk with."

Did CU give any indication as to their interest level?
"No, not really. "

Jake is looking to improve his showing at the Nike Combine this weekend. We'll catch up with Jake later this Summer and get an update on his status.
