Amey Awaits Word From ECU

2015 Leon (Tallahassee) athlete Travis Amey has seen his recruitment pick up and would like to hear from ECU. Inside ECU Sports spoke with him about the Pirates.

Versatility is Travis Amey's strong point.

The talented athlete played multiple positions on the field last season for Leon High School in Tallahassee, Fla. Although he spent most of his time playing running back, Amey has been offered as an athlete, he plays wide receiver and defensive back as well.

He's picked up a couple of offers since the end of his junior season, but would like to see more come in. ECU is one of the schools he would like to hear more from.

"I have offers from Georgia Southern and Marshall," said the 5-foot-11, 160-pound Amey. "I have mail from ECU, but no coach has reached out and talked to me yet. I would love to talk to coaches and also would love to visit, I hear it's a wonderful school."

Although he hasn't heard back from coaches at ECU, Amey does have other coaches requesting his presence at Junior Days and camps. This spring he will attend Junior Days at Georgia Southern, Florida Atlantic and USF.

When it comes to choosing a school in the future, Amey mentioned staying in Florida won't play a role in his decision. Instead, he will base his choice off of which school he feels most at home at.

Amey's speed is one of the strengths of his game. He ran a 4.37 40-yard dash and a 4.15 shuttle at the US Army National Combine on Jan. 3, 2014.

Barring an injury, Amey will only improve with time. That's the plan too – he will be working on his game throughout the spring and summer to prepare for his senior campaign.

"My goal is to get bigger faster and stronger," said Amey. "I will also focus to stay on top of my grades and just work hard in general."

Amey will attend camps this summer at USF, Florida Atlantic and Georgia Southern. If he continues to impress and works hard, ECU could join the mix soon.
