Though Friendship Collegiate Academy (Washington, D.C.) quarterback Tim Brady Jr. holds an offer from Temple, Saturday's camp there provided him the setting to throw for new offensive coordinator Ryan Day for the first time.
"I felt that I did a good job. He was down there; he was paying close attention to what we were doing," said Brady. "After, when it was the lunch break – he had me stay after and work with a couple of the receiver recruits to throw a little bit."
"He basically wanted to see how I would fit based on routes and things that they run and take some drops," he continued. "They do things a lot differently than most other schools would do. So I think I adjusted well and I handled myself very well."
For the 2013 quarterback, the rest of his time at Temple was very familiar. He has been there a handful of times and raves about his comfort around the Owls, including with Head Coach Steve Addazio.
"I got the chance to talk to Coach Addazio before the camp, we spoke for about 15 minutes," he said. "I always knew that they (Temple) wanted me from the beginning. It used to be Coach Zach Smith (now at Ohio State) hitting me up on Facebook every week, now it's Coach (Tyree) Foreman."
Even with a solid rapport with everything Temple, Brady is looking for additional offers to compare to the future Big East school. With that in mind, he will audition for offers over the next month or so while attending area camps.
"I'm still going to go down and look at some other schools, but as of right now Temple is in that number one spot," he admitted. "I'm still going to Syracuse; I'm still going to Boston College and West Virginia. I'm either going to Boston College or Syracuse this coming weekend. "
With offers likely contingent on his performances at camp – is there a sense of pressure weighing on the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder?
Said Brady "I feel no pressure at all. I go to each camp each and work every day to prove that I'm the best, that's the mindset you have to have in the position I'm in. I'm under the radar…I know how good I am, I just have to show other people."
