Around the State checks in at Trinity High, Christian County High and Franklin-Simpson High. Three prospects made some noise at various camps.

Trinity receiver Cody Swabek had a standout performance this weekend at West Virginia. The rising senior received some lofty accolades at the end of camp.

"I ended up winning the Skill MVP out of all the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends linebackers and defensive backs," Swabek said.

Swabek liked the Mountaineers program and got to see what the school what all about.

"I met with Coach Lonnie Galloway and some other coaches. The campus is different, but I like it a lot. The facilities were very impressive," he continued.

Swabek will head out to Boise State next weekend.

Franklin-Simpson defensive end Joseph Hawkins camped at Kentucky this past weekend. He felt like he held his own against a lot of prospects.

"I feel like I had a dominant performance at Kentucky. The defensive line coaches pulled me aside to talk," said Hawkins. "They wrote down my name, what schools I went to and what schools are recruiting me. They gave me their contact information after the camp."

Hawkins (6-foot-3, 230-pounds) plans to visit Western Kentucky tomorrow and Florida Saturday.

A 2015 prospect trying to make a name for himself this summer is Christian County safety Devon Wharton. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect camped at Kentucky and Louisville this weekend.

"I feel good about (the camps). I like the Louisville camp because we did a lot of drills to help with my footwork. It was great. I would like to go there again," Wharton said.

Wharton is being recruited by the Cardinals, the Wildcats as well as Western Kentucky and Murray State.

"I think I'm a good player because I go 100 percent all the time. That's what college coaches like about me," he finished.
