Marvin Shinn talks camps, visits

Marvin Shinn, Scout.com four-star wide receiver from Mobile-Vigor, Ala., drew big reviews from coaches and players who were in attendance at the Alabama camp. Shinn talked about the time in Tuscaloosa.



"The Alabama camp went pretty good," said Marvin Shinn. "I was up there on Sunday through Wednesday. I only worked out one day. I worked out on Tuesday with the coaches.

"It was really good working out with the coaches. I felt like I learned some new stuff. It was fun. I felt like I did good out there. I felt like I was the best receiver there. The coaches said they were happy with how I performed.

"I really enjoyed working with coach Cignetti. He said I did a good job. I also spoke to coach Saban for a while. He was basically just telling me he was happy to see me up there."

Vigor head coach Kerry Stevenson had a large number of players who participated in the camp.

"Seventeen of us from Vigor went up there," Shinn said. "We all had fun. I hung out with Danny Woodson a good bit while I was there. I thought he did pretty good. We have known each other pretty well even before we committed to Alabama."

Shinn, a Scout.com National 100 wide receiver, bulked up during the spring. He now stands 6-foot-3.5, 190-pounds. The possibility of visiting other schools is becoming less and less.

"Right now I don't have any other plans for visits," Shinn said. "LSU and Florida State are coming at me really strong. I don't know if I will visit or not. My commitment to Alabama is pretty strong now."
