"I really wanted to go to one," Timmons said. "It was either going to be Virginia or Miami. I don't really know anyone in Virginia so I went to Miami since I have some family there."
Timmons, who has 4.56 speed and a 31-inch vertical jump, decided to return to Miami for its annual summer camp.
"I just got back from Miami today," he said. "It was tight down there. The competition was good and I had fun."
The standout linebacker said he didn't pay much attention to the names of other top prospects.
"There were a couple good running backs," he said. "I don't know what their names are though. They also had a good good linebackers out there. It was fun, we did a lot one-on-ones and seven-on-sevens and stuff like that."
Timmons had a chance to talk to the UM coaches after the camp was over.
"The linebackers coach said I had a good camp and that he'll be keeping his eyes on me," he said. "I'm still waiting for Miami to offer me though."
Timmons listed eight scholarship offers -- "Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Clemson, South Carolina, and Kentucky have offered already," he said. "Miami said they want to see how my season goes first."
The talented linebacker said he remains wide open at this point in the recruiting process but did add something interesting.
"I don't know about all that right now," he said. "I do know that if Miami offers me, they'll be first on the list."
Timmons talked more about why he favors the Hurricanes at this point.
"They top the charts on everything," he said. "They know how to win better than anyone else. They have a good weight training program. They have good academics and they know how to get players into the NFL. Plus I had a chance to work with the linebackers coach and that was great. What's not to like about them?"
