"I haven't played at all this season yet," Colvin said. "I had taken some online classes over the summer that I needed for summer school and my academic advisor never gave me the deadlines for when they were supposed to be completed. I got them done and everything but I guess they weren't on time and we have a policy here. I became ineligible for the first five games of the season. I'll be back."
In the meantime, Colvin has been practicing and working out with all of his teammates.
"Man, I can't wait till I get back on the field," he said. "I still practice every day and I've really been working hard in the weight room getting stronger. I'm up to 200 pounds already. I'm excited to start playing again."
In addition to being one of the most talented players in the state of California, Colvin is one of the nation's most heavily recruited wide receivers right now.
"Ive been talking to a lot of coaches these past few weeks," he said. "Actually, just before you called I was talking to Larry Coker from Miami. We had a good conversation and were just talking. I like him."
Colvin met Coker at UM's camp this summer. He also met some other talented receivers, including Early Doucet.
"Me and Early were trying to take some of our visits together," he said. "I went to Michigan last weekend for when they played Notre Dame. They set the record for attendance that game and it was loud. I had a lot of fun, chilled with three of my former teammates. I was hoping Early could go too but he wasn't able to fit it into his schedule."
Speaking of visits, Colvin said the rest will be taken after the season.
"The reason I was able to go then is because we had Friday off school," he said. "Once I start playing again, I won't really have a chance to go anywhere else until after the season. I'll probably go on my Miami visit with Early."
Colvin, who will take in the USC/Cal game this weekend, said he knows of at least two more visits that he plans to take.
"Miami and Florida State are for sure," he said. "And then maybe SC and Oregon. I like Tennessee too. They just got a new recruiting coach to recruit the West Coast and I've been talking to them."
The talented receiver said he really doesn't have a single favorite at this point.
"I really don't know yet," he said. "It'll be out of Miami, Michigan, Florida State, SC, Oregon, and Tennessee. I'll take my visits and then decide but I just want to enjoy the season first."
