WR Has UM in Top Three

Concorde (Calif.) De La Salle standout wide receiver Cameron Colvin only played in six games this season after serving a suspension. However, that was enough for him to make an impact. "I had over 700 yards and nine or ten touchdowns," Colvin said. "Ain't nobody out there that can cover me. Just like I don't feel like there's anyone in Florida that can."

Speaking of Florida defenders, some of their decisions on post-season all-star games recently changed Colvin's decision.

"I was gonna play in the CaliFlorida Bowl but then I heard that all the top cornerbacks in Florida were gonna be playing in the game in Texas instead," he said. "I switched when I heard about that so I leave for Texas on Sunday."

Colvin, a full academic qualifier, has narrowed his college choices list down to five. He's already taken one visit and has four others planned.

"I went to Michigan in September before I started playing," he said. "It was a great trip. The rest of my visits will be in January. I start with Oregon (1/9), then I go to SC (1/16), then Miami (1/23), and then Florida State (1/23). I'll have a decision after my last visit."

Colvin has already gotten in-home visits from coaches at all five programs, including Miami.

"Coach Johnson came out here," he said. "He said they're trying to bring in some big guys this year and he's trying to go out and get them. They have a lot of smaller guys right now so they're trying to get some bigger ones and I'm one they like."

Colvin, 6-1 and 185 pounds, said three schools currently stand out as favorites.

"I'd say the top ones right now are SC, Michigan, and Miami," he said. "SC is close to home. They have a great program and they throw the ball a lot. Michigan's got a lot of tradition and I really liked my visit there. Miami, I went there for camp and loved the place. I like the players and the coaches. They prepare guys for the NFL. They're all good schools and it's gonna be a tough choice. Distance aint gonna be a factor."

Colvin said he'll go into his remaining four visits with a few things in mind. In fact, he's got a real good idea of what he'll look for on those trips.

"I wanna go to a place where the atmosphere is really good," he said. "I wanna be at a place where they know what it's like to work hard, they have been there before. At De La Salle, we've won so many games that we know what it's like to work hard. I wanna be surrounded by that type of atmosphere in college. I wanna be around guys that work hard every single day, guys that wanna be the best."

The talented receiver talked about how competition will actually help a particular school if they have plenty of it for him.

"Competition doesn't matter to me," he said. "I don't care how many guys they got because I'm confident that I can compete with the best players out there because of how hard I'm willing to work. The better they are, the better I'm gonna become."
