Colvin Talks about U.S. Army Game

De La Salle (Concord, Calif) WR <b>Cameron Colvin</b> was one of the top performers in the 2004 U.S. Army All-American Bowl game. GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with Colvin on Monday and got his thoughts on the game as well as his thoughts on the Rose Bowl.

"I had a good time at the game though it was hard after hearing the news about Coach Lad," De La Salle (Concord, Calif) WR Cameron Colvin (Sept. 13 official visit, STAN Nike stats: 6-1, 188 lbs., 4.31 in the 40, 3.85 shuttle, 32.4 inch vertical, 13 bench press reps. 2.5 GPA/16 ACT/860 SAT) said. Spartan Head Coach Bob Ladouceur was hospitalized last week and the news reached Colvin shortly before the game. "I talked to coach (DLS Defensive Coordinator Terry) Eidson the night before the game so it was difficult for me, but he's doing ok now."

Colvin had two spectacular touchdown catches in the game, the second one came at a price though. "I think the guy who was covering me, Jackson, had his helmet come down right on my hip as I came down after the catch," Colvin said. "I got a hip-pointer from that and then aggravated it on one of the kick-off returns. They just told me to rest and keep ice on it. It's sore now but I'll be alright."

Colvin had a chance to catch up with an old friend. "I got to hang out with Early Doucet," he said. "I hadn't seen him since we were both at the Miami camp so it was nice to hang out. I think he's going to Miami or LSU. I also hung out with Marcus Walker out of Texas, Nick Patton from Kansas, and Chancellor Young from Washington. It was cool."

Colvin schools choices remain at Michigan, Miami, and USC and he will make his announcement on signing day. He still has visits to Oregon (1/9), USC (1/16), Miami (1/23) and Florida State (1/30) but is still not certain whether he'll take the FSU visit.

He said he didn't get to see the entire Rose Bowl but mentioned he felt things changed early. "I thought Michigan was doing good on the first drive until Braylon (Edwards) dropped the ball," he said. "After that they seemed to slow down. As far as fitting in I think I could do well at either school. The outcome of the Rose Bowl isn't really going to matter one way or the other in my decision."
