Colvin Cancels Miami Trip

Five-star wide receiver <b>Cameron Colvin</b> was scheduled to take an official visit to Miami this weekend. Those plans have changed. Friday morning GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with Colvin's godfather, Jay Lightner, and he updated their visit schedule, as well as which schools Colvin is down to now. Also, Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr's in-home with Colvin has been rescheduled.

"He's a confused kid right now," Jay Lightner, godfather to wide receiver Cameron Colvin (6 foot 1, 188 pounds) from De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., said. "He switches from one day to the next. One day it's Michigan, the next day it's USC, then the next it's Oregon."

It appears the Ducks have made a positive impression on Colvin. He already has one friend playing in Eugene, Demetrius Williams, and three more fellow De La Salla team-mates (Jackie Bates, Terrance Kelly, and Willie Glasper) have pledged for the Ducks. "The Oregon coaches are really paying a lot of attention to Cameron," Lightner said. "They've been at his school almost every day. But the big thing is that four of his closest friends will be playing there. That's a big factor. He hasn't decided yet but Oregon is definitely in it."

To try and limit some of the confusion, and to take a break from what has been a busy January with visits to Oregon (1/9) and USC (1/16), they decided to take a weekend off. "Cameron wasn't really interested in Miami, and we had already been there," Lightner said. "So he decided it wasn't ok to take the trip just to take a trip. Plus, we needed a rest. We're going to Florida State next weekend though." Colvin told GBW recently that he had no interest in Florida State.

Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr was scheduled to be in Colvin's home last (Thurs) night. That visit has been moved to next week. "They wanted to get in last," Lightner said. "The SC coaches are coming in next week too, so they (U-M) changed it." Oregon Head Coach Mike Belotti has already had his in-home with Colvin.

Colvin has said he will announce on signing day, which is Feb. 4. "We just got word that they are going to have Cameron on (ESPN) Sportscenter to make his announcement," Lightner said. "They will have it live at 3:15 p.m. on the 4th., Cameron is real excited about that."

While a lot of prospects ponder where their counterparts are going, Lightner said Colvin has no such worries. He says his god-son actually looks forward to having quality team-mates. "Cameron isn't afraid of competition at all," he said. "As a matter of fact he hopes there are other great receivers on whichever team he chooses, that way he won't get double-teamed."

Lightner confirmed that Colvin has narrowed his list to Michigan, USC, and Oregon, with no team having the advantage. "He can't go wrong with any of those schools," Lightner said. "They all have great things to offer. He really hasn't decided yet so all of the people who think they know where he is going are just blowing smoke. I mean Cameron doesn't even know where he's going so how would they? He has his Michigan shorts on one day, then the next he wears SC stuff, then he'll have an Oregon shirt on, he's just a confused 17 year-old."

According to Lightner, Colvin will be working with a speed coach this spring to get ready for college ball. "He's always looking to get better," he said.

Colvin's stats: (Sept. 13 U-M official visit, 4.31 in the 40, 3.85 shuttle, 32.4 inch vertical, 13 bench press reps. 2.5 GPA/16 ACT/860 SAT)
