Colvin Meets with Carr

Things are definitely coming down to the wire for wide receiver <b>Cameron Colvin</b> out of De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif. With Signing Day approaching he's having in-home meetings with the head coaches of two of his final three schools, and his visit schedule changes once again.

GoBlueWolverine subscribers have been treated to the most up-to-date and accurate information throughout the year regarding Michigan's top target, wide receiver Cameron Colvin from Concord, Calif. De La Salle High School. The five-star talent is the No. 2 receiver in the nation according to TheInsiders, but he's been at the top for Michigan from the beginning. With Thursday's commitments of wide receiver Adrian Arrington and Tim Jamison, focus has narrowed to the two remaining targets on U-M's list, Colvin and Pomona, Calif. linebacker/defensive end Eugene Gernmay.

Thursday night, Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr was in the Colvin home. GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with Colvin after the visit. "It went great," he said. "I really like Coach Carr. They said they were leaving it up to me what I wanted to do as far as red-shirting. I think if I choose Michigan I'll try and compete right away for playing time, but I also have no problem with red-shirting to really get used to the system."

Colvin has narrowed his list down to three schools, Michigan, Oregon, and USC, with Oregon making a late push for the talented wide out. Three of Colvin's De La Salle team-mates have already pledged for the Ducks. Rumor's have also abounded that he has already made a commitment to the Trojan's. "There is no truth to that whatsover," Colvin said. "I hear about that every day and it's just not true."

Colvin canceled his visit to Miami last weekend and told GBW he would most likely be traveling to Talahassee and Florida State this weekend. Things have changed once again. "We're not going to Florida State," Colvin's godfather Jay Lightner told GBW. "Coach Carroll is coming in Saturday and he's bringing the whole crew. We decided we didn't need to put any more stress on the situation, it's Michigan, Oregon, and USC. I've always felt Michigan was the best fit for Cameron, but the distance is certainly something we have to look at. But, I'm also going to let him make his decision."

Both Colvin and Lightner said they are aware of USC dropping Sekeli Faeteete's scholarship offer after he had already committed to the Trojan's. "I'm friends with Faeteete," Colvin said. "He told me what happened and it's made me think about my decision more closely."

Colvin will make his choice known Feb. 4 at 3:15 p.m. Pacific Time on ESPN's Sportscenter.

Colvin's stats: (Sept. 13 U-M 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)
