Salt Lake City (Cottonwood), Utah product Simi Fili attended the Mike Gundy Football Camp, along with 12 of his teammates from Cottonwood, and the 6-3, 325-pounder said it was a good experience all the way around.
"It was wonderful," said Fili. "The weather was great - (hot) that was okay because it had been cold and raining back in Utah. I was supposed to go out there by myself, but I wanted to take some teammates. Our coach, actually coach Cate, let us work for him and that helped fund it."
Fili said he and his teammates took advantage of the instruction from the Oklahoma State staff and the camp was a learning experience.
"It was a good camp in that we learned a lot of skills and technique that we can take back and use this season," added Fili. "Coach (Nelson) Barnes is a good teacher and he is straight forward, no shortcuts, and what I learned will be usefull on the field."
Fili said he has more planned for the summer. Cottonwood started running and lifting workouts this week and after using the OSU camp for an out of state experience he said he and his teammates also hope to attend some of the in-state camps at the Utah schools (Utah and BYU). As for his recruiting, it's continuing to pick up.
"It's a little of both in hurry up and wait and see," said Fili, who emphasized that he intends to take his visits and Oklahoma State will get one of them. "I'm getting a lot of mail from different schools. It is still more wait and see, but I liked what I saw again at Oklahoma State."
