Recruiting: Owasso's Colvin Hits HR At Camps

Cornerback prospect Aaron Colvin of Owasso, Okla., had a busy week last week hitting camps at OU, Tulsa, and finishing up Sunday at the half-day high school camp at Oklahoma State. So how did the 5-11, 180-pound speedy Colvin do?

He had offers entering the week from Tulsa, UNLV, Missouri, North Texas, and Missouri State, but based on who has offered since, we'd call it a home run.

"Yes sir, OU offered after I was at their camp and then OSU offered on Monday after I had been there on Sunday," said an excited Colvin. "I'm trying to stay humble, but that is a big thing to have that big two (offering). I've got to stay hungry."

As far as the Oklahoma State camp, Colvin admitted that he has a fondness for Oklahoma State.

"You know I moved over here from Tennessee before high school," said Colvin. "I really didn't have a favorite school, even Tennessee. I just loved football, so I liked a lot of schools.

"You know Brandon Webb (OSU incoming freshman offensive lineman from Owasso), we've always been friends and I've been with him over at OSU to see games and stuff. I've always loved it at OSU. The facilities are great, and at the camp I felt I could have done better. You know I was at the OU and the Tulsa camps. I wish I'd had my legs under me. I did pretty good, but I could have done better."

He did good enough to get offered, so that is pretty good. Colvin also told Scout's Greg Powers that he liked the OU camp.

"It was everything I expected," Colvin began. "I thought the camp was run great. They definitely know what they are doing. I met Coach (Bobby Jack) Wright (for the first time) at junior day last year. I like him a lot, but I did not really know what his coaching style was and I got a good feel for him and I like how he coaches.

"I always knew that I could play with the best and I just wanted to show it today. I wanted to go against Demarco (Cobbs) and I wanted to go against #2 (Brandon Graves) because he did real good today. I wanted to go against those guys so I could show what I could do."

Colvin would like to major in sports therapy, some medical field, or pyschology. He said he has not set a deadline on when he wants to commit but if he sees certain things from the schools he is strongly considering, and right now it would appear Oklahoma State and Oklahoma are at the top, he said he would commit before his senior season.

Speaking of his senior season, he feels pretty good about the Owasso Rams.

"We're kind of under the radar right now, but I see what we have coming back and I think we are going to be pretty good."
