Recruiting: Colvin Receiving More Attention

We received a text Thursday afternoon from defensive back prospect Aaron Colvin of Owasso, Okla. Colvin was so impressive in a statewide tour of camps this summer from Tulsa to Norman to Stillwater. Colvin ended up with offers from all three schools. We asked Colvin if anything new had developed in his recruiting?

"No, except for a lot of looks," he texted us back. "I'll let you know when some more offers roll in."

Colvin started the parade of text messages by offering to send us some video highlights to post on the site of which we gladly accepted the offer.

When we mentioned that his offers so far are really strong, including the offers from Oklahoma State, Tulsa, and OU after he appeared in the three camps he texted back this: "I appreciate it, but there are a lot of (schools) coming on strong. I'll give you the info."

Colvin recently visited Norman again to get another look at the program and he is planning on visiting Oklahoma State soon, possibly as soon as this weekend. He also said he might be at the OSU half-day camp on July 25. However, after participating in the camp on June 14 and earning a scholarship offer I'm not sure the 6-0, 180-pound Colvin needs to participate.

"I just need to stay competing, stay hungry," added Colvin, who was injured last season but has shown the speed and the ability overall to play either cornerback or safety. "I just need to call Coach (Jason) Jones (to finalize when he is coming).

"I'm pretty sure about things right now in recruiting. I think I can make my decision pretty soon, maybe even in July. I'm looking for a place where I feel at home. I am going to be living there for four or five years. I want to be comfortable. I'm also looking at playing opportunities. I do think if I apply myself I can play at any of the schools."

Those schools include the three in-state colleges along with Arkansas, UNLV, North Texas, and Missouri State. Then, of course, as Colvin texted us there could be others added to the list.
