Colvin Pumped After OU Camp Experience

Aaron Colvin was turning heads all day at OU's elite level camp by showing tremendous footwork and hips in the drills and then he went on to dominate in the one-on-one drills. He may have come in to the camp as a sleeper, but don't look for him to be under the radar much longer.

It is more than fair to say that Aaron Colvin, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound corner from Owasso had a great day at the Oklahoma Sooners' elite level one-day prospect camp on Saturday morning.

"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."

Colvin showed tremendous skills in coverage and was able to lock down some of the camps brightest stars at wide receiver.

"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 has some amazing skills, so why did it take so long for him to emerge on the national radar?

"I got hurt the third game of the season and that kind of cut it back," Colvin explained. "I played really good the first two games. I had like three picks and almost 40 tackles. I played good enough that it kept the coaches interested. I went to these camps and just tried to show them that I could move around, and it is paying off."

Colvin has offers from UNLV, Tulsa, North Texas and Missouri. Could the Sooners be the next to join the list?

"Yes sir," Colvin hoped. "They can not offer at the camp. They want me to call them back on Tuesday. They never honestly really told me that they were going too (offer), but they gave me the heads up to call them. He just said little things that made it sound pretty convincing (that OU may offer)."

How will the impending offer from OU effect the way he thinks about the recruiting process?

"An offer from them definitely puts them at the top of my list. It is one of the closest (schools) and one of the first to come in. Honestly, I will probably not commit right when I get it, but if they say something that just really makes me want to, then it is definitely a possibility."

"It is definitely a great feeling, but I am just trying to stay humble with it and stay hungry and I still want to get it. I feel like there are a lot of schools that are really close (to offering). But to get an offer from OU puts it on a different level. I am definitely excited, but we will see what happens."
