Rashawn Fountain is a cornerback out of Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Fountain participated with one of the Michigan teams at the Badger Sports New Level Athletics 7-on-7 tournament a couple weeks ago. It took some adjusting playing with a group of teammates that he had never met before, but felt some of the things he learned will help him in his development.
"I actually do seven-on-seven every summer with my team at Eden Prairie," Fountain said. "We do a tournament up at Crown College, definitely next level type of stuff. You obviously have a lot of D-I talent here. It's like a benchmark to see where you are.
"I thought I did really good. I didn't get many balls caught on me. I had to learn Detroit's coverages on the spot. I learned it pretty fast, so that was pretty good. We had a pretty good team, but we're out."
Fountain, who has a 4.35 time in the 40, was also the recipient of the Defensive Back Award at the National Underclassmen Top 100 Football Combine. In addition to his 4.35 40-time, he also has a 37-inch vertical jump.
"Now that I know Detroit's coverages, I can use that to help my team back in Minnesota; teach them how to do the coverages, what to look for, what routes, how the quarterback is going to be looking at the receiver on certain routes," Fountain added.
Fountain has scheduled a few unofficial visits. He saw a little of Pitt's campus while he was in town, and might keep the Panthers in mind as well.
"I would definitely tour Pitt, but we haven't really considered it yet," Fountain said. "Me and my dad are going on a little tour. We're going to Air Force and Harvard and hopefully get to Minnesota, Michigan State, Penn State."
