Summers-Gavin has already been in contact with a few members of the Trojan coaching staff, specifically Coach Ruel.
"I actually sent him a couple e-mails, and then I sent my dvd to him. When he received my dvd and watched it, he then invited me to attend Junior Day on April 2 and the Rising Senior Camp in June. He then told my coach he wanted to se up a conference call, and we spoke for a while. He told me that he showed the whole staff my tape and they really enjoyed it."
Summers-Gavin already has plans on attending camps at USC and Cal.
"Coach Ruel said he really wanted me to go to their Rising Senior Camp, and if I do well there could be a scholarship there."
Summers-Gavin did admit that speaking with Coach Ruel moved USC up on his list.
"It definitely moved them up. He seems like a trustworthy guy who likes to get things done."
Although it is early in the recruiting process, Summers-Gavin has done some thinking about narrowing his list of schools.
"I would say USC and Cal are my leaders right now. And I would put USC at high interest right now. I talked to the Cal coach on Friday, and he seems interested as well. But I think I will go on all of my visits to see which place is best for me."
Summers-Gavin is an impressive tackle prospect standing just under 6-5 and 275 lbs, and feels there are a few things that set him apart from his competition.
"I think I have good technique, I get off the ball really well. I also drive my feet well and finish all my blocks. There were some points were I stood a little high, but that will come with time."
Things should start to turn up in the next few months for Summers-Gavin. He recently sent his tapes to colleges and is waiting to hear back from them.
