Haynes: WKU camp "most intense" he's seen

After attending several summer camps, including one in the SEC, 2014 receiver Montez Haynes said WKU's was the "most intense" he's seen.

Kingwood Christian (Ala.) wide receiver Montez Haynes was one of a handful of standouts at Western Kentucky's prospect camp over the July 20 weekend.

After camping at Mississippi State, Middle Tennessee and UAB among others, Haynes said WKU's was one of the best he'd seen.

"That (WKU) camp was probably the most intense I've been to," he said. "Very up-tempo.

"I think I did well. I had to sit out the last bit because of an injury, but everybody kept telling me I did well anyway, so I guess I did good."

WKU, MTSU, Ole Miss, UAB, ULL, Cincinnati and Tennessee Tech are among the many schools showing interest in the 6-foot-2, 175 pound wide receiver.

With so many schools interested in him, Haynes has his eyes set on just one goal right now.

Earn a college scholarship.

"I haven't thought about any real factors (for college) yet," he said. "I just want to play football, anywhere I can."

"I'm good at finding open holes, just finding out how to get open, and I've got good hands. I try to get better every day, I'm working on running crisper routes right now. I catch over 200 balls a day."

Haynes said he doesn't have a timetable set yet for a decision.
