WKU hosts its second on-campus prospect camp on Saturday afternoon and again, a large group of athletes are expected to be on The Hill participating.
The camps provide an opportunity for the athletes and members of the WKU coaching staff to work together, further strengthening already building relationships. It provides not only an opportunity to learn and teach, but also serves as an in-person evaluation for the Hilltopper coaching staff.
Participants will be arriving in Bowling Green from throughout the region and represent multiple classes. While some already hold a scholarship offer from WKU, most are coming to learn and possibly impress the staff enough to have one extended to them soon after.
"When participating in this camp as well as any other my goal is to better my craft through tips and techniques given to me from college coaches and compete along with impressing the coaching staff as both a student-athlete and individual," he told WKU Insider.
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound prospect, who is also garnering interest from Georgia Tech, Rutgers and others, explained that his relationship with Levine is a primary reason that he chose to attend the WKU camp.
"I would say coach Levine has been very positive and encouraging," he explained. "It's because of him and Coach Brohm and their success in Conference USA that attracted me to the program. I've been looking forward to this trip for several weeks."
Another prospect gaining interest in recent months is Cincinnati (Oh.) Winton Woods defensive end Andrew Kerobo. A 6-foot-5, 265-pound three-star prospect, Kerobo currently holds scholarship offers from Bowling Green and Kent State.
"WKU started recruiting me just this year," he told WKU Insider.
He's learned about the WKU program from his defensive line coach Arthur Wilson, a starting defensive lineman for WKU from 1999-2002. He added that he hopes to learn more about a possible Hilltopper offer this weekend.
"They have really been keen on getting me down on campus so that's up in the air still," he said.
The camp opportunity is a two-way street. While the coaches have the chance to see how coachable the athletes are, the participants also have the chance to do their own evaluation.
"First, I'm excited about meeting coach Levine and Brohm in person and working with them," said Gonzalez-Brito. Second, I'm looking forward to visiting the athletic facilities and campus. Third, Im interested in learning how the coaches run the offense. It's looks like a fun and successful offense to be a part of."
