One of the top prospects at OSU's senior advanced camp last weekend was Bloomington, Ill., tight end Tim McAvoy.

McAvoy (6-6, 260, 4.9) was busy this summer. He made camp stops at Arkansas, Ohio State and Notre Dame. How did the OSU camp compare?

"I thought it was a lot of fun," McAvoy said. "I got to be coached by the coaches that maybe someday I will play for. The atmosphere was great and the competition was pretty good. We went to the stadium as well. It would be neat to play a game in a place like that.

"All of the camps were a lot of fun."

After seeing Ohio State, McAvoy went on to Notre Dame.

"I also had a lot of fun at Notre Dame," he said. "We toured the campus and I was also able to talk with the coaches at Notre Dame again. I worked a lot with the offensive linemen there."

McAvoy has offers from Arkansas, Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Northern Illinois and Ball State. However, he wants to see if anything may develop with Michigan or Ohio State.

"The coaches at Ohio State told me they were going to discuss what they need and how I might fit in," McAvoy said.

McAvoy's Bloomington team has posted back-to-back 13-1 seasons.

"Sadly, our two losses were in the state championship game," said McAvoy, who also plays defensive tackle and defensive end. "But it was a great experience to get there."

McAvoy would get passing marks as a blocking tight end.

"We are more of a running team," he said. "I probably only had the ball thrown to me eight times all year."

McAvoy holds a 4.1 GPA on a 5.0 scale. He also holds a 24 on the ACT.
