It didn't take long for Rocko Khoury to make an impression. This past week, he went to two one day camps and emerged with two new offers. One from the Michigan State Spartans and the other from the Chippewas of Central Michigan.
"I called Coach Mahoney on Wednesday," he said, "and Coach Dantonio too. They can't call and they can't offer at camp but they can text, so that's how I found out and then I called them."
Camp was also a chance for the Traverse City West product to put his skills to the test against some of the nation's best.
"At both places it was a lot of competition, there were good players at both. At State I went up against [Birmingham Groves OT Deon'tae Pannell]. He had already come in with an offer."
Going into the week, Khoury himself had already received offers from Western and Eastern Michigan. However, these latest offers have both of the respective programs right in the thick of things for his services.
"CMU and MSU, they're my top two. They're the schools that I'm really considering right now. At CMU, it's immediate playing time and at MSU it's more about the competition."
Khoury's camp circuit will continue next week when he heads to Ann Arbor for the Wolverines' annual summer camp. He says that will be the last stop for him before he begins weighing his decision.
"I'm going to try to wait it out a little longer," he said of his committment date, "I was thinking about making it soon, but now that all this already happened, I think I'm going to wait a while longer."
