Renaissance WR Still Turning Heads

Detroit Renaissance's varsity are ready to make a deeper run this season. With a talented roster that includes as many as 7 Division-1 recruits, the team is certainly stocked. The highest ranked player is wide receiver Sam Gaymon, who recently updated us on his recruitment.

After getting his summer off to a strong start by turning heads at's Cincinnati combine, Detroit Renaissance wide receiver Sam Gaymon has carried that over to summer workouts and camps.

"Sam's been working real hard," said Renaissance assistant coach Antoine Edwards, "he's been working on his explosiveness and getting faster and it shows."

The extra work has shown up in camps. Coaches have noticed as Gaymon, already holding a number of scholarship offers, the 6'3, 181-lb wideout recently picked up one more.

"Cincinnati verbally offered," Gaymon said as he elaborated on the recent influx of interest, "I've been talking to Marshall a lot too, they sound like they're going to offer soon."

The Bearcats and Thundering Herd join Central Michigan, Boston College and Michigan State as teams in contention for Gaymon's services. The Spartans have not offered yet, but his recent performance at their summer camp has Gaymon believing one is on the way. That trip to East Lansing was part of a successful camp tour which also included a stop in Ann Arbor.

"Coach Campbell (Michigan's wide receivers coach), talked to Coach Edwards after the camp. He said I did a good job running routes, catching the ball and he wanted to see senior film."

Sitting down and planning out his fall visits will be one of the next steps for the athletic wideout. Although he doesn't have a clear leader at this time, he does a have a good idea of what he doesn't want to do.

"I don't think I'll decide before the season, I'll be waiting until after the season is over."
