Over the past few months, the recruiting profile of Sandia linebacker Seth McVey has increased. At 6-1 and nearly 220 pounds, McVey has nice size that is augmented by very good speed that has seen him post forty times in the 4.6 range. McVey has drawn attention at multiple camps this summer and is getting Ivy League attention based on a junior campaign that saw him register 109 tackles. The Ivy League also likes McVey's 3.53 GPA.
Recently, McVey competed in Providence, Rhode Island at Brown University as he attended football camp for the Ivy League champs. McVey felt the camp went "pretty well" although he says he was a little disappointed in his performance. By his standards McVey may have had subpar testing results, but he still managed a 31.5 inch vertical jump as well as a forty yard dash in the 4.7s. The Brown camp was non contact, so must of the work was done with bags as the Brown staff coached and evaluated prospective student athletes. True to linebacker form, McVey said "I wish there was more contact, even a little bit. I didn't feel the coaches got to see some of my strengths with no contact."
Lack of contact aside, McVey came away with a positive impression of Brown stating, "Overall, I really enjoyed meeting the coaches and seeing the campus. Rhode Island is a nice place." McVey was also impressed with his New Mexico brethren, Armin Day of Eldorado and Zach Hernandez of Onate, both of whom took part in the Brown camp.
Now July, and with camp over, McVey will begin turning his attention to a Sandia team that could have a solid season this upcoming year.
