I attended summer football camps at Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State this year. My main purpose for attending was to receive recruiting exposure, but that is not all camps are good for. College football camps provide 3 great things: the opportunity to learn from top college coaches, a chance to get lots to reps at your position under these coaches' supervision, and a chance to get looked at and possibly recruited. In addition you get to see the campus and its facilities, stay in the dorms, and experience what that particular university has to offer.
My camp experience was a good one. I not only received recruiting attention from college coaches, I also got a few good pointers to work on. Everyone has room for improvement and camps allow you to work and get better. While they won't make over night successes, if you take home what they teach and use it, you will become a better football player. For high school players who want to learn and better themselves, college football camps are a great investment.

Tim also had a side note about how things went.
On a side note to you, I got great looks from Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State. All showed interest, but they cannot do much since their primary concern is senior prospects. On the other hand several M.A.C. schools showed the most interest, including: Ball State, Toledo, Miami (OH), Ohio, Bowling Green, and Akron. Hopefully all these camps will translate into some offers down the road. I guess will find out this coming May when they are allowed to call me once.
Tim is going about the recruiting process the right way. Get to as many camps as you can and learn from it. OhioPrepScene feels that Tim will be one of the most talked about QB's after this season. He is an OhioPrepScene player to watch.
OhioPrepScene would like to thank Tim for keeping us updated with how things are going.
