College camps are vital to prospects trying to impress coaches in hopes of landing a scholarship offer and one prospect who's trying to add to his list is 2015 Lancaster wide receiver Jay Hood. The 6'4 wideout on Tuesday was at another camp and we caught up with him for the very latest regarding his recruitment.
"I just finished camp at Charleston Southern today. It went good. I toured the campus and did a workout. They said that they are really impressed and they wanna see my first three games."
Those first three or four games are going to be critical for Hood as he holds one scholarship offer currently from Wingate. He brought us up to speed about some of the camps he's been to recently and what he thought about some of those camps and schools.
"Camp at Gardner-Webb went really good. I toured the school too. They say they like what they saw, and I'm going to call coach this week. At South Carolina State I thought it went pretty good. I like the coach there too."
"I also went to camp at East Carolina. It was great, probably the best one. I really like the coaches, the atmosphere, and the school itself. I talked to all of them and the head coach Ruffin he had already knew me and that really shocked me."
Hood says the ECU staff said they would get him to a game this year and they would come to one of my games this season.
We asked Hood if he thought more offers could be on the way from any specific schools and he shared this with us.
"Charleston Southern and Gardner-Webb but I feel like Appalachian State and East Carolina too possibly. They all are waiting on my first 3 games this season to evaluate me further."
The Lancaster prospect also plans to take quite a few visits on Saturdays this season to check out the atmosphere at some of the schools showing a serious interest in him. He shared those schools with us.
"I'm going to East Carolina, Appalachian State, Toledo, Charleston Southern, The Citadel, and others maybe."
