2016 WR impresses at Alabama camp

Wide receiver Donnie Corley and fellow state of Michigan prospect Joshua Ross traveled from the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge in Jacksonville Saturday to take part in Alabama's camp Sunday.
"I never talked to them at all, but I got a lot of love when I got there," Corley said. "At the end they called out five guys and we talked with Coach (Nick) Saban. I had never talked to him (before), so I was excited. He said he liked us and we were hard-working."
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Corley's appearance at the camp was preceded by an introduction to assistant coach Bobby Williams, and his performance now has the Wyandotte (Mich.) Roosevelt receiver on the Crimson Tide's radar.
"My coach and (Williams) are real good friends so he had called him and put in a word for me," Corley said. "They said I can come down to any game, and I might go back up there (later this summer)."
Cincinnati, Illinois, Toledo, Iowa and Ohio have already offered Corley. The Hawkeyes are the most recent to join the list.
"I went to the camp, got offered and then went on a visit," Corley said of Iowa. "It was wonderful. They are building a $55 million practice facility."
Camps are scheduled through the end of July with a trip to Penn State this coming weekend, and Florida State and Ohio State scheduled next week.
"We are going to Penn State Sunday," Corley said. "I talked to the coaches and am really good with their coaching staff. I actually like Penn State a lot.
"Florida State sent me mail early in the year, telling me to come to their camp. I am planning on (visiting) sometime around the 20th."
Corley was one of the better wide receivers at the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge presented by Under Armour this past weekend, and has also ranked as a top performer at several previous off-season camps.
