Offensive lineman Michael Boland of North Bethesda (Md.) Georgetown Prep has already attended one camp, and has several more still planned as he looks to grab more offers. The hectic schedule begins today and will take him through next week.
Boland, 6-foot-7 and 295 pounds, recently attended his first summer camp.
"I went to Virginia Tech's camp," said Boland. "I think they liked me, so hopefully something good will come out of that."

After the camp, Boland sprained an ankle playing basketball and had to undergo some rehab. However, now he seems ready to hit the road once again.
"I will be attending Maryland tomorrow [Wednesday], followed by Boston College on Friday, N.C. State on Saturday, and Rutgers and UConn on Monday and Tuesday," said Boland.
The big lineman knows that there is a great deal riding on his camp performances.
"I want to prove that I am a hard working, ready to play tackle and I just want to do what I know I can do," said Boland. "Hopefully the coaches like me enough to offer me."
Tulane has already offered Boland, and he believes that N.C. State and Rutgers are the next two schools that are showing the most serious interest.
Amidst this flurry of college camps and his ankle injury, Boland has still been preparing for his senior season.
"I have been in the weight room a lot," said Boland. "I go six times a week and it is starting to pay off. My main goal for myself is to pancake someone as often as I can and to never stop. I want to help my team in anyway that I can."
