The reason that five-star wide receiver Cameron Colvin (6-2, 193, 4.38) from Concord (Calif.) De La Salle decided to camp with the Miami Hurricanes was he wanted to compete with the best. Well compete he has. Colvin has blown up the Miami camp sky high.
Though Rivals hasn’t confirmed an offer just yet, our source at the camp told us he would be shocked if Colvin doesn’t leave Coral Gables with a Hurricane offer.
Colvin proved to himself and those in attendance that he deserves to be ranked amongst the very best wide receivers the nation has to offer.
Colvin’s stock couldn’t be any hotter than it is turning right now after his performance at the Miami Camp. His stock received its first boost when he was selected MVP at the Nike Camp held at Stanford in May.
At that camp Colvin ran a 4.31 and a 4.38 forty. He also had a smoking 3.85 shuttle. Colvin benched 185 pounds 14 times on a bum shoulder the day of the camp.
Currently Colvin has offers from Arizona, ASU, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington State, Florida State, LSU, Nebraska, Utah, and San Jose State.
It looks like now Miami is about to join in the Colvin sweepstakes.
Oklahoma, Colorado and Colorado State are said to be close to offering the talented wide receiver.
“Cameron doesn’t care if he gets an offer from Miami or not,” Cameron’s Godfather and guardian Jay Lightner said before they headed off to Miami. “He just wants to compete with the best.”
“Cameron is very driven,” Lightner said. “If he’s not working out at De La Salle he’s working out here in the garage.”
“Cameron does 20 reps, no problem here at the house,” Lightner said. “We have Olympic style weights here. Our weights are the real deal.”
Rivals.com saw Colvin up close in Hawaii last September. He made catches that were reminiscent of NFL great and hall famer, Lynn Swann of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In no particular order according to Lightner, Colvin’s top eight schools are UCLA, USC, ASU, Oregon, Michigan, LSU, Florida State and Miami.
Washington was in the mix but Colvin will see what happens up there with the current coaching situation.
Colvin is an exceptional wide receiver who has tremendous body control and great pair of hands. He has all the tools that are desirable in a successful wide receiver. He runs nice routes but what makes him dangerous to opponents is he is also an extreme deep threat.
There is another California wide receiver who also impresses the Hurricane brass and that is Lavell HawkinsClick Colvin was selected Best of the West, all-state, all-area, all-region, and all-league as a junior after catching 14 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns. Talk about making plays he averaged of 28.9 yards per catch.Here to view this Link. (6-1, 175, 4.42) from Stockton (Calif.) Edison. Hawkins has also made the Golden State proud.
Rivals will in depth reports on both of these talented wide receivers when they get home from the Hurricane’s Camp.
