FORT WORTH, Texas – At the recent TCU Nike Football Training Camp, there was one linebacker that stood out among the crowd. Michael Doctor from Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington showed great athleticism and speed on the afternoon and made it clear that he should be a high priority for college coaches in the coming months.
"Everything was pretty cool," Doctor said of the afternoon. "There was a lot of competition so I liked it a lot. We can use some of the stuff they trained us in later on in our careers so it's cool."
At 6-foot-0, 200 pounds, Doctor's strength is clearly in his athleticism and the camp setting allowed him to show that athleticism off in a big way.
"I think I did good," he said. "I had a lot of knockdowns, some tackles so yeah, I thin, I did pretty good. I need to get my hands on the guy more and work more on jamming and stuff. Other than that, I'll be pretty cool."
On the recruiting front, Doctor is still waiting on the offers to start rolling in, though he has one official offer to his credit.
"I got two verbal offers," he said. "I got verbal offers from OSU and OU and I've got an offer from [Tulsa]. Just this week at a track meet I talked to Michigan. They came to see me."
Like many other programs, Michigan likes Doctor as an athletic blitzing linebacker. Doctor is also interested in the Wolverines and plans to trip there as well as the Oklahoma programs.
"They like me as a nickel backer," he said. "I plan on visiting Michigan and I plan on going to the OU camp and the OSU camp."
Ask what type of school Doctor is looking for, the style of defense is important to him.
"I'm kind of looking for a big school, somewhere that I can play at, somewhere that can fit my style. My style is a nickel backer, guarding slots and coming in for blitzes and stuff."
