It would also be an good idea if you performed well at both camps and that is exactly what wide receiver/cornerback Titus Young (5-11, 160, 4.6) from Los Angeles (Calif.) University did this week.
"Coach (UCLA Camp Coach) E (Eric) Scott told me I had to bring my grades up for UCLA to offer," Young said. "It was a great camp to show off what I could do."
