There's no rest for the weary.
Just ask Van Buren, Ark., three-star receiver Taylor Stockemer. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Stockemer is finally off the road after hitting a number of different camps all over the nation. But he's not resting on his laurels, no he's getting up every morning at 6 a.m. trying to get better.
"We have team workouts every morning," Stockemer, the nation's No. 93 receiver, said. "We're all very excited about the season already, and we're up trying to work hard and get even better. I'm working on just improving in everything I do."
It's hard to imagine that Stockemer could get much better, because he's impressed every where he's gone this summer.
He started out on June 7 at Oklahoma and then he went to Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and then most recently Kansas State. The visit to Ole Miss was an unofficial visit, but the others were for camps, and he did well at all of the places. He still has Arkansas' camp on July 21 on the schedule, too.
"It's been both exciting and tiring," he said. "But I think I did really well, and a lot of the coaches said they felt great about how I did, especially the coaches at K-State and Vanderbilt. I think I really wowed those guys."
Stockemer, who has offers from Kansas and Arkansas State, said the visit to Manhattan is probably the most fresh in his mind because it was the last place he worked out at. It was in Manhattan where he put up some of his personal best testing results.
"I put some pretty good numbers up there," Stockemer said. "I had a broad jump of 10 feet, 5 inches. I also had a 3.97-second time in the shuttle, and I ran a 4.54 time in the 40-yard dash."
Stockemer's trip to Manhattan wasn't his first, and he thinks he's done enough to earn a scholarship offer soon from the Wildcats.
"Everybody was leaving for vacation right after the camp," Stockemer said.
"But I'm supposed to text Dave Brock on Friday and discuss my future. I've been up to Manhattan three times, and I've got a really good feel for the place. I love coach Brock. He's awesome. I also really like Ron Prince. Coach Prince is unbelievable. I love talking to him. Both he and coach Brock are real player's coaches.
Vanderbilt is another place he hopes to pick up an offer from.
"I'm also supposed to hear soon from Charlie Fisher and Jimmy Kiser at Vanderbilt about an offer. That'd be a place I'd also be excited to get an offer from. They're an SEC program with great academics."
Stockemer also had positive things to say about Kansas, the first BCS school to offer him a scholarship.
"I still text with Tim Beck at Kansas," Stockemer said. "There's another great place that I'm looking at. I also like the strength coach there. I like talking to Mark Mangino and coach Beck. I've also noticed they've gotten some good commitments the past few weeks."
Either way don't expect Stockemer to rush into a decision any time soon.
"I'm not sure if I'm going to decide during the season or at the last moment," he said. "I kind of want to wait it out to see who's going to offer and then maybe take some visits."
Either way, don't expect Stockemer to get any rest any time soon.
