Bloomington, Ill. tight end prospect Tim McAvoy (6-foot-6, 260 pounds) decided to attend one-day camps last week at both Ohio State and Michigan, and McAvoy talks about his camps as well as filling us in on his latest offer.
"I camped at both Ohio State and Michigan last week," Tim McAvoy said. "I also added an offer from Ball State late last week. A few of the Ball State coaches were working the Michigan camp, and they asked me to call them the day after the camp was over and then they offered me."
McAvoy talked about his Ohio State camp experience.
"I thought that things overall went well for me at the Ohio State camp. They had a ton of kids at the camp, something like 1,600 full campers plus another several hundred one-day guys like myself. They also had about 140 coaches from all over at the camp. There was no pads and no hitting at the camp, so I basically was put through several drills and workouts. I also spent a lot of time working with Coach (John) Peterson, who's the Ohio State tight ends coach. The coaches had a lot of good things to say after the camp, and they asked me to call then this coming week."
McAvoy also talked about his Michigan camp experience.
"I joined up with the regular camp at Michigan for a day. Michigan also had something like over 2,000 kids at the camp and they also had a ton of coaches from all over the country working the camp. The Michigan camp was a lot like the Ohio State camp, which was mostly workouts and drills. In the morning I worked with tight ends coach (Terry) Malone, then in the afternoon I worked with offensive line coach Andy Moeller. Michigan is looking at me more as an offensive tackle prospect, and the coaches had some very positive things to say after the camp. I also was able to talk with head coach Lloyd Carr for awhile, and I got some very positive feedback from Coach Carr and I have a good feeling about Michigan."
McAvoy will wrap up a busy summer camp circuit this Tuesday at the University of Notre Dame.
"I'm going to a one-day camp on Tuesday at Notre Dame, and that's it for the college camps. I've been to 7-8 camps this summer, and I feel that I've been out enough this summer. I really have no regrets at all about hitting as many camp as I've been able to attend this summer. I've been able to get better and to learn a lot, and I've also been able to bond with my Dad. That's been one of the real positives no question. I've been hearing stories about my Dad in high school and during his playing days, and I feel like my Dad and I are even closer than before. Several hours stuck in the same car is bound to do that for you, and it's been great."
