In a summer full of football camps for Marcus Bullard, Marylands camp stood out for the Spring Valley HS (S.C.) linebacker.
It was pretty nice, said Bullard. I ran my best 40 up there. A 4.64 I think they clocked me at
Thats my best 40 out of all the camps I went to so far.
We did the vertical, he added. I went up and got a 36. Thats probably my best vert also thus far during camps.
The 2011 prospect has attended camps at several schools this summer, which include Tennessee, Auburn, NC State, and Vanderbilt. He has also camped at Wake Forest and Furman, the two schools that have extended scholarship offers to Bullard. However, his experience at Maryland ranks near the top.
We did an offense and defense, said Bullard. I was a wide receiver. I was catching most of the passes thrown to me. I was having fun. That was probably one of the funner camps Ive been to so far.
The linebacker also came away impressed with the Terps coaching staff.
Ive been to a camp where the coaches were fighting before and that wasnt really a good turn-on, Bullard said. But these coaches, they were working together. They were laughing, having a good time. Acting like everything was alright.
Bullard had the opportunity to meet one of the coaches before coming to camp. In the spring, Maryland Linebackers Coach Al Seamonson paid Bullard a visit.
I think he came to my school around spring practice time. He just wanted to check in and see me for the first time, said Bullard. After that I thought it was getting kind of serious. I started thinking about Maryland.
Bullard, who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighing about 195 pounds, said that the Maryland staff would like him to put on some weight before possibly offering a scholarship.
They also got to wait on a couple things, so Im just waiting, he said.
It is likely that Bullard will do a lot more waiting during the recruiting process as he sorts out his options.
Im not really favoring anybody right now, he said. Im probably going to wait till midseason to commit to any school.
