Tappan Gaining Attention
Tappan recently attended the Under Armour All American camp in Little Rock and got some very big news.
"The coaches there told me I was the best Defensive Back that they saw at their camp. The told me I was for sure a D1 DB and that I did everything really good. They evaluated me on all aspects of my game and said that they were blown away by me. They invited me to their Top Gun camp in Williamsburg, VA. If I do well at that game, I will get a roster spot for the All American game and get to play on TV. It was kind of over whelming but very exciting."
Tappan has also attended several more camps this summer.
"I have been to camp at Memphis, Mississippi State, Arkansas State, Southern Miss, and Delta State. I also attended the Football University camp. That was cool. I am still planning on camping at UL, Tennessee Martin, and Central Arkansas."
Several schools are on Tappans radar, and he is still open to them all, but three are starting to stand out.
"I am really looking hard at UL, Arkansas State, and UT Martin. UT Martin just started contacting me so they are new to me. I want to check them out. I camped at Arkansas State and really liked them. I have plans to make it down to UL for their camp as well."
Concerning the Cajuns, Tappan has been in constant contact.
"I talk to Coach Saunders alot. I called and talked to Coach Hud. He was very excited to hear from me. He asked me how I was and how my family was. He told me he for sure wants to see me at camp and cant wait to see me."
As far as a time frame, Tappan is keeping his options open.
"I really dont have a time frame right now. I guess I will probably wait until after my season. But if the right school offers, I would for sure shut it down. I just want to feel comfortable at the school and with the coaches."
