Fosselman pleased with performance at UM camp

If you like to watch wide receiver play, last weekend's Ole Miss Elite Camp was for you.

Nickalos Brassell spent the weekend in Oxford. So did Donte Moncrief, Collins Moore, Joe Morrow, Tyriq Patrick, Cody Prewitt, T.J. Worthy and more.

Devin Fosselman was in the mix as well, and the Woodville (Wilkinson County), Miss., product was as interested as everyone else to see where he stacked up in comparison to his peers.

"From being at camp with all of those guys last weekend, I'd put myself in the top three," Fosselman said. "It's me, Donte and Nick and then I'd say Joe, from what I've seen from the camp."

Fosselman, a 5-10, 188-pounder, ran a 4.54-second 40-yard dash, posted a 37.5-inch vertical jump and then broad-jumped 10 feet on Saturday. Once on the fields, Fosselman was impressive in one-on-ones as well as in skeleton drills, displaying dependable hands and excellent route-running skills.

"Everything went well," Fosselman said. "I did real good. They told me they really like me and they're on me hard but I'm going to have to wait and see if they're going to offer me or not."

Fosselman also got some work in the defensive secondary, spending most of his time on that side of the ball at safety. However, he put in some time at cornerback.

"I think I did pretty well," Fosselman said.

Fosselman has offers from Southern Mississippi, Memphis and Alcorn State. He said he plans to camp at Mississippi State this weekend, Louisiana Tech on June 26, Southeastern Louisiana later this summer and possibly again at Ole Miss for the Rebels' one-day senior camp on July 18.

"I like (Ole Miss) a lot," Fosselman said. "I like the type of offense they run. They're real. They didn't beat around the bush. They told me what was up. …I'd be very interested if they do offer, but as of now, I'm wide open seeing what is what."

Fosselman is ranked No. 2 in his class academically with a 3.6 grade-point average. He's also recorded a 21 on the ACT.
