David Knevel is a hot name on the recruiting trail. A frequent visitor to the IMG Academy football program, Knevel will return to Bradenton, Fla. to attend the invitation-onlyALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp July 27-29 for consideration to be named to the 2012 IMG ALL-MADDEN Team.
This summer, Knevel has been busy attending college camps across the country. This weekend, he will join his family for a trip to the Midwest participating in camps at the University of Missouri, the University of Iowa and the University of Wisconsin. This past weekend, he attended camps at Boston College and Buffalo.
David Knevel's standout performance at Boston College's camp was noted by 247Sports. From 247Sports.com:
David Knevel, OT: This massive Canadian prospect has been listed elsewhere as between 6-foot-7 and 6-foot-8 and around 270 pounds. Sounds massive, but it's also not true. He's bigger. Knevel measured in at a hair over 6-foot-9 and 285 pounds on Saturday. Looking at him, your first thought is that hehas to be uncoordinated. That couldn't be further from the truth, though, as he flew through bag drills and was capable of moving his feet well enough to hold off most everyone in 1-on-1's. Missouri has offered, while Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt and others are close.
Expect his recruitment to continue to pick up heading into the 2012 season, and we are excited for Knevel's return to the IMG Football Academy!
