DJ May Federal Way Still Gaining Offers

|DJ May (#798) is seen here at the Nike NFTC Camp where he first broke onto the scene this Summer.|
It was a beautiful day in Tigard, Oregon as OregonPreps.com was working the SPARQ Football Combine in May. That was where we first spotted [db]DJ May[/db]. Having just completed his testing we caught on to the fact that he had clocked a 4.46 laser time. But he was headed home to Federal Way.
Luckily we stopped him and connected him to our friends at Nike Football who immediately extended him an invite to the Nike Football Training Camp at the U of O the following day. There was no way we were going to let him leave Oregon without getting his shot.
“That was a great day for me,” said May. “It started off a lot of these good things that have happened for me.”
He was a little apprehensive when the event started as you can see in the picture above. But that quickly changed as he does what he does best.
He is a performer. He keeps his eyes up and down field and finds his blocks and breaks off big runs. In the short time he has been playing football his IQ had risen and he has shown he is capable of great things.
The camp went really well and in front of a large audience he shined in Eugene. He bested all comers and immediately jumped to the top of our Running Backs list for the Preseason Rankings we do every season.
By the end of the Eugene Camp he won the MVP Award for Running Backs. That is something a complete new comer rarely does.
Now with his Senior Year and a near perfect season behind him he called to let us know about more offers he recently received.
“Wyoming just offered me. That is really a nice offer and I will be making an official to see them I hope soon,” he said.
That adds to offers from University of Idaho and Idaho State as well as Eastern Washington. All good choices and May is trying to reign it all in.
“I am definitely going to Idaho on January 13th and then I may switch my trip to EWU to a Wyoming trip. Then come back and try and decide,” he said. “I have seen Eastern Washington and the facility and all of that. And I saw Idaho State University which was really nice too.”
May says he is going to do his very best to get all the info he needs to decide what his best choice is as soon as possible.
Could a late offer from the likes of WSU be coming?
“Well I have not heard much for a while. We will see. Either way it goes it has been a great ride,” he said thanking us for getting him into that Nike Event and helping to raise awareness of him.
While many teams are looking at him for offense he is equally gifted as a pass defender. No matter what happens DJ May is a great example of the talent here in the Pacific Northwest.
