Canisius' Timmis honored at UMiami camp

If you follow me on twitter, you've already seen my retweet of Canisius (@CanisiusHSFB) spreading the news that Mercer Timmis was awarded "best linebacker" at the Miami Hurricanes' camp.

Timmis, the standout running back from Canada, was invited to participate in the camp -- and didn't play much LB last year. Certainly an impressive trip for him. I'd have to think that the success of James Gaines down Miami way helped the U learn about Timmis.

Timmis (6-foot-2, 225) and lineman Jack Plunkett (6-5, 290) have both had official visits to Boston College and Pittsburgh while Stanford, Akron, Bowling Green and Syracuse have all been in contact with both -- that's according to Canisius' coaching staff. Timmis is drawing interest from other Big East schools, like Syracuse and West Virginia, along with the University at Buffalo. UConn and Bowling Green have also expressed interest in Plunkett.

Chris Jugovic, the anticipated starting quarterback after sitting behind Travis Eman as a junior, has gone to camps with Yale and Akron and has received interest from Pennsylvania, UB and West Virginia. Receiver Trevor Jachimowicz is also receiving interest from several Division I program.

With the likes of those players -- along with UB verbal commit lineman Corey Madlock -- and highly-touted Chad Kelly (Clemson verbal) at St. Joe's and Akeel Lynch (mulling several offers) at St. Francis, this fall's Monsignor Martin football season has no shortage of hype. Even Bishop Timon-St. Jude has serious buzz with all-time great Charlie Comerford coming as coach. 

Less than two months to go ... :-)
