Camp important for Kilfoy

Tim Kilfoy grew up an Iowa fan and on Saturday's during the football season, he and his friends make it a point to get together and watch the Hawkeyes. As the Davenport Assumption prep wraps up his junior year of high school, he is now being recruited by the Hawkeyes and hopes to impress the coaches next month at a one day camp in Iowa City.

"I am really working on my speed, getting quicker, and becoming more athletic. I know there will be good competition there and I need to be ready for it," Kilfoy said.

The 2012 safety prospect has been getting interest from the Hawkeyes, particularly from assistant coach Reese Morgan, who handles the recruitment of prospects from the state of Iowa. Morgan was the high school coach of Assumption head coach Wade King, so there is a strong relationship already in places for Kilfoy's recruitment.

"It's kind of interesting because he was my high school coach (Wade King) head coach in high school, so they are good friends. I like him a lot and he is a guy that relates well to players. He doesn't just tell me the good things. He tells me the things that I need to do and improve upon and how to get better before camp."

In his junior year at Assumption, Kilfoy recorded 81 tackles and had eight interceptions. The Hawkeyes aren't the only in-state program showing early interest in the safety prospect.

"I went to Junior Days at Iowa State and UNI and enjoyed both visits. I really liked the Iowa State visit and they seem to be showing the most interest in me right now," he said.

In addition to attending a one day camp in Iowa City in June, Kilfoy said that he plans to attend camps at Iowa State, UNI, and possibly Kansas State.
