Shiloh Means is a name that rarely anyone has heard of in college football recruiting, but it is sure to appear a handful of times in the future.

According to 247Sports, the 2020 athlete shined at Elite Sports Camp on Wednesday at Bishop Chatard High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Means plays any skilled position on offense, while playing linebacker and safety on defense. The camp on Wednesday was hosted by the Michigan Wolverines.

"I think the camp went really well," Means said. "We did 1-on-1s, some drills and a lot of bag work, plus some competitions. I talked to coach [Jim] Harbaugh and we just introduced ourselves and I told him my name and position. I had more conversation with other coaches like coach Bam, coach Smith, coach Zordich and coach Wheatley. I remember coach Wheatley saying, 'if you make a mistake, make it a good one.'"

As a 2020 recruit, Means has a long way to go until he gets ready to head off for college football action. He said he needs to "get stronger, add some size to my frame along with getting faster and becoming more comfortable with coverages." The athlete added, "My strengths are that I have been exposed to great competition, I play individual and team sports, I am a multisport athlete, I am a quick learner and I am coachable."

Means played for Westlane Middle School last season and will play for Cathedral High School for the 2016 season. During his first game of the season, Means fought through an injury to help lead his team to victory on the offensive and defensive side of the field.

"My first game of the season was the best and the worst because in the first half of the game I was doing really well," Means said. "I had an interception and no play got more than a couple of yards on me because I was covering really well. One play, the ball was coming my way and I tackled the running back, but I landed on my thumb wrong. It started to swell and turned red, I thought I had sprained my hand. Once halftime came, I got some ice, put it on my hand and waited until halftime was over. The second half started and I was still playing well at both running back and outside linebacker."

On making varsity at the high school level as a freshman next season, Means said, "Cathedral has a lot of talent, but if my name is called I will be ready."

Along with Means, 2020 defensive tackle Dane Middlebrook also was a dominant young player at the Indianapolis camp.
