Not at all. Don't be afraid to eat closer to bed time (and that includes carbs.) As long as you get your daily caloric needs in (and within what ever range you want) you will be fine with your goals.

I'd say it depends on what you're trying to do. If you're eating right before you go to bed you're body isn't using those carbs. It's just storing it and turning it into fat (i'm guessing you know how much your metabolism slows down during sleep). In the morning you are hungry again and will eat and those are the carbs you will use for energy during the day.
But you also do need some food in your metabolic phase IMO so i would eat. It's not really healthy to just work out and not eat after.
Ok so i guess ya i'd go with eating after but i wouldn't be surprised with a little fat gain.

And personally I like to eat 1.5 hours before bed, but if you have to workout late and get to bed in close proximity to it don't be afraid to eat.

If your workout happens to fall late at night, your PWO nutrition shouldn't be any different than normal. Your body is still in a sensitive state such that it will absorb nutrients more efficiently and more inclined to shuttle carbohydrates into glycogen stores. Obviously, I wouldn't binge per se, but having a small carb snack PWO followed by a wholesome meal before you go to bed would not hinder your progress and would not automatically convert to fat. Again, like has already been said, focus on your total macros at the end of the day and don't be as concerned with individual meals.

A lite post workout meal, even at late night, is quite good. Have some lean proteins, chicken breast with some brown rice.

The dilemma is I have to report to camp late may at 200lbs. Rite now im 215. I guess running 2 times a day is a must.

15 pounds in 6 weeks is very doable man (especially since football camps are a one time weigh in, you could drop an extra 5-7 pounds of pure water weight right before the weigh in.
I got to ask though what position are you playing that has you at a max weight of 200 lbs? Thats like a pop warner max out lol.
