The Nike Football Training Camp headed to South Florida on Sunday and over 150 top prospects…
Defensive End Offer
With all of the talent the Herd has had in the past, and on the roster now, most Herd fans are trained to take a good look at any new defensive ends that receive offers. That holds true with a defensive end from Lake Worth High School in Lake Worth Florida. Standing at 6'3.5" and weighing 260 pounds, it is no wonder that 2013 prospect James Looney is being sought after by Doc Holliday and his staff. A quick google search of his name brings up a picture of him making a solo tackle without even having a helmet on.
Currently Looney holds offers from five schools. Those schools are Wake Forest, Minnesota, University of South Florida and Bowling Green.
Added to that list is Marshall. The Herd offered some time ago, and does have the interest of Looney. Looney's lead recruiter at Marshall, like most of the Florida talent is Jajuan Seider, or as Looney refers to him as, "Coach Jajuan."
Looney anticipates playing defensive end in college, he also lines up on the offensive line at Lake Worth High. However he says, "I will play whatever they want me to."
It is early in the process, but Looney appears to be one worth watching. The recent departure of Trevor Black, and the fact that Taylor and Bazzie are both upper classmen, should make the defensive end position an important one.
Stay tuned to Herdhaven.com for further updates on Looney and other potential Thundering Herd Prospects.
