Devin Arrington does not hold any Division 1A scholarships just yet, but he is hoping his play over the next month will help change that. Deep Creek’s (Chesapeake, VA) versatile star, a prospect being viewed by most college coaches as an outside linebacker/safety, is anxious to show what he can do.

Arrington was scheduled to attend Virginia’s camp, which began yesterday and lasts until Wednesday. He has already visited one Division 1A program’s camp and plans to travel to Virginia Tech, which is his current favorite, next month.

“I went to the Marshall camp. I looked pretty good, I think,” Arrington said. “They said I was running good and looking good. I’m also going to Virginia Tech’s camp on July 14th.”

Versatility is an asset for Arrington, who has seen action at the outside linebacker, tight end and defensive end spots in each of the past two seasons. He primarily played outside linebacker his sophomore year, but was moved to tight end/defensive end last season as a junior.

“I like outside linebacker,” Arrington said. “Once they put me at outside linebacker, I was in space and could do more things. That’s the position I played my sophomore year.”

Deep Creek head coach David Cox likens Arrington to a former Deep Creek and Virginia Tech star who currently plays for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

“He is a lot like James Anderson,” Deep Creek head coach David Cox said. “He is 6-2 1/2, 195 pounds. He ran a 4.58 on grass with electronic time.”

Stay tuned as we will follow up with Devin over the course of the next few weeks for more on his recruitment.
