Josh Posley gained significant experience by playing for Warren Central’s (Indianapolis, IN) varsity football squad last season as a sophomore. The 6-1, 230-pound athlete saw action at several spots, playing on the defensive line and also lining up at linebacker on occasion. He enters his junior season with a starting spot at defensive end and looking for a breakout year for the Warriors.
“I plan on getting sacks and pressuring the quarterbacks,” Posley answered when asked what his expectations are for the 2010 season. “I intend on becoming an All-American.”
Posley, who helped Warren Central capture a Class 5A state championship in 2009, put his talents on display at Virginia Tech’s one-day camp on July 10. He felt good about the performance and got to meet Tech head coach Frank Beamer following the event.
“I thought I showed Virginia Tech that I can play multiple positions,” Posley said. “I think I showed my speed and quickness and strength. I showed that I’ve been coached well.
“Coach Beamer said I performed well. He said he needs to get some game film from my first two games and they’ll go from there.”
Posley has attended two other camps this summer, including Ohio State and Western Michigan. The latter verbally offered a scholarship while the former was impressed as well.
“I felt like I performed well at both camps, but especially at Ohio State,” Posley said. “I ran a 4.2-second shuttle and did well in all of the events there.
“Ohio State’s coaches said the same thing as Virginia Tech’s. I need to give them film of my first two games before they offer.”
In addition to the three schools mentioned above, Clemson, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, LSU, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Purdue, USC and Wisconsin have expressed interest in the talented defender. Western Michigan is the only offer at this point, though Posley hopes to change that later this year.
Posley would like to commit the summer before his senior year. He is open to all schools but did name an early top five.
“There is Iowa, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Virginia Tech and Florida,” Posley said.
