Defensive end prospects aplenty


Tremaine Edmunds and projection

So much of football recruiting comes down to projection.  Coaches are recruiting 16 and 17 year olds, and projecting how big, fast or strong they will be when they are 20-22 is an inexact science at best.  A guy like Tremaine Edmunds requires even more projection.

Like his two older brothers, Edmunds skipped a grade in school somewhere along the way.  He is currently a junior at Dan River, but he is still only 15 years old (he turns 16 this weekend).  Recruiting sites list him at 6-3, 200, and an outside linebacker prospect.  Chris Horne recently interviewed Tremaine, and lists him at 6-4, 215.  I got to see him in person at the Spring Game this past weekend at halftime in the concourse, and Chris Horne’s numbers are more accurate than the numbers listed on other sites.
