Pac-10 School Looking at 2012 LB

Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West linebacker Josh Lang is one of the top prospects in the Golden State in the 2012 class. And one Pac-10 program is taking notice…

"Arizona State is showing a lot of interest," said Josh Lang (6-1, 210).

"I've talked to [head] Coach [Dennis] Erikson. They say they like my film and their defensive coordinator likes me. They want me to come to their summer camp."

Lang competed at last week's Stanford NFTC and at the Las Vegas Badger/New Level 7on7 Passing Tournament in March. At both events, he displayed his solid footwork and improving cover skills. He's been training with the DB Guru Tony Perry in the offseason.

"It's great," Lang said of learning from Coach Perry. "I feel more flexible. I have more balance and I feel faster. I was way more physical [at the Stanford NFTC] than I usually am."

The MIKE backer started last season as a sophomore earning all-league honors. This offseason he is working hard to improve his speed and flexibility. "I run a 4.89 [forty-yard dash]. I'm trying to get it down to a 4.75," said Lang. "I'm starting to hit the weights pretty hard since baseball season is over."

Lang says Arizona, California, Oregon, UCLA, Utah, and Vanderbilt have shown some interest too. He has no early favorites but likes the Sun Devils, Utes, and Stanford.

He plans to camp at ASU, UCLA, and at Passing Down.

Academically, Lang reports a 2.95 GPA.
