Georgia DE Shows Well; Looks For Duke Offer

Josh Gebhardt, defensive end from Landmark Christian in Fairburn, Ga., visited Duke for a camp last weekend. The Southwest-Metro Atlanta prospect felt he dominated at the camp. He updated the latest with his recruitment and other camps planned for the summer.

"I did very well in the pass rush drills," Josh Gebhardt stated of the Duke camp. "There was only a few times that I didn't get to the quarterback. I pretty much dominated in the pass rush drills."

"I ran a 4.6 at the camp. After my first 40 I had just about every coach come over to watch me run my second 40. Then at the end of the day they raced the fastest guys at every position. The defensive linemen raced each other over for 40 yards. I beat all of the defensive linemen there."

"I'm surprised they haven't offered yet. After I ran 4.6, weighed in at 220 pounds and did well in the all of the drills, I'm kinda shocked they didn't offer. I'm still keeping my options open, though."

Gebhardt will look to show his versatility this weekend.

"I'll be at Vanderbilt this weekend," he commented. "They're probably gonna work me out as a linebacker and as a defensive lineman. I've talked to Coach (Des) Kitchings, and they want to look at me at both positions."

"I wanna show that being from a small school doesn't matter what kind of player you are. I want them to see my athleticism, my quickness, and that I can fit into their program."

Gebhardt is looking to take advantage of his time this summer.

"I know that I'll be at an Ole Miss camp this summer," he said. "After that it's in the air. I will definitely go to more (camps) this summer. I want to get to as many camps as I can."
