Langley Hoping For Big Senior Year

One of the most impressive players at the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp was Collins Langley. The 6'3, 285 pound offensive linemen from Briarcrest in Memphis was one of the most physical players in attendance and is starting to attract the interest of a number of D-1 schools. NoleDigest.com caught up with the talented linemen to discuss the latest.

Collins Langley only played four games in 2009 due to a shoulder injury, he is 100% now after shoulder re-construction and is starting to show the form that had him on the map pre-injury.

"It was a tough recovery, but I am the almost there, I am up to a 355 pound bench press and expect to get back to where I was pre-injury soon."

Despite being exceptionally strong, that is not the calling card of this impressive linemen.

"It is definitely my feet, I can run a 4.7 shuttle and have a 32 inch vertical. I am not that fast in the 40, but I feel like I have some explosiveness, some burst off the ball."

Langley had his first breakthrough in Mobile.

"I had an awesome camp there and was actually invited on the spot to the Max Emfinger All-American game in Daytona Beach on December 31. I am looking forward to competing with some of the best in the country."

The rising senior also attended the Top Gun Camp in Deland, Florida where he was a standout.

"That was a fun camp, I met some great players there. It is funny the more I have been recruited the more I have heard the names of some of the guys who I competed with there. I had a great camp and know now that I can play with anyone."

After that he attended the Tennessee Camp and then made his way down to Tallahassee for the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp,

"I loved Florida State. I really liked the way Coach Trickett taught us and the facilities, the campus, the other coaches, it is just awesome. I hope to get the opportunity to play there."

Langley stood out because he was the only one who could handle FSU defensive tackle commit Derrick Mitchell,

"That was the highlight for me. He was just unstoppable and they allowed me to go against him three times and I more than held my own. I know I had him frustrated, it was a great battle. Again that has given me more confidence that I am on the right track."

Despite the impressive summer, it has not yielded any firm offers.

"That is a little disappointing. FSU, LSU, Tennessee, and a few other schools are waiting to see my senior film. I hope to impress them enough for an offer. A few of the schools have spoken to me about a potential grey-shirt, so I know I am right there for an offer."

Other schools that interest the talented linemen are Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and Ole Miss. He sports a 3.4 G.P.A and has a 19 on the ACT(which he will re-take). Stay tuned to NoleDigest.com for the latest with Langley.
