OLB Timmons Talks Recruiting

Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln High School outside linebacker Devin Timmons has seven scholarship offers heading into spring practice which starts on May 1st. The 6-foot-2 and 200-pound junior has an early top three.

Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln High School outside linebacker Devin Timmons will get his fair share of attention during the NCAA spring evaluation period this May. The 6-foot-2 and 220-pound junior already holds seven FBS scholarship offers.

"I am hearing from USF and Georgia Tech the most. I have been offered by USF, Georgia Tech, East Carolina, Cincinnati, FAU, Southern Miss and Charlotte," said Timmons of his recruitment.

Timmons says that family could play a factor in his decision making process when it comes time to sign his National Letter of Intent.

"I have family in Ohio. My dad lives in Columbus. I really like the city of Cincinnati. I have been there. I like it," explained Timmons of his family ties to the state of Ohio.

The rising senior felt similarly about Georgia Tech and South Florida.

"Georgia Tech being in Atlanta which is pretty close to Tallahassee and then USF being in-state, I have family down there too," said Timmons of his interest in both programs. Timmons has already visited the Georgia Tech campus and plans on making an unofficial visit to USF.

"It felt good; it made me feel like I was wanted and that people are starting actually watching me now. I think I may be going down in two weeks," said the linebacker on USF offer and possible visit.

He also has an early top three going into the start of spring practice on Thursday.

"My top three right now are my biggest three (offers); Georgia Tech, Cincinnati and USF," said Timmons who recently received his first correspondence from Florida State.

The young defender knows he has work to do to become an accomplished outside linebacker prospect.

"I need to know my assignments and know what to do. I converted from offense to defense late in the year so I was just out there playing. I think I get off blocks well, get to the passer and have quick feet and hands," explained Timmons of the strengths and weaknesses of his game as a junior.
