Fort Scott C.C. defensive tackle Walvenski Aime is a junior college prospect that has gone under the radar, but he's ready to break out this season to attract more college programs to his talents.
At 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, he is a force inside and a massive body. A few FBS schools are beginning to take notice, and he'll be someone they make sure to get film on as the season progresses.
His final season at Fort Scott could be a make or break situation for him, and he's aware of that.
"I have a couple offers now but I know most schools want to wait and see what I do on the field this year in actual games," Aime said. "There's plenty of schools interested but they're still figuring out their own roster, and they want to see how I perform to see how far my game has come along."
No new offers have rolled in over the summer for Aime. South Alabama and Northern Illinois are the lone schools to extend a scholarship at this time. A couple others have increased their pursuit, however.
"Arkansas has been getting in contact with me a lot more," he pointed out. "That's a school I like and it's really a nationally known program. They've asked about my interest in them and playing in the SEC conference. Before that, West Virginia was another school that seemed intrigued and were considering offering me at some point."
His size can't be ignored and that's what attracts schools the most. Aime will take visits this season, but none have been set up yet.
"Hopefully I will be setting up some visits soon," he noted. "Northern Illinois has obviously offered and I'd like to check them out. West Virginia and Arkansas are two other places I'd like to have the option to see as well."
