ACC, Big 12 Highlights the Offer Sheet for South's No. 35 DE Trey Laing

Schools representing the ACC and Big 12 are highlighting the offer sheet for 2018 three-star defensive end, Trey Laing.

Trey Laing, the 35th-ranked defensive end in the South, is really starting to expand his offer sheet with the spring evaluation period now kicked into gear across the country.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior plans to take a patient approach when it comes to attacking the recruiting process, but is certainly off to a great start with nearly a dozen offers to sort through, including ones from Iowa State and Syracuse.

A product of Tallahassee (Fla.) Leon, Laing is an up-and-coming recruit who resides just a couple of minutes up the street from Florida State's campus.

"Syracuse is a Power Five school and my first ACC offer," Laing said. "They're going to be on my board, always. Since FSU doesn't recruit me and Syracuse does, it gives me a chance to play them.

"It's a great school and they have a good atmosphere. I love the coaches. The staff says they have a great school, great academics, and big-time football."

Laing, who is fresh off a weekend trip to South Florida, says the Cyclones are really putting forth the effort and tagging him as a priority along the defensive front.

"I love Iowa State," Laing said. "I love the coaches and the atmosphere. I'm ready to get up there to experience the school.

"Me and the staff talk on a daily basis. They stress to me that I could be an immediate impact to their defensive scheme."

With no additional visits scheduled, Laing says he plans to reveal his decision at some point before the start of the 2017 season.
