Dane Corrick hopes to add Louisville among list

Jeffersonville High School linebacker Dane Corrick has been receiving interest from a number of programs across the country.

Jeffersonville (IN) High School linebacker Dane Corrick is drawing attention from a number of programs from around the country. Among those who have all ready expressed interest in the 6'1, 210-pound linebacker are Vanderbilt, Stanford, Nebraska, Duke and West Virginia.

I recently spoke with Corrick and he informed me that Louisville, Indiana and Kentucky have yet to show interest.

"I haven't heard from any of them," Corrick said about the three area programs. "I'm not sure why. I'm actually wanting to hear from Louisville the most."

Judging from the performance of his junior season, it is easy to see why he is attracting the attention from some major Division 1A programs.

As the starting linebacker for Jeffersonville last fall, Corrick recorded 91 total tackles, including four sacks. He also pulled in one interception for the Red Devil defense. While Jeffersonville finished the season with a loss in the second round of the sectionals, Corrick still made a big enough impression to garner some impressive post season honors.

In addition to being named All-Conference, the Indiana Football Coaches Association named Corrick First Team Junior All-State and Second Team All-State.

During my brief time on the telephone with Dane, it became quite clear that he is a motivated player that is striving to find his full potential.

"I still feel that I have a lot to do before I get where I would like to be," said Corrick. "I think I'm pretty good, but I know I can still get better. All of my dreams have come true so far, so I just need to keep working to improve myself."

He also told me of a few things that he will look for in a school before he makes a decision on where to play.

"It has to be a good enviroment first, but I will check to see if they offer either computer engineering or sports medicine," explained Corrick. "I would like to play for a team that is at least growing and getting better each year."

While he told me that he is wide open right now, he did list West Virginia as his early leader.
