At 6-foot-2 1/2 and 250 pounds, Saginaw, Mich. standout linebacker Lamarr Woodley has been a dominating defender in his team's first three games this season.
Woodley, who doubles as a left tackle on offense, has 13 tackles and five sacks through his first three games.
"We're doing pretty good right now," Woodley said. "We have room to improve but we're getting there."
Woodley, who is trying to bring his ACT score up from a 16, said he's been busy talking to college coaches from all over the last few weeks.
"I've talked to Michigan, Michigan State, USC, Purdue, and Miami," he said. "That's my top five right now and those are the five schools that I plan on taking official visits to."
Woodley said he is being recruited to play defense end. "Some say I'll play rush linebacker but it's pretty much defensive end for the most part. I'll be a defensive end in college."
The talented pass rusher talked more about the Hurricanes.
"I like Miami a lot," he said. "I don't really have a favorite or anything like that but Miami's high on my list. They play my style and that's speed, speed, and more speed. They hit hard on defense and they're very aggressive. Plus, they send a lot of guys into the NFL."
Woodley said he had a chance to watch some of the Florida/Miami game on TV.
"I watched the Florida game," he said. "Everyone said it was going to be a good game but Miami destroyed them. It got so bad in the second half that I actually fell asleep because I was pretty tired in the first place."
Woodley, who has an official visit set for Purdue on Sept 27, said he's close to setting up the other four.
"I went to Michigan's game last week and Michigan State's this past Saturday," he said. "I'll set up my other four visits when the coaches call this week."
