Tennessee linebacker talks Navy camp

Weston Roundtree has been busy this summer. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound linebacker tells GoMids.com he's been to 11 different states in the last 22 days, including a campus visit to the U.S. Naval Academy. From Wilson Central High School in Lebanon, Tenn., Roundtree holds offers from Navy, Air Force, and five others after a big junior season.

"Navy came in a couple of weeks ago with the offer," Roundtree said. "I spoke with Coach Ingram. He said that they really liked the way I play. They see me as a guy who can play safety or walk up and play middle or outside linebacker. He said they view my versatility as a big asset.

"Last week I went to Annapolis for camp and I loved it. It was beautiful. The campus is amazing. It was a great all-around experience. I really enjoyed the coaching staff. They're people who I could definitely see myself with for the next four or five years of my life."

Roundtree went to shore up offers at Middle Tennessee and Arkansas State camps as well. He's not done yet. He still plans on going to camp at Cincinnati and UVA before the end of summer.

"Right now, I'm still open with no favorites," he shared. "I would like to go to a school with great academics, great facilities, and a good strength and conditioning coach."

After transferring from a small private school, Roundtree became a varsity starter in 2013 at Wilson Central. He made more than 100 tackles and led his team to a 6-4 mark on the season.

A few years ago on family vacation, Roundtree visited the U.S, Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs. He said going to a service academy is something he's always considered.
