Avon lineman Joe Belden looking to make his mark after solid junior campaign

Avon DE Joe Belden had a big junior season for the Orioles. He is making the rounds looking for his first offer.

How did your junior season go?

I think my junior season went pretty well. Would've love to have won a couple more games. I definitely think I improved since my sophomore season. The game slowed down a lot for me since sophomore year, so I was able to make more plays for my team this season.

What schools are currently recruiting you?

Schools that are currently recruiting me are Nebraska, Michigan St, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Toledo, Indiana, Purdue.

What offers do you currently have?

Currently I don't have any offers, hopefully pretty soon that changes though. I've been working very hard for it.

Do you have a favorite school at this point?

Not really every school is pretty much equal to me right now.

Is there a school you wish was recruiting you?

I wish Michigan or Northwestern would get ahold of me that'd be very nice. I'm big on academics and those two are very prestigious in the academic category, along side football too.

What schools have you visited?

I've visited Notre Dame, Cincinnati, and IU.

Do you have upcoming plans do visit any other schools?

Yes, I'm going to IU's elite junior day on February 1st and Purdue's elite junior day February 2nd. Hopefully I can get invited to a couple more. I really wanna see every place I have the opportunity to.

What other sports do you play?

I play lacrosse as well.

What would you like to major in?

I either want to go to law school or major in Physical Therapy.
