Recruiting Update - Doori Song

Coshocton's Doori Song is one of the state's top two way players. We recently caught up with his head coach to find out more about him and where things stand with his recruitment.

One player you haven't heard much about who we like is Coshocton's Doori Song. On his video clips, you can see why – he is a playmaker on both sides of the ball. We talked with head coach Marty Arganbright Several schools showing interest.

"Kentucky is the only one who has offered early," he said.

Several other schools have been contacting them in May.

"Purdue, Northwestern, Michigan, Maryland, Syracuse, Miami (OH), Ball State, Akron, West Virginia, The Naval Academy, Duke, Princeton… he's also interested in Harvard and Yale," Coach Arganbright said. "That's kind of how our May has been here in the last couple of weeks."

Are there any schools that Doori would like to hear more from?

"He's not necessarily looking at it that way," Coach Arganbright said. "He's thankful and appreciative of all these schools that are looking at him. He's just kind of weighing his options right now. He wants to go and visit some schools and look into some of their educational programs and go from there."

As previously mentioned, Doori has been a standout at both fullback and linebacker. Right now, most schools are interested in him as a linebacker.

"It's been a mixture," Coach Arganbright said. "Some of them have looked at him as a fullback, but most of them have looked at him as a linebacker."

Doori is looking to camp at some of those schools as he will be in for a busy summer.

"These plans have changed in the last couple of weeks," the coach said. "As of now, he would like to go to Purdue, Northwestern and Duke and then also Harvard, Yale and Princeton and possibly Boston College, which is another school that is showing some interest."

One can safely conclude from the Ivy League interest that Doori is a great student, and that is indeed the case.

"He's an excellent student," Coach Arganbright said. "I believe he's fifth in his class right now. His grade point average is a 3.9. He's class president. He's in the national honor society. He's just taken some of his tests, so he hasn't gotten all his scores back as far as that goes, but he's a strong student and has great character, so he has really done well academically."

Doori currently stands at 6-1, 225 and was clocked at 4.68 in the 40 last year at Ohio State and Penn State camps. He also wrestles and plays baseball, and he has also found time to get in the weight room lately.

"He's got great strength," Coach Arganbright said. "He's been in there during conditioning class also; we have a class during the day he can slide in there. He bench presses over 300 pounds, cleans over 275 or so. His squat's pretty strong too. He's got excellent strength in the weight room."

Last season, Doori racked up 88 tackles, 48 solo, 40 assists, 15 TFL, and 5 sacks. On offense, he had 1464 yards rushing, 216 attempts, 17 TDs, and 2 two-point conversions for 106 total points. He also had 9 catches for 120 yards and 2 TDs. He was named 1st team All-Ohio and was an Eastern District Player of the Year. Coach Arganbright talked about Song as a player.

"He's very intense," the coach said. "He's got size and speed, and he just does a lot of things well. He's been excellent on both sides of the ball for us as far as being a linebacker in the middle of our defense and a fullback in our wing-T offense. He just does so many things well that we can't really focus on one certain area, but he's a heck of a football player."
