In today's world of the Internet and on-demand information, there are only
a few things that are kept secret for long. About a month ago, the name of a
standout JUCO defensive end surfaced. Although he had an outstanding season
and honors were sure to follow, we decided to keep the name out of the spotlight.
Since that time, the prospect has made first team JUCO
All-American and was named the National Junior College Athletic Association
Region I Defensive Most Valuable Player. Now that his name is "out there",
let us introduce you to Luis Vasquez. He is a 6'3"-255lbs DE from Arizona
Western Community College, where he registered 16 sacks, 13 quarterback hurries,
and 20 tackles for a loss.
Scout.com was able to perform a one-on-one interview with Vasquez in Arizona. Initially, Vasquez began his career at Purdue where things did not work out. As a result, he enrolled in Arizona Western as a freshman. His passion to return to Division IA has fueled him to his current success. Although he is only a freshmen, Arizona State, Connecticut, and Rutgers have begun to take some serious interest in the standout DL. His college coach feels that he will be recruited by every major college in the country by the end of his senior year. But Vasquez would prefer to return to the east coast, where he starred at Ledyard High School in Connecticut.
Since Vasquez would prefer to play on the East Coast, this places Rutgers and Connecticut well position to recruit him. Scout.com will be here to provide you with the status of Vasquez's recruitment. Stay tuned...
