Redemptorist corner making a move

Three-star cornerback Corey Trim is currently the highest-rated player in Louisiana without a scholarship offer, but that will likely change soon. Find out which schools are showing the most interest in the Redemptorist DB, who will put his skills on display vs. Patterson in a highly-anticipated nationally-televised showdown next month.

Ever since Redemptorist got upset by Catholic (New Iberia) in the 2009 Class 3A quarterfinals, it's been all business for the Wolves. A junior-laden team last year, the Catholic school in Baton Rouge is loaded with a group of fantastic seniors in 2010, including five-star OT Lael Collins, four-star RB Jeremy Hill, three-star CB Corey Trim, and WR Denzeil Warner.

Last weekend, Redemptorist started things on the right foot with a one-sided 27-7 win over St. Michael in the initial scrimmage for each team.

"I had a touchdown run in that game," said Trim, who plays running back and cornerback. "I also had a pass break-up, and I thought about going for the interception on that play, but I decided to just bat it down. It was a good little game for us."

The No. 82-ranked CB in the nation, Trim is still waiting on his first offer, but interest is heating up for the senior.

"SMU has been talking to me a lot - more than anybody else," he said. "They want me to get more film so they can see my speed. They want to see just how fast I am.

"I'm also talking to Colorado and TCU, and I'm looking forward to hearing from more schools. I hope things start picking up with the offers."

Redemptorist, which scrimmages 5A Denham Springs this week, plays before a nationally-televised audience on September 10th vs. Patterson and four-star RB Kenny Hilliard. The game will take place at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, somewhat of a neutral spot between Baton Rouge and Patterson.

"I think we're looking really good," said Trim. "Compared with the other teams at the scrimmage - there were six teams there - we looked dominant. We have a lot of talent and a lot of speed.

"I can't wait for the Patterson game; it's really big. I think about it every day and I'm anxious. We really want to play them, and we're glad that it worked out."

For a few months, it appeared that the matchup wouldn't take place, due to scheduling issues. Both Redemptorist and Patterson were orginally slated to face other opponents - but the schools involved were able to work out the details.
