D.J. Delfendahl talks about his recent offer to Southern Miss..

D.J. Delfendahl is a talented 6'5 offensive tackle from Mt. Juliet HS in Tennessee.  His recruiting is really starting to pick up as he hits more camps and continues his summer work outs.

Right now, he holds offers to Middle Tennessee, Georgia State, and Ball State in addition to other FCS schools that are in the mix.  His latest offer came today from Southern Miss.  

"It is very exciting," he told about the USM offer.  

"Coach Wright said he loved my athleticism and my mean streak.  They want me to come down there and see the campus and the culture of Southern Miss."

The staff had known about him from a visit in the spring, but they saw him today at a camp around the Nashville area that sealed the deal.

"They came down to visit me at my school during the spring and we've been in contact," he said.  

"Coach Wright saw me today at the field house camp in Goodpasture, Tennessee."

He said he's going to talk thing over with his parents but he is hopeful for a summer visit to Hattiesburg.  

"Academics are huge for me," he said.  

"I want to go to a school that's going to prepare me for my future outside of football.  I'm also looking at the culture.  I want to know the competitiveness and energy the program has."
