Junior O-Line Prospect

Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame tackle Charlie Carmichael is the other half of the Knights vaunted tackle duo, and he has one offer to date plus other schools he's interested in.

Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame tackle Charlie Carmichael (6-4, 275) is the bookend to one of the better tackle duos in Southern California.

The athletic right tackle teams with Sam DeMartinis to give the Knights two highly recruited prospects on the line.

Carmichael recently received his first offer from Ole Miss, and is receiving strong interest from a host of other schools.

"I'm hearing from Ohio State, LSU, UNLV and UCLA," said Carmichael. "I also like USC, Arizona State and Notre Dame."

Carmichael said that no team was leading, nor was any team a real childhood favorite.

Still somewhat new to football, Carmichael has had an easy time picking up the game, despite being primarily a basketball player the early part of his career.

He attended the U.S. Army All-American Combine in San Antonio last month while previously doing the MSL Combine.

With tackle being the position he plays now, Carmichael could play guard in college.

"I know I'll be playing offensive line in college. I could play guard or tackle, but right now I like tackle. But I'll go wherever they take me," said Carmichael. "Definitely feel like I can pass block even though we run block a lot."

Carmichael is in no hurry to end his recruiting, instead he wants to take his time.

"I want to go through the whole process, see which school is best for me, but take my time," Carmichael said.

He'll be busy this spring and summer, going to the Scout Combine, Ohio State and Notre Dame camps as well as the OL camp at USC while also attending the local Junior Days.

Academically, Carmichael has a 3.0 GPA and took the SAT in January.
