Corders Camping For Offers

Juan Corders was one of the more impressive prospects at the North Carolina invitation only Shrine Bowl practice this past Saturday. A 6'1, 225-pound linebacker, Corders showed he had the ability to hang with the top talent in the state.

"It's been hard, it's been tough but it's been real good," Juan Corders said after the practice on Saturday. "It's good to see a lot of competition we've got this season and guys here like the big boy from Crest [Brandon Spikes] – he's big."

While Corders hasn't received the press as one of the state's top prospects, he has been impressive at several events this summer and believes he stacked up well to his competition at the Shrine Bowl practice.

"I think I've done pretty well and matched up well," Corders said. "At my school I've been at the middle linebacker spot but I'm moving to outside linebacker so I've got to make the transition. I'm more like an outside linebacker so I think I'll do good. It's sideline to sideline."

Thanks to his impressive play against the state's top talents, Corders has begun to receive interest from a host of schools around the country including North Carolina, Wake Forest, N.C. State, Michigan State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Penn State.

Though he is wide open in his recruitment, Corders noted that N.C. State and North Carolina have a slight advantage early on. Meanwhile, he hopes to receive his first offer in the near future. "These schools have mostly sent me invites to camps where they want to see me one-on-one and decide if they'll offer," Corders said.

This summer, Corders hopes to earn offers at the camps he will be attending. The Durham native will camp at Duke, Wake Forest, ECU, and N.C. State.
