Pendleton Working on His Recruiting Stock

Although a middle linebacker by trait, Portsmouth High athlete Trevon Pendleton has been getting plenty of looks at fullback, as well, including one by the University of Wisconsin.

MADISON – Middle linebacker Trevon Pendleton has been working hard this off season while trying to make the tough decision on where he wants to play football at the next level. The only offers he has received are from Air Force and Ball State.

While he's deciding on where he wants to visit, he has been working out with his team and on his own to better his skills both physically and mentally.

"I'm working out with the team every day. Also three days a week I'm working out at the LIFE center which is high intensity training," Pendleton told Badger Nation.

Pendleton has been working on improving two main aspects of his game.

"I'm working on my conditioning so I can play every day and every game at 100 percent and I my ability to recognize defenses quicker by watching game film," said Pendleton.

Pendleton has also been attending different camps and combines in his area. When he's not working on his football skills he tries to use his little free time to spend it with friends and family.

Pendleton had a very a good season last year. He ended the season with 96 tackles with 25 of those tackles being for loss and eight sacks. His team ended up 6-4 but he's very confident about his team's chances to go all the way.

"We ended the season 6-4 but we are really young and we only had lost two seniors. We should be really good this year and will be making a run for state," said Pendleton.

As Pendleton has been going to the different camps and combines he has been keeping his eye on the other recruits at his position. Pendleton knows what will make him stand out from the rest of the group.

"My true love for the game," said Pendleton. "My family is football oriented and I'm always working hard to get an advantage on the field. I'm an intense hard worker who is really aggressive and has great instincts."

Pendleton doesn't have any favorites and is keeping his options open, which is also factoring in to his visits, as he hasn't decided which schools he wants to make a road trip destination.

"The best offer, the right chemistry, and where I fit best is where I'll go," said Pendleton.

When it comes to the Badgers, Pendleton did make it to Camp Randall for a spring practice and was excited and happy with what he experienced that day.

"I loved Wisconsin," Pendleton said. "I watched the first day of spring practice and met coach Bielema. I took a tour of the campus. I loved the team chemistry on the field."

Pendleton feels that he has the qualities that would make a positive impact on the school of his choice.

"I have very good leadership qualities and would do anything to better the team," said Pendleton. "I believe I have very good character and respect everyone around me. I believe I do for others more then I do for myself."

Pendleton's plans for the very near future includes a seven on seven scrimmage along with a full team camp and practice followed by their first game in the upcoming weeks.

While Pendleton doesn't have a timetable he will make his decision when everything feels right. He hopes to make his decision before the season but won't if it doesn't feel right to him.
