The Westminster School's L.B. Joel wants college coaches to know that he excels at a certain aspect as a defender.
"I think my capability to rush the passer is my greatest asset as a player," Joel told GAVSV.com Tuesday night. "I feel like I can do that best on the field."
At last check, Joel's ability to get to the quarterback also went hand in hand with a 6-3, 215-pound frame.
On the cusp of his final prep season, opposing quarterbacks should understand that his frame has changed.
"I am now up to 232 pounds and I haven't lost any speed," Joel revealed.
Joel used spring practice to not only hone his skills as a defensive end but to learn a few new position as well.
This upcoming season he is slated to play a little linebacker as well.
"I have been working some at middle and outside linebacker," Joel said. "I like to think that I can fit into any defense at different positions."
On the recruiting trail, Joel hasn't yet received any offers but he has been hearing from a handful of colleges.
"I have been getting letters from Wofford, Tulane, Princeton and Georgia Tech," Joel said. "Georgia Tech invited me to their camp this summer and I am going to go. I am also going to go to camps at Clemson and Vanderbilt."
