West LA's Laudermill has three offers

A JUCO defensive lineman who already has three offers and several more programs eyeing his talents is West LA DT Kevin Laudermill (6-4, 287). JCFootball.com spoke with the talented interior defensive line prospect and he updated us on things...

Laudermill prepped at Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles, but after a solid junior campaign, an injury as a senior limited his opportunities.

"In my junior year, I had a lot of schools recruiting me," Laudermill told JCFootball.com. "Oregon, Arizona State, Iowa State, they were all looking at me, but I had an MCL sprain and I didn't have a good senior year, so I was going to have to walk on and I didn't really want to do that, so I came to West LA and it's been a good deal for me.

"The coaches here, they are really good and I liked their scheme and how they made me feel comfortable."

As a freshman last fall, Laudermill missed the first three games of the season while dealing with his MCL injury, but once he got back to full health he started and was a presence inside for the Wildcats.

"I'm at my best stopping the run, but I can pass-rush too," Laudermill said. "Last year I played almost everywhere for us. I played the zero (NG) where I was head up on the center a lot, but I also played the one, the two and the three (pass-rushing) tech, so I can do it all."

For the season Laudermill totaled 25 tackles and three sacks while starting seven games, but even with that productivity, he isn't satisfied with where he's at from a playing standpoint.

"I'm always trying to get better," Laudermill said. "I've been working on keeping my weight down and my speed and increasing my strength. When I got here I was barely benching 300 pounds, but this year I hit 385 and I'm working on getting even stronger."

On the recruiting front, Laudermill already has three offers and more schools are showing him quite a bit of interest.

"I have three offers right now," Laudermill said. "I have offers from Arizona State, Iowa State, and Hawaii and a bunch of other schools, like Oregon, USC, Cincinnati, Utah State, UCLA and Oregon State have all come out to watch our spring practices or sent me something."

Laudermill was a full-qualifier out of high school and he plans to sign with a school in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
