Big 12 offer comes in for Laudermill

A JUCO prospect that is quickly becoming a hot commodity in the current recruiting cycle is West L.A. DT Kevin Laudermill (6-3, 300). The talented interior defensive lineman recently received his fourth offer and he updated on that subject as well as what he's been up to this summer...

"Kansas offered me last week," Laudermill told "I spoke to one of the coaches there and he asked if I had received a letter with the offer and I hadn't, so he said that it's on its way and that I have an offer from them."

The offer from the Jayhawks is Laudermill's fourth, joining Arizona State, Hawaii and Iowa State and more schools appear close to getting in the mix as well.

"I was hearing from a lot of schools in the spring, but this summer it's sorta died down a little bit," Laudermill said. "I spoke with coach Jethro (Franklin) from Miami a few weeks ago and he was just checking in with me and wanted me to know they were really interested.

"He said he was going to come out and see me this season."

Laudermill said schools from the Pac 12, Big 12, ACC and Big 10 have also continued to show interest in him.

"I still have a lot of time before I need to make any sort of decision," Laudermill said. "I'm open to any school that wants to offer me and I'll look really closely at their program and then I'll start narrowing things down, take my visits and then I'll decide and that will be it."

This summer, Laudermill has been hard at work preparing to build on a solid freshman campaign that saw him total 25 tackles and three sacks while starting seven games.

"I got a concussion in a workout so I haven't been working out the past week and a half because I've been dealing with migranes," Laudermill said. "They are getting better though and I'm not as sensitive to light and sounds like I was.

"I just need to rest up and take it easy and make sure I'm taking care of myself.

"It was just in a workout with our team. One of our DBs got an interception and I turned to block and this offensive lineman didn't see me and he ducked his shoulder and it hit me right in the head so that's how it happened.

"Before that I was working out about six days a week. I was running a lot, doing a lot of cardio and just in the weight room and working on my technique."

Laudermill is on pace to finish up his degree in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
