11 offers and counting for Antelope Valley DT

For a while now, Antelope Valley DT Edwin Delva (6-3, 295) has been one of the top JUCO interior defensive prospects in the country and he has the offers to prove it and recently he added his 11th offer...

"I just got offered by Iowa State," Delva said via text over the weekend.

The offer from the Cyclones joins full rides from Kansas, Kansas State, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, San Jose State, South Florida, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Washington State.

As a freshman last fall, Delva was nearly unstoppable up front for the Marauders, totaling 29 tackles, nine tackles-for-loss and four sacks and he knows he'll be a marked man this fall.

"I know I have a lot to work on, but I feel like I can do anything my team needs me to do," Delva noted. "I played mainly on the nose to start the season, but then toward the end, probably the last three games, I moved to the three tech and played there.

"I can rush the QB or I can stop the run. Anchoring is what I do well and I feel like I can hold up against the run or the pass.

"I know next year that I'll face double-teams all year and I sorta had that this year. I am working on my footwork and my speed and my strength so I can improve, but I feel like it's pretty good already."

"I definitely want to take my visits, I know that," Delva said. "Also, I want to give other schools a chance to offer me so I can see who else is interested and then really do my homework to see which school is the best fit for me.

"After I take my official visits, that's when I'll be ready to make my decision."

Delva is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
