Still Available: DL Darian Childers

Blinn DL Darian Childers (6-3, 285) started every game the past two years for the Bucs while playing both defensive tackle and defensive end, but even with that experience and productivity, he's still looking for a place to play this coming fall...

"(Childers) started every game of his career here," Blinn assistant coach Thomas Rocco told "As a freshman he played defensive end and this past year he added weight over the offseason and moved to defensive tackle.

"He's a very good player. He was very well coached in high school and he's a great pass rusher from the interior."

While playing defensive end as a freshman, Childers finished with 36 tackles, eight sacks, 12 tackles-for-loss and an interception. He followed that up with a solid sophomore season, registering 21 tackles, five sacks, 10 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery from his defensive tackle spot.

Interest in Childers from four-year schools has been tepid as several D-2 and FCS programs have given him some looks, but he has the ability to play at a lower-level FBS program.

Childers prepped at Copperas Cove (Tx.) High School and was a full-qualifier, so he can get it done in the classroom.

Wherever he signs, Childers will have three years to play two starting this fall.
