Freshman Mt. San Jacinto LB William Lulu is a full-qualifier that has a handful of schools evaluating him

Mt. San Jacinto LB William Lulu (6-1, 240) had an outstanding freshman season for the Eagles and he's gotten the attention of a handful of four-year programs who could be poised to bring him in this fall...

"I don't have any offers yet, but I've been talking to several schools and they said they would probably know more after Signing Day," Lulu told JCFootball.com. "The main schools that have been talking to me are Virginia, North Carolina State, UAB, UCF, Miami, Arkansas and Florida.

"UCF has been the main one, and Arkansas too, but the rest have said the call them after Signing Day because they need to see who they can get and where things stand with their depth charts and their rosters."

While playing in the middle of the Eagles' defense this past season, Lulu finished with 71 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and one pass breakup.

"I say I'm best at filling the run and hitting running backs and stopping them in their tracks," Lulu said. "I work hard in the weight room and I use my techniques to shred off blocks and give powerful hits and I have natural instincts that I could 'feel' the play develop."

While recruiting and his work in the classroom have been his top priority since the season ended, make no mistake, Lulu isn't falling behind in his training.

"I'm working a lot on my flexibility. That is the main thing because flexibility plays a huge role in mobility and speed and I'd like to be more flexible to contribute to my skill set," Lulu noted.

Lulu enjoyed a solid prep career at Homestead (Fl.) High School, but he went under recruited, so he opted to leave and head west to continue his football career.

"Most Miami boys go to California to get out and Mt. San Jacinto contacted me after I decided to go the JUCO route," Lulu said. "I miss home, but it's been fine out here. I had to make this move because of some of the negativity that is back there (in Florida City) and it allowed me just to focus on school and football."

Should Lulu get an opportunity to leave this spring/summer, he'll have four years to play three starting this fall, but he's holding onto the option of returning this fall if the right situation doesn't present itself.
