2017 Hutchinson LB/DE Ronheen Bingham talks early offers, summer focus

Things have begun to pick up for 2017 Hutchinson LB/DE Ronheen Bingham (6-2, 220). The talented prospect currently holds four offers and more could be on the way...

"My offers right now are from Arkansas State, Colorado and Charlotte," Bingham told JCFootball.com. "I haven been talking a lot with Utah State, UCF, Boise State, UAB, Toledo and Southern Illinois for now, but my coaches said a lot more schools will be coming through this spring to take a look at prospects."

As a freshman last season, Bingham worked his way into the Blue Dragons' defensive rotation, playing both outside linebacker and defensive end, and finished with 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 6.5 tackles-for-loss.

"I'm very explosive coming off the edge," Bingham noted. "I can counter off of what the offensive line is doing off of either my assignment or my reaction which allows me to get to the quaterback at times before he even gets the snap."

This offseason, Bingham has been hard at work perfecting his craft, spending a lot of time focusing on his technique and putting in time in the weight room.

"I'm always working on getting faster and stronger," Bingham said. "I want to be able to rush the quarterback with wide receiver speed and over-power the offensive linemen to stop the run game."

As a prep at Marlboro County High School in Bennettsville, South Carolina, Bingham was drawing the attention of several schools, but he was unable to get qualified, so he decided to take the JUCO route and Hutchinson seemed like the best opportunity.

"I wasn't a qualifier out of high school and it was a great opportunity to get my grades to where they needed to be and also to be apart of a great program."

Bingham is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
