Hart talks recruiting

Holmes DE Larry Hart (6-1 ,255) had an excellent sophomore season and he's parlayed that into several offers. He's visited one of his favorites and he's scheduled at least one more visit. JCFootball.com spoke to the big pass-rusher recently and he talked about recruiting and where things stand at this point and time.

"I had a good season," Hart said. "I worked really hard in my 'get off' and how I used my hands and stuff like that this past summer and it really helped me a lot this year."

Hart finished with seven sacks, 11 tackles-for-loss and 56 tackles from his weakside end position.

"I have the speed to pursue on the backside and I can get after the quarterback and force some bad throws," Hart said. "I'd say whoever ends up getting me to commit will get a all-around end who can play the run and rush the passer."

Hart recently took a visit to Southeast Louisiana over the Thanskgiving holiday weekend and said he enjoyed his time on campus.

"Oh man it was a lot of fun," Hart said. "I had a lot of fun just hanging out with the players and meeting the coaches. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed myself.

"I also went to Central Arkansas last weekend and that was fun and then I will be at Georgia Southern this coming weekend."

Since Hart can sign on December 19th, he wants to make a decision soon, but some other schools ahve made contact and have told him they would like him to consider coming on an official visit.

"UAB offered me and I had a visit scheduled with them, but I cancelled it," Hart said. "I'm not sure if I will take a visit there or not, but right now that one is off.

"Louisville just called me this week and they said they are very interested in bringing me in for a look and so I might take one there next weekend, but like I said, it's up in the air at this point."

Wherever Hart ends up he plans to enroll for spring quarter and will have three years to play two when he steps on campus.

We'll continue to follow his recruitment and update things as they change.
