Oviedo's Corey Hobbs is not your typical All-American defensive lineman. Sure, he has an explosive first step and speed to the ball. But, Hobbs is as intelligent and well-spoken as any recruit in the country. He hopes to pursue a degree in medicine once he arrives on campus.

SAN ANTONIO --- Just because some of these guys are future college teammates, don't expect Oviedo's Corey Hobbs to take it easy on them when the East team lines up for practice this week. Hobbs (6-5, 310) is the only Florida commitment on the defensive side of the ball and his four future teammates on the East offense have to understand that once the whistle blows, it's not personal. It's business. Once the whistle blows, he goes full speed every play.

Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers get the stats and the headlines, but anyone who knows the game of football will tell you the game is won and lost in the trenches. The defensive line sets the tone for an entire defense. If the defensive line clogs up gaps it frees up the linebackers. If the line gets an effective pass rush it aides in coverage for the defensive backs.

Florida Gator commitment Corey Hobbs was bowled over by the thrashing the Gators put on Florida State last Saturday night, making it one of the worst defeats ever for the Noles. That night the crowd was electric and the atmosphere was just right. Hobbs, along with many recruits, had a great time.
