Two new offers for Trail
The offers are coming in quickly now for Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington defensive end Lynden Trail. The long, athletic defender is up to 15 offers and most recently, he picked up two from the Big Ten and one of the two really stood out.
"I have two new offers," Trail said. "Michigan and Purdue. Michigan has always caught my eye and what not, maybe because of their defense and Michigan has always had somebody coming into the [National Football] League.
"I was hearing that they have a very big campus. I was thinking that going out of state wouldn't be a big deal and overall they have definitely caught my eye."
There is speculation that Trail, with a Hurricane offer in hand, will be tough to pull out of the south Florida region. However, trail has maintained that he is keeping his options open. In turn, he is considering the Purdue offer as well.
"I'm interested in almost any and every D-I school that offers me," he said. "I can't just say I'm not interested in Purdue because I don't know much about them. But I'm willing to learn more about Purdue."
Next Sunday, Trail will be attending the Nike Training Camp at the University of Miami. As a player with still a lot to learn about the position, Trail is looking at it as an opportunity to improve on some things personally.
"I'm guessing it's a camp so they'll probably be teaching me technique," he said. "I'm new to defense so other than the speed rush, I don't know that many moves. The speed rush and the spin move, those are really the only two moves I have so it'll be good to work on some more moves."
With blazing speed at his size and length, Trail has a world of upside and probably will continue to see offers pour in as his senior season approaches.
