New, 4 comments

We’re wearing out the COMMIT ALARM over here. That’s four (well, actually five) in four days.

On Sunday, Tallahassee Leon High School defensive end Trey Laing got out his phone and opened Notes, and you know what that means.

(Note to selves: We need to do a post about the stuff USF is giving prospects to use on social media.)

Laing is already 6’4” and 235 pounds. He plays both defensive end positions and helped the Lions reach the Class 7A state playoffs in 2016. He finished his junior year with 33 tackles, 10.5 sacks, and 5.5 additional TFL. Here’s his junior highlight reel:

Laing has been rated as a three-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout. (247 and ESPN have not ranked him yet.) He also has a number of offers from other FBS schools like Syracuse, Indiana, Iowa State, and Cincinnati.

In addition to Trey, his brother Kyler committed to USF’s 2019 recruiting class. Kyler is also a defensive end prospect, but since signing day for him is still 18 months away, we’re not going to get too carried away with that one.
