MIDWEST RECRUITING: Burney’s FEARSOME FIVE-PACK of outside linebackers in Hoosierland you need to know about
Cam Williams (Merrillville Andrean) — Best defensive player left on the recruiting board in the senior class, just a specimen sideline-to-sideline….can you say DOWNRIGHT DYNAMIC?
• Deciding between Indiana, Purdue and Arizona.
Joey Schmidt (Carmel) — Maybe the highest football IQ of any linebacker in the state, won a state title as a sophomore, recorded 85 tackles and five sacks last season.
Chase Triplett (Michigan City) — This Purdue commit represents tremendous value in his recruiting stock, his closing speed on tackles is second-to-none in the state’s linebacker ranks (posted a whopping 120 tackles last year).
Richie Hagarty (Indianapolis Cathedral) — Total thoroughbred at the position with a chiseled frame, MEGA motor and MAD SKILLZ on blitz packages.
• Committed to Miami (OH).
Ty Wise (Carmel) — The No. 1 outside ‘backer in the junior class, the upside on this kid is OFF THA CHAIN!!!
