A rising sophomore athlete has turned into one of the region’s hottest names in recruiting.
Two and a half weeks ago Kentucky became just the second school, and first power five program, to offer Treyveon Longmire a scholarship. Since that morning spring practice in Lexington, Longmire has picked up five power five offers.
The first post-Kentucky offer came a week later during a trip to Louisville. Scott Satterfield rolled out the red carpet to offer Corbin’s explosive athlete. A week later Tennessee ponied up and offered a scholarship. That was followed by offers from Florida State, West Virginia and Purdue over a three-day span.
With three high school football seasons left, it’s safe to say he’ll be one of the state’s most sought after athletes in quite some time. So far, he’s earned every bit of attention. As a true freshman he rushed for 611 yards (8.9 yards per carry) and four touchdowns. He also caught 20 passes for 524 yards and seven touchdowns, including a 59-yarder in the Redhounds’ state championship victory at Kroger Field.
Longmire’s recruitment is far from over. While the process unfolds, remember that only Western Michigan offered before Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow.
