Baltimore (Md.) Dunbar prospect Joshua Alaeze has changed positions. The move for the 6-foot-2, 240-pounder has caught the eye of recruiters already.
"I made the move from linebacker to defensive end," he said. "It's come pretty natural for me since I'm quick and fast. A lot of people had already told me I'd grow into a defensive end in college.
"When I first moved early in the year I didn't really know how to play. Now I'm pretty good against the pass and taking on blocks in the run."
Alaeze and Dunbar are 4-1 on the year up to this point.
What are colleges saying about his position?
"I have most schools looking at me as a defensive end now," he said. "I'm getting a lot of interest since the season has started. Louisville and UNLV are looking at me. My coach said a lot more schools are talking to him too."
The three-star prospect claims five offers from Akron, New Mexico, Old Dominion, Rhode Island and Towson at this point.
"I haven't taken any visits though yet, I'm focusing on my season. I plan on getting more offers after the season and then I'll see whatever I get."
