Hargove holds two offers

Running back/linebacker Justin Hargrove is being looked at by many colleges as a potential defensive end at the next level. In fact, two schools have been impressed enough with him to offer.
"I've got offers from Pitt and Akron," said Hargrove. "Those two, plus Northwestern, Iowa, Boston College and Penn State are the schools recruiting me the hardest. It's too early to name a favorite so I'm just going to keep all my options open."
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Baldwin runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds.
"I'm not totally sure if I'm going to camp anywhere yet, but there's a good chance I'll end up camping at Pitt. It's nearby and I'd really like to do it."
What are Hargrove's main strengths as a linebacker and tailback?
"Overall I'm just a really aggressive player," said Hargrove. "I go hard from whistle to whistle and I only know one speed. The two things I'll be working on improving will be my strength and speed. I guess I'm already good in both areas, but you can never be too good."
Hargrove missed six weeks with a high ankle sprain in his junior season. He had surgery not too long ago.
"It was a pretty bad injury and I had surgery on Jan. 25 or around then I think," he said. "I've still got a cast on, but I'll be ready to go this fall."
