Junior Lamont Baldwin of Washington (D.C.) Archbishop Carroll has all the tools that college recruiters are looking for in a receiver at the next level. And as he impresses on the field during his junior season, schools from across the country are beginning to take notice.
Baldwin, 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, is happy with how his recruitment is progressing.
"So far it's good and exciting," said Baldwin. "It's exciting to see what teams send me mail, emails and come to he school to see me."
Considering the long list of schools that are sending Baldwin correspondence, the big receiver has definitely been busy.
"I'm hearing from Nebraska, Penn State, Pitt, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin, Boston College, Rutgers, Maryland and Texas A&M so far," said Baldwin, who has not taken any visits to this point, but will take at least one in November. "I'm going to Penn State during Thanksgiving."
One the field, Baldwin is seeing time at wide receiver and free safety this season and has totaled four touchdowns so far.
"The season is going great," said Baldwin. "We are 5-0 and seem to be on our way to the playoffs. Position wise I could be having a better year, but our starting quarterback broke his collarbone in the first game, and our second string is just now understanding the game. We are getting our timing together now. But I can't complain, because it's the first time I'm 5-0 in high school. I'm having a good season, but there is room for improvement."
So what parts of his game would Baldwin still like to improve?
"I have to work on my route running, catching, getting in and out of my breaks and finishing plays," said Baldwin.
