Lynden Trail is a four-star defensive end prospect from Miami Booker T. Washington High School in south Florida. So far he and his teammates are off to a 4-0 start with a huge game looming this weekend.
"We play Northwestern on Saturday," Trail said. "I am watching film of them right now. I am looking at the little things the offensive linemen do, watching for tendencies, that kind of thing. It really doesn't get bigger than this for us.
"I think I have played well so far this season. We have played really well as a unit. We have got to get to Teddy (Bridgewater). It's going to be tough because he's in shotgun almost the entire game. We have respect for them. They have respect for us. It's going to be a great game."
So far this fall Trail has not set up any official visits. But at this time there are five schools he favors for visits with one leader in that group.
"Florida is still my top team. I like coach (Urban) Meyer. We talk all the time and have a really good and close relationship. I am also thinking that at this point I will visit Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee and USC."
Being from Miami and with the start to the season that the Hurricanes had had, are they still in the mix with Trail?
"Of course they are. That's kind of the rough draft right now. Miami is having a good season and they are up there to. I am also thinking about Michigan and Florida International."
Trail plays on taking all his visits after the football season.
