TAMPA, Fla. - Fort Pierce (Fla.) Westwood two-way lineman Inuka Rhaheed participated in Saturday morning's Badger Sports Elite Lineman Camp, which was part of their 7-on-7 event held at the University of South Florida. During the lineman camp, the 6-foot-3, 280-pound lineman worked at both offensive guard and defensive tackle.
"I learned that I need to work more on my hands and using them the right way," Rhaheed said. "I also learned that I need to stop rushing all the time and to sometimes take my time when doing things."
At the next level, Rhaheed is open to playing at either spot - offensive guard or defensive tackle.
"Wherever they need me, that is where I will play," Rhaheed said. "I like both positions."
One school has already verbally offered the talented lineman.
"Buffalo is my only offer so far," Rhaheed said. "They told me that I have a full scholarship from them to play defensive tackle. I talked with Coach Ernest Jones."
An in-state school is also expressing an interest in his services.
"I have also heard from South Florida a little bit," Rhaheed said. "They like me as a defensive tackle. I came (to USF) for a Junior Day a couple weeks ago. It was fun. I learned a lot about them. I got to meet the coaches and learn about the team."
During the visit, Rhaheed got to spend a good bit of time with USF assistant coach Kevin Patrick. He said that Patrick, like Skip Holtz, had a simple message.
"He said that they are trying to win a BCS Championship," Rhaheed said.
Rhaheed claims no leader and intends to take his time with the process.
