Redemptorist High School in Baton Rouge is known for producing standout football players and this upcoming year's senior class is especially talented. Lael Collins, Jeremy Hill, Denzeil Warner, Nico Talbert, and Corey Trim are all members of the Redemptorist Class of 2011 and the quintet of college prospects plans on leading the Wolves to a 3A state title this fall.
Trim, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound corner, is the best defensive back for the Wolves and he caught the eye of SMU recruiter Jeff Reinebold at the Redemptorist/Zachary scrimmage several days ago. PonyStampede.com recently caught up with Trim to find out what's going on with his recruitment.
"I'm hearing from SMU, Louisiana Tech, Colorado, Utah State, Southern Mississippi, Tulane, Florida State, and Memphis," said Trim. "I don't know much about SMU right now, but I'm hearing about them."
Redemptorist is a perennial football power in Louisiana and the Wolves advanced to the 3A quarterfinals last year before getting upset on the road by Catholic-New Iberia.
"We didn't think we'd lose that game," Trim said. "I'm working to get better every day. I like to go hard every play - that's how I'd describe my game. We need to get our defense straight with our linebackers, because one of our starting linebackers got injured and we need to do some work with the new linebacker.
"I'm going to be training this summer to get faster. I'm going to a Miami camp in June and also to the LSU camp. I might make some more camps too."
