Pendleton Holds Two Offers
Trevon Pendleton was on his way to an impressive season for Portsmouth (OH) when a broken leg short-circuited his senior year. Pendleton, who stars on both sides of the ball, is on his way to recovery and is expected to be fully healthy in the spring. "I was having a great year and we were undefeated going into the game I was injured," Pendleton said. "I was averaging nearly 11 yards per carry, when I broke my leg on a run in the seventh game. It was a broken fibula, and I will be at 50% weight bearing by Monday, so I'm way ahead of schedule. I'm hoping to be fully recovered by spring." Pendleton, 5-foot-11, 225-pounds, plays both fullback and linebacker for Portsmouth, and is being recruited at either position. He holds two offers, from Ball State and Air Force. "I love Ball State and it's a place I felt real comfortable at," he stated. "They have new facilities, and the people are great to be around, it kind of reminds me of my hometown. Air Force is just a great program and we've been in contact almost every day for the past month. I like the style of football they play, and the attitude their players play with. It's also a special education, and I think an awful lot of the entire program." Pendleton has taken an unofficial visit, and there are more planned, as he is still hopeful of receiving more offers. "I visited Michigan State for the Wisconsin game, and really liked it," he added. "They aren't sure if they're taking a fullback, but they said I'm the only one they're recruiting at this time. I've been talking to them weekly, but I'm not sure what's going on there. I've been talking to Western Michigan and they're recruiting me as a linebacker. They want to check out my medical report, and they said they're going to offer." "This Saturday I'm going to Cincinnati for their game against Pittsburgh," he continued. "I was there last year and I like that program a lot. They see me more as an H-back, to give them a more physical blocker in their offense. They want someone that can catch the ball out of the backfield as well." Prior to his season-ending injury, Pendleton rushed 84 times for 984 yards, scoring 15 touchdowns. Defensively, he was credited with 75 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
