Porchia Getting Ready For Offseason

Porchia Getting Ready For Offseason

Scout.com talked with 2012 prospect Devon Porchia from Gilman School in Baltimore, MD. The talented two-way prospect has two offers and may have more before summer is over.

Devon Porchia (6'1"/200) is looking to build on a solid junior season. He has received two offers, both from the Big East. He has a few plans for the spring set and talks about what he wants to improve on this offseason before he hits the summer camps.

"I have been working out hard and participating in track," said Porchia. "I am hoping to continue to hear from schools and get a few more offers."

Porchia currently has offers from Pittsburgh and Rutgers. He is getting strong interest from a few other schools as well.

"Besides Pittsburgh and Rutgers I hear a lot from Connecticut, Virginia and Virginia Tech. I am hoping to hear from some other schools in the south. I like the southern schools like the SEC schools."

Like seasons past, Porchia's high school, Gilman, goes to camps as a team. Porchia isn't sure which camps they will do as a team but he does know a couple stops he will make this month.

"I will be getting to Pitt for their spring game and I am doing a Nike camp on April 30th. After that I am not sure yet."

Porchia knows that he has interest from coaches because of his ability but that doesn't mean he isn't working hard on improving.

"I feel I'm a strong competitor and I try to be the first to the ball every play. I want to standout on defense and make big plays. Some of the areas to improve on are my overall fundamentals and footwork. I also want to work on my reads and my drops in coverage."

When Porchia does get on a few campuses this summer he will be focusing on a few things.

"My degree is most important to me. I want the school to be strong in my major. As far as football I want to play for a competitive team and have a good relationship with my coaches. It is important to me to be comfortable. I also want to be able to make an impact there. I don't mind redshirting but I do want a chance to play and make an impact while I am there."
