Name: Lavon Hooks
School: N' East CC
Position: Defensive Tackle
Size: 6' 4", 285-pounds
Recruitment: Ole Miss (offer)
Scout.com Ranking: NR
Scout.com evaluation: The Atlanta resident inked with N' East
CC after being placed there by former Ole Miss coach, Houston Nutt. Lavon's
freshman season at N' East CC he gathered 30 tackles, 3 sacks, and 3 1/2"
tackles for losses while manning the defensive tackle position in seven games
The high school film that is provided below shows him playing tight end and defensive end/tackle. He shows good movement and athleticism for a man his size. Hooks' athleticism can be displayed on the hardwood as he also plays hoops for N' East CC. Lavon will need to work on his leverage and bend for the next level, but he definitely has the tools to play on the D1 level.
