Focus '09: Leron Eaddy

River Hill High School made it to the Maryland State Championship game in part due to a monstrous backfield combination with Michael Campanaro, Malek Redd and Zach Martin, however Leron Eaddy was a force on the defensive side of the ball that also played a huge part in their success.

Leron Eaddy, a 5-foot-10, 186-pound athlete from Clarksville, Md., plays linebacker for River Hill High School, however he will most likely made the switch to strong safety at the next level given his short frame and 4.55 speed. While Eaddy was only able to camp at one school because he spent half the summer ill, he did take advantage of the time he spent this weekend at the X-Treme X-Posure Combine in Somerset, N.J., an event that certainly looks like it could become a mainstay in the high school recruiting world.

"While I was at the camp this weekend I had coaches from Hofstra and UCLA come over and talk to me about my performance," Eaddy said. "I was also told by one of the people that ran the camp that the UCLA coaches thought highly of me, so that was exciting to hear. I thought I did well and the camp was really good, so it was nice to get some exposure early from it."

"Southern Miss, Temple and Connecticut are the three schools that have been giving me the most serious looks early at this point," Eaddy explained. "I camped at Temple this summer and it went really well. I liked the campus a lot and was already very familiar with it because my sister attends Temple. The coaches there are very enthusiastic and down to Earth, so I liked that about them. North Carolina is another school that I really want to hear from because I have a lot of family near there and from the research I have done I really like what they have to offer both academically and on the football field with the new coaching staff that was just brought in."

As a sophomore, Eaddy played a major role in River Hill going 13-1 with a state championship berth, contributing 95 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. He was named honorable mention All-State. Recommended Stories
