Vols Lead for Trimble
Dale Trimble, the 5-foot-11, 165-pound three-star cornerback from Gadsden City High School in Gadsden City, Ala., has helped lead his team to an 8-2 record with 56 tackles, 12 passes broken up, two punts blocked and one interception. "I can break on the ball well," Trimble said. "I'm a good tackler too and I have good technique. I play pretty physical." He says he can bench 215-pounds and squat 330. "I want to bulk up and get stronger and bigger," he said. "I need to dominate more and tackle harder." Trimble, ranked as the No. 105 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, now favors Tennessee slightly over Kentucky, Ole Miss, Auburn and Mississippi State. All of his favorites have offered as well as Clemson and Southern Miss. The only official visit that Trimble has scheduled thus far is to Kentucky on Dec. 3. "I want to find out more about them," he said about the Wildcats. "They put corners in the league and they are in the SEC. It's also a good academic school." Trimble says the Wildcats are recruiting him the hardest. "They call me all the time and always check up on me," he said. "They are really trying to get to know me." Growing up, Trimble says he followed Auburn and he's actually the God-brother to former Tigers running back Carnell Williams, who now plays for the Tampa Bay Bucs. "I really liked them because he went there," Trimble said about Williams. "He really liked it and he says that Auburn is a great place to play football. I stayed with him during the summer and we talk a lot." Trimble was also in attendance to see Auburn beat Ole Miss 33-20 on Oct. 31. "It was really intense," he said about the game. "I've always loved Auburn and it was cool to see them win. It was cool because people knew my name there and who I was. It's a great atmosphere." Another plus for the Tigers is that they are only two and half-hours from his home. "I don't know if the location is gonna matter," he said. "That's why I want to take my visits and see how I feel at each place." Despite his connection to Auburn, he says his top choice is Tennessee. "I love Tennessee," he said. "It's a great place." Trimble has already attended two Vols game this season (against UCLA and Auburn). "The atmosphere is wild," he said. "The people there are super nice, but the fans are nuts. It's great. They've got tons of people tailgating all day and having a good time. I've never seen that many people tailgating before." The Vols were Trimble's first scholarship offer. "The coaches are doing great," he said. "(Defensive coordinator) Monte Kiffin is a smart man and is a great coach. He's got a lot of connections and he knows how to get you to the league." During the summer Trimble attended camps at Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Ole Miss. Of those, only the Tide haven't offered. He says he's being recruited by Rebels defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Tyrone Nix "I like coach Nix," he said. "He's originally from Alabama and he's been to my school. "He's a great coach and they have a pretty good defense," he said. "The team is still young and they'll be getting better." Trimble says he doesn't have a timeframe for making a decision. "I don't know," he said. "When I feel like it, I'll do it. "I really want to play," he said about his factors in choosing a school. "I want a fair chance to get on the field and that's the number one thing for me." Trimble plans to major in architecture and reports a 2.8 core GPA and took the ACT on Oct. 24.
