West Coast Prospect Talks About Southern Football Passion

Four-star California D-line prospect Eddie Vanderdoes is looking South when it comes to his collegiate football home.  With scholarship offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss and Tennessee… no wonder.

According to The Sporting News, Vanderdoes — and this is why we’ve got a recruiting story on the home page and not simply on our Recruiting Pageopened up about the differences he’s already seen between West Coast players and southern players:

 

“It’s almost like a culture change being around the southern guys.  If you compare them to the California and West Coast guys, they just take it a lot more personally.  They’re more physical.  When they’re going against you in drills, it just seems like they have a bigger purpose—that they’re representing everything that backs them up back home.”

 

Such a comment should come as no surprise to anyone who’s experienced the madness surrounding high school football in the Deep South.  There’s as much interest in some high school rivalries as their is in some college games.
