Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) offensive tackle Devin Bolling was hoping to be 100-percent for his performance at the University of Virginia’s camp earlier this week, but unfortunately that was not the case. The 6-5, 270-pound prospect was able to do some things at UVa’s camp, though, and he felt he did well.
“I think did pretty good,” said Bolling, who measured in at 6-4 1/2, 270 pounds without cleats. “I was [in Charlottesville] for a senior camp, so I was just here for one day. I did a few one-on-ones and I did some agility drills, but I didn’t go through the whole camp because I have patella tendonitis and Coach Borbely told me not to push it.”
To say Bolling has had a busy summer is an understatement. He has attended many summer camps already, including Marshall, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Wake Forest. Connecticut, East Carolina, Hampton, Liberty, Marshall, Ohio and Richmond are the schools that have offered so far.
UVa certainly is very interested in Bolling, who hopes to impress the Cavaliers as well as several other major Division 1A programs with his senior season performance.
“I think they might offer me as a guard,” Bolling said of UVa. “Maybe I could get something early in the season. Coach Borbely was saying that they would probably offer me if I did well in my first two games. It might be before that, but right now Maryland, Tennessee and UVa are telling me that they want to see the first two games of my senior season. If I do well, they will offer me.”
Bolling is not in a rush to make a college commitment and in fact says he will likely wait until after his senior season to make his choice. He does not claim a favorite at this point.
Asked his opinion of UVa, Bolling said, “I like it. It is a nice school and everything.”
Bolling sees action at right and left tackle for Brookville, but he is versatile. Several college coaches believe he could play anywhere on the offensive line, so guard or center could be possibilities on the college level.
A hard worker as well as a talented athlete, Bolling, who dropped 40 pounds from what his playing weight was...
