2018 DT getting plenty of attention

Every year, every school has one consistent recruiting need and that's defensive linemen. No school never has enough which is why they are such commodities in the recruiting process. One of those commodities in 2018 is D'Andre Litaker from Murfreesboro.

The 6-3, 290 pound 4-star defensive tackle already has four offers highlighted by Tennessee and LSU. A native of Tennessee, the Vol offer left an impression.

“It means a lot to me,” Litaker said. “I have accomplished one of my goals. I'm staying humbled, working hard and hoping on more to come.

“I am surprised to have offers this early. God blessed me with the talent I have and I'm using it.”

Saturday, Litaker was at Tennessee's Orange and White game and again left impressed.

“I say it all the time the fans that are so involved with everything the football team does and it's just awesome,” Litaker said.

It's Litaker's size and athletic ability that has schools around the SEC coming to Oakland High School this spring. But Litaker knows he still very much a work in progress.

“I'm really trying to work on my explosion off the ball. That's what I'm focused on the most and you always work on finishing better.

“I like Haloti Ngata of the Lions a lot. I watch him all the time. I like the way he plays and that's my role model on the field.”

Litaker has plenty of time before making a decision. However, he's getting an early start having seen Tennessee multiple times along with Georgia. Two of the places he hopes to see again in the coming months.

“I want to go to LSU and I want to get back to Georgia to visit. I plan on being back at Tennessee in June for camp,” Litaker said.

“I'm just enjoying the process. I remain humble about it. I keep God first and bless him for what he has given me.”
