The Smokey Chomp caught up with Corey Lemonier, a class of 2010 DE recruit from Hialeah, FL (Hialeah HS). In any class, top defensive ends are few and far in between, and Lemonier is one of them.

Lemonier weighs in at 6’4 and a nimble 230 pounds. He claims 24 offers, coming from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Ole Miss, and South Carolina among others. Lemonier, who clocks in at 4.9 in the forty yard dash, his best attribute is his first step. Although he doesn’t claim a leader he had this to say about some teams that are interested in him:

“I dont have a top but teams like Tennessee, Miami, Florida, Florida state, Ole Miss are all recruiting me hard.”

Corey Lemonier has been a hot commodity in the talent rich area of South Florida.

How does Lemonier feel about Tennessee?

“They’re a really good school with a good history and there going to be the team to beat next year.”

One of the things Lemonier loves about Tennessee is the coaching staff, namely running back coach Eddie Gran, who is his primary recruiter and recruits much of South Florida.

“Tennessee’s really high because Coach Gran takes his time evaluating me so if he’s taking his time that means he really wants me.”

Does Lemonier plan on making on making any visits?

“I don’t know yet. Its up to my coaches and their plans for this summer.”

Lemonier also mentioned that he’s looking for “A chance to come in and compete for early playing time” and said that he does not have a time table as to when he will make his decision.
