VERO BEACH, Fla. -- One of the big risers in the ESPN 300 release Thursday was Sunshine State defensive end Patrick Bethel. The 2016 Under Armour All-America Game selection currently has 28 offers from many of the nation's top programs, but doesn’t receive the fanfare of prospects that reside in Dade and Broward counties.
While Bethel, the No. 62 overall prospect, might not trend on Twitter or have stories written weekly about his recruitment, a number of programs have the 6-foot-3, 249-pounder near the top of their boards.
Fast-rising ESPN 300 defensive end Patrick Bethel talked about a recent visit to LSU and Miami, which is thought to be his favorite.
