Carroll's Drue Tranquill one to watch

Carroll safety Drue Tranquill has worked to raise his recruiting stock throughout the early summer.

More importantly, Chargers coach Doug Dinan said, the senior-to-be has been diligent about fulfilling all his obligations.

"He is looking to, and has attended, many camps for exposure," Dinan said. "He's also been a part of the AWP 7-on-7 team, and that also gives him exposure to different groups. But he's been very diligent in the fact that you have to attend a lot of the one-day camps."

That has helped Tranquill, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect who projects at either safety or outside linebacker, net plenty of interest and offers.

Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota have offered Tranquill a scholarship, as has Cincinnati and a number of Mid-American Conference schools. Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Ohio, Miami (Ohio) and Toledo are on his offer list, Dinan said.

Tranquill has also fielded interest from Notre Dame and Michigan and attended camps at most, if not all of those institutions, Dinan said.

"He's also done a great job of not only attending those camps, but doing a nice job of maintaining focus on the team at the same time and not missing a ton of things, of activities that Carroll football is being involved in," Dinan said. "It's positive on both ends."
