Charlotte Christian lining up at linebacker

Charlotte Christian could have one of the better linebacking corps in the state with the transfer in of rising senior David Durham from Austin, Tex. Durham's addition to the team's defense has prompted coach Jason Estep to strongly consider running a 3-4 alignment to get four LBs on the field at the same time.

Durham is a 6-foot-3, 228-pound force who has already been offered by and committed to Ohio State. He would be joined in the foursome inside by the heavily recruited Ty Linton and outside by Kelby Brown, along with Matt Hall.

Linton in particular is a major recruiting target. According to Estep, he already has offers from Duke, North Carolina, Virginia, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Syracuse, Illinois, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt and Miami of Ohio.

Brown has been offered by Indiana and Syracuse.--Stan Olson

Interesting, that most big time transfer players in the past went to Indy. They must be losing there recruitng budget with the cutbacks at CMC.

Durham went to Christian in 7th grade before moving out to Austin so no suprise in him returning to Christian. Durham, Linton, and Brown already have BCS offers in hand so I dont see how the Knights wouldnt have the best linebacking corps in the state, possibly Southeast.
