Four-star linebacker E.J. Levenberry Jr. is the 19th best recruit in the 2013 recruiting class and is currently committed to Florida State. That commitment, however, is a soft one as Levenberry is still communicating with the Oklahoma Sooners, who are viewed as a team with a legitimate chance at swaying the elite LB. Michigan also has a shot at landing the Virginia recruit.
In addition to offers from those three teams, E.J. Levenberry has also been offered by Florida, LSU, Alabama, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt, UNC, Georgia, Ole Miss, Maryland, Penn State, Notre Dame, N.C. State, Ohio State, Rutgers, Virginia, and Tennessee.
The C.D. Hylton standout is regarded for his ability to make big plays against the run, as he is one of the best tacklers in the class. Due to his strength and prowess against the run, Levenberry is a bit better off on the inside of a linebacker corps, but he is certainly a high-level prospect whether outside or inside. At 6’3″, 260 pounds, the Woolbridge, Virginia recruit has good size and is one of the three best recruits in the state of Virginia.
E.J. Levenberry Jr. had a big junior year in 2011 with 151 tackles, four sacks, nine passes defended, three interceptions, and eight fumbles forced to light up the state of Virginia. He is clearly one of the top ten linebackers in the 2013 recruiting class, and it will certainly be interesting to see if Tim Kish and the Sooners can bring him to Norman. There is always the chance that happens, but he is still a ‘Nole for now; it’s just talk at the moment.
