Lakes 2019 WR De’Angelo Hardy talked his offseason work with North Shore Elite 7on7, Power 5 programs he’s been in touch with and I also got head coach Jordan Eder’s thoughts on Hardy.
Lake Park, IL
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 190 lbs
LPI: Tell me about what you’ve been doing this season to take your game to the next level. Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason or do you play 7on7?
DH: Throughout the season I pushed myself and others around me to go harder in practice and in the weight room. In the off season I run track and play 7on7 for north shore elite.
LPI: What are your greatest strengths on the field?
DH: One of my biggest strengths on the field is my athleticism. Also, jump balls are one of my specialties. Another one of my greatest strengths on the field is playmaking.
LPI: Do you have any offers? If not, which schools have shown serious interest in you?
DH: I have no offers. But schools that have shown interest are University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, Western Michigan and Cincinnati University.
LPI: Do you have any planned visits set? If so, where at?
DH: I don’t have any planned visits. But I have visited Iowa State and Michigan State previously.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
DH: The first one is Ethan Greenfield. The reason I said him is because he has a good head for the game and he’s always in the right spot to make plays. The second person I want to say is Dylan DeAngelo. He is always working hard to improve his game and has great football IQ. Probably the smartest kid every time he steps on the field. Also these two will never ever back down from anyone.
Lakes Head Coach Jordan Eder on Hardy on and off the field
“D’Lo is an incredible football talent. The best things about him is that his character and work ethic both match his ability. That’s what makes him special. One of the best athletes I have coached.”
