"I was told by Coach (Pete) Lembo yesterday in our meeting during my visit," Childress said about finding out about the offer. "He said ‘you are the type of kid we would like to offer'."Childress is a good sized DE at 6-3 265 but also reports a 4.66 40 time which means he brings speed off of the edge as well. His combination of size and speed means he could project as either a DE or DT at the next level.
"I am big, powerful and fast," Childress said of his strengths. "I like to get in the back field and cause some problems for the opposing offense."
Ball State is the second school to offer Childress as Akron extended an offer a few weeks back.
