Source: Norfolk DE/OLB Visits The Bay Area


Per a source, Norfolk defensive end/outside linebacker Lynden Trail has had a over a dozen NFL visits that include the Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals and most recently the Oakland Raiders.

Trail left Booker T. Washington High School in Miami to play for Urban Meyer at Florida. A four-star recruit according to Rivals.com and Scout.com, he was sought after by LSU, Florida State, Purdue, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Tennessee and USC, among others. After Meyer left Florida, Trail decided to move on from the Gators, and ended up at Norfolk State. He finished his senior season with 91 tackles (11th in MEAC), 11.5 tackles for loss (17th in MEAC) and 5.0 sacks (tied for 17th in MEAC).

The former 6-foot-6 and 262-pound MEAC star played 3-4 outside linebacker and also lined up with his hand in the dirt and even spent a little time at tight end. He possesses an enormous wingspan and is smooth in space with the ability to cover a lot of ground quickly. Finesse and furiousness go hand in hand watching him play.
