Recently at the Elite 11 Camp, Episcopal High School athlete Devin Malloy (2023, 6’0, 170 LBS) put on a great showing for the scouts. He is a utility man who mainly plays defensive back and wide receiver, learning to play both of those positions. So far, he has received some attention from Division I teams, with Boston College as the only one to give him an offer to this point.
Devin reports that he is proud of how he played at the camp. He says, “I drove down here this morning, ready to compete, and ready to make my mark here. I think that I left here with knowing what I need to work on and what I excel at, so I’m very happy about that.”
Devin also talks about how his offseason approach has changed since the Covid-19 pandemic hit. “I think it has changed my mindset in a lot of ways. It is harder to truly improve when you don’t have guys to hit, but I adapt. I think it has forced me to educate myself, and watch a lot of film. I’ve gotten a lot of knowledge about the players on other teams, how to stop them, and things of that nature,” Devin explains.
When looking forward to the spring football season, Devin is excited to just get out there and compete once again.
“It doesn’t matter if it is one game, three games, whatever, I’m just excited to get back out there and show everyone what I can do on the field,” he elaborates. Devin wants college coaches to know that he is a well-rounded player, both intellectually and physically, saying, “I’m an explosive athlete who is good with coverage, and I like to learn more about the game. I’m smart and someone who really is versatile, and I really like to get in there and hit guys.”
Devin has a single offer from Boston College, but he reports that he has been talking to multiple schools. Boston College has seen a large amount of success recently. Playing in the ACC, it is tough for them to get a ton of exposure from national media, but they have quietly been building a very solid program, making bowl games in recent years.
He also says that he has been working hard to remedy some of the issues coaches have flagged with him, and he wants to be the best player possible in the eyes of recruiters. For Devin, the question is not of whether or not he will make it to the next level, but where he will land. He has a bright future in football, and as a sophomore, he has a lot of room to improve and raise his stock as high as possible.
