Culp holds down the middle for Feather River
"I just wanted to get out and get a fresh start and take a chance on getting a D-1 scholarship," Culp told JCFootball.com. "Coming out here was good. It was a change of pace for me and I really have enjoyed my time here."
As a redshirt freshman last fall, Culp posted 35 tackles and five sacks from his defensive tackle position.
"I can play nose (tackle) or the three (technique), but I mainly played three," Culp said. "My quickness and my get-off are both what helps me be successful on the field. I'm working hard on my strength this spring and summer so that I can hold up better against the run, but I was fine in that area last year."
Recruiting has begun to pick up for the talented interior defensive line prospect with one Conference USA school verbally offering him.
"Central Florida offered me, but it's only verbally right now," Culp said. "They want to get a look at my grades for this past semester and to look over my transcripts a little more before they make it official.
"Auburn and Washington State have both told me they like me a lot and that they want to see my grades before they offer, but they are both close to offering too. Other than that, mainly schools have just been sending mail and telling me they are keeping an eye on me and want to find out more about me."
Culp says he's on pace to graduate in December and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
