Culp mans the middle of the Feather River 'D'
"There are a lot of other schools that have been sending mail to me and contacting my coaches, but right now I haven't talked to any of them."
Culp was a standout prep in Great Falls, South Carolina and signed with D-2 Newberry College where he redshirted in 2008.
"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 during the spring. "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."
Culp is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
Feather River begins their season on September 11th when they take on West Hills in a road game.
