Coach Speak: Da'Shawn Hand

WOODBRIDGE, VA. -- Da'Shawn Hand is the top defensive player in the country. After receiving close to 100 scholarship offers, the Woodbridge (Va.) defensive end recently named a top three.

Da'Shawn Hand has been on the radar of college coaches since his freshman year of high school.

Now, he is entering the homestretch of his recruitment. The 6-foot-5, 262-pound Hand is recently named a top three of Alabama, Florida and Michigan – in no particular order.

Woodbridge head coach Karibi Dede spoke with FOX Sports Next about Hand's game, future and more.
