It isn’t clear what college Cam Large‍ is going to end up at yet. In fact, it isn’t even clear what position the 2020 Massachusetts athlete will play at the next level yet.

“I think it all depends on the needs of the recruiting class,” Noble & Greenough School head coach Panos Voulgaris says.

“There are schools recruiting him as a tight end. There are schools recruiting him as a defensive lineman and some that are recruiting him purely as an athlete they would evaluate as time goes on to see where the best fit is.”

Notre Dame offered the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder as a strongside defensive end during his visit to the Irish’s Junior Day last month.

“He’s really strong, really physical, tackles well,” Voulgaris says of Large. “He can move well. I think he’s a good fit on that strongside because he can rough up tight ends and also do a good job rushing the passer as well as being a plugger in the run game.”

Large also has offers from schools like Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, LSU, Duke, Rutgers and Boston College among several others.

“He’s a real pleasure to coach,” says Voulgaris, who arrived at Noble and Greenough from Episcopal School in Virginia before the 2018 season. “I really enjoyed working with him this past season.

“He’s one of those kids that does everything that’s asked of him. He’ll play every down of every game on both sides of the ball and on special teams. That makes him a great high school player and somebody who is going to transition into the college game very smoothly because he’s willing to do whatever a coach asks of him and he’s pretty damn good.”

Voulgaris calls Large a “down-to-earth kid.”

“He’s a high-energy kid,” the coach adds. “The type of kid who brings a lot of energy to practice. The guys on the team follow him. He’ll be a two-time captain here at Noble. He’s got those leadership qualities. Teammates like to follow him.

“He sets a great example being the first guy to practice, he stays afterward in the weight room. He’s that type of kid.”

The similarities between Noble & Greenough and Notre Dame could help the Irish’s pursuit.

“Cam chose to go here because he wants an outstanding education with competitive football,” says Voulgaris. “I think the same will go when he chooses his college option.

“He’s going to want to go to a place where he can get a premier education with big-time football and obviously Notre Dame meets that criteria.”
