2015 GA RB staying close to home

He shares carries with one of the top running backs in the Southeast but that hasn't stopped Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek class of 2015 athlete Delvin Weems from trying to make a name for himself.
On Friday, Weems carried nine times for 181 yards and three touchdowns in Sandy Creek's game against Tampa (Fla.) Plant, showing he's also capable of helping a college program.
"With me and Eric it's a little competition," Weems said of 2015 four-star teammate Eric Swinney. "With him having all the offers and attention I have to feed off of that and keep working hard. He does the same thing and we help each other and the team stay on top."
Marshall was the first school to see something in Weems and thus far is the first school to offer. He said he's already building a relationship with the Herd coaches.
"I like the running backs coach, Thomas Brown," Weems said. "I watched his highlights and I noticed that he played a lot like me. We talk almost every day. I really like him."
Weems said he's never been to Huntington, but is hoping to visit sometime this fall. Another school in the mix is nearby Georgia Tech, which is also likely to get a visit soon.
"I've been to Georgia Tech a few times and I might go again soon," Weems said. "It's close to home and what I like about them is when I get up there I talk to the coaches and they make me feel welcome. It's not like that with every college."
Weems also said he thinks he would fit well in Tech's offense.
"I like how they run a run-orientated offense and I think that could really help me," he said. "Because if I was in that offense I would be getting the ball a lot and I'd have a chance to show what I could do."
