It's been a busy spring for three-star Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove safety Christopher Fredrick as plenty of schools have come through the Atlanta area and helped grow his offer sheet. With so many new schools on his list, Frederick said he's starting to think about which ones are standing out.
"I like Mississippi State, Syracuse and Minnesota," Frederick said. "They're all showing me a lot of interest right now."
The 6-foot, 168-pound defensive back provided his thoughts on each of the schools.
Mississippi State: "They offered back in March, they were one of the first big schools to offer me. They've been telling me they want me to come up there and see campus. I think they want me to play corner or safety. I've been talking to Coach Turner a lot and I think I'm going to go up there sometime next month. I just hope the coaching staff is what I like and the coaching style is what I like. I want to be able to fit into their defense so we'll see what they show me."
Minnesota: "I don't know much about the program. I have to get in contact with coach and see when he wants me to come for a visit. I don't think I'll be able to visit there until the fall when I can take an official because that's a long way. We have a defensive back who went there from our school, Daletavious McGhee. It would be cool to play with him again. He likes it a lot and he's trying to get me to come check it out."
Syracuse: "They're still recruiting me hard. I'm keeping in contact with Coach Reed. He just wants me to come and visit the school. I think we're developing a pretty good relationship. He's keeping in contact with me pretty much every few days so I think he's pretty cool."
Frederick said he plans to stay busy this summer with camps, but he's not quite sure how many he'll be able to pack in.
"I'm going to go to Auburn, Mississippi State and Georgia but those are the only three set in stone," he said. "I'm going to camp at Auburn and Georgia so we'll see how I do and if they think about offering me."
