Desir focused on playoffs

North Miami Beach (Fla.) athlete Ritchy Desir says that in recent months, his recruitment has remained status quo.
"I haven't really heard from any new schools," Desir said. "It is still the same schools - FIU, Western Michigan, Syracuse, Kansas, and New Mexico."
At this point, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete doesn't have those schools in any kind of pecking order.
"Everybody is on the same level right now," Desir said. "I haven't really done anything about it during my season. I am going to worry about when our season is over."
On the field, Desir has contributed to North Miami Beach as a quarterback, safety, kicker, punter, and return man. The Chargers (8-3) face Weston Cypress Bay in the Class 6A South Regional Semifinals on Friday. Desir said his team's focus is on winning that game and continuing their march towards a state championship.
"We are trying to improve from what we did last year, I think last year we had a disappointing season going just 4-6, that isn't like Chargers football," Desir said. "So we are trying to make a name for ourselves this year."
When his season has wraps up, the three-star athlete intends to turn his attention towards his recruitment taking a few official visits and learning more about his list of options. When he sits down to make his final decision, he is looking for the right opportunity at the next level.
"I want to go somewhere that I can feel comfortable playing and that I will have a good opportunity at," Desir said. "I want to play safety, but I am not really sure about it because it will be about what that team needs. If they need a receiver, then I will play that spot for them."
Desir has yet to earn a qualifying standardized test score.
