Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County High’s Darius Dewberry has three scholarship offers, but he’s focusing on four schools. Interestingly, only two of those schools are among the three that have sent a scholarship to the linebacker.
“I’m talking to Georgia, Clemson, Florida and Kansas State,” Dewberry said. “I have offers from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, but I like all of those other four schools. I like the fans at Georgia, because they were really hyped when I went to a game there earlier. I haven’t visited the others yet, but I probably will.”
With recruiting in full swing, Dewberry knows that he’ll have to set up official visits in the near future. Still, he’s not willing to commit to any trips to schools until he’s sure that his season is over.
“I’ll probably visit those schools in a couple of months,” he said. “I’ll take an official to Georgia, too. I went to the Auburn camp this summer earlier, and they were comparing me to Carlos Dansby [current Auburn linebacker].”
Projected to play as an inside linebacker in college, Dewberry feels that his presence around the ball has been a major factor in Peach County’s success.
“I’ve been doing great,” he said. “I’ve been getting to the ball a lot. I’m a vicious playmaking linebacker like Ray Lewis that way. The whole season’s been going well, we only lost our first game, and we’re 9-1 now. We start playoffs on Friday, and hopefully we’ll be able to put it together and make a run at state.”
