The nation's top defensive tackle has offers from just about every major college football program in the nation. Schools in the state and outside of the state are recruiting him hard. Does he have a leader?
At 6-foot-4 and 285-pounds DeMario Pressley, of Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds. He has offers from every school in-state, plus schools like Florida State, Georgia, Miami and others.
"I still don't have a leader at this point," said Pressley. "I've been concentrating on helping my team out right now and on my senior year. Those are the things at the front of my mind. Recruiting is definitely important, but it's kind of in the backseat until after the year."

Pressley had intended on going to the Georgia-Tennessee game in Knoxville last Saturday (a 41-14 Georgia win) but decided not to. He has considered attending the South Carolina-LSU game this weekend amongst others, but hasn't set anything yet.
"I haven't set up my official visits yet," he said. "There are a lot of places I'm interested in -- the in-state schools plus the bigger programs across the country. Choosing which schools to take officials to will be hard enough. I don't even want to think about what it's going to be like having to choose one school to go to for four years."
After losing two games outside of the conference schedule, Dudley now boasts a 6-2 record.
Pressley is still listing North Carolina, NC State, Florida State, Miami, Oklahoma, Georgia and Tennessee as his favorites. He hopes to schedule official visits soon.
