Fullback/linebacker prospect Daniel Drummond could be on the verge of a major scholarship. Drummond, 6-3 and 232 pounds, is supposed to speak with the LSU coaches today and he hopes this could be that big offer he has been looking for. He recently received his first two from Marshall and Troy. But an offer from the national champs could open the flood games.
"I am suppose to talk with them and this could potentially be an offer," Drummond said. "We'll see. I sure hope it will be. I am going to speak with Arkansas as well."
Drummond played fullback and middle linebacker in 2007 for West Hall High School. This season he will play fullback and defensive end for Flowery Branch High School.
"I had a really good spring and just improved overall. I started playing defensive end and got better at everything. At fullback I am running the ball better and running with a lower pad level. I like putting my hand down and rushing the passer. It's a little easier than playing linebacker.
Drummond grew up a huge fan of Auburn and the Tigers have made his short list along with Georgia Tech and LSU.
"I have been an Auburn fan since birth I guess. It has kind of been my dream but I know things have changed since I am talking to other schools and I'll just have to wait and see how everything works out.
"Georgia Tech likes me on offense as their "B" back. I would love to run the ball there, it's close to home (45 minutes from his house) and you can get a great education."
"LSU needs a fullback and the way they are talking they don't have anyone. They need someone next year and that would be huge for me.
"As far as a position or offense versus defense I would play anywhere a school needs me but I would say I probably prefer offense.
"Playing time is huge and I would like to stay close to home."
Drummond has seen Auburn, Georgia, Vandy, and Wake Forest. He will camp at Georgia Tech.
"I know I will camp at two to three other schools but I just don't know my schedule yet. I know I will visit LSU for sure if they offer. I would set up something immediately."
Drummond is also the state champion is the discuss (177'9") and had the best throw of any class in the Peach State. He had the second longest throw in the shot put (55'9).
