Mexico, Missouri athlete Dedrick Harrington is receiving plenty of interest on the recruiting trail. And the phone at the Harrington house never seems to stop ringing.
"I get calls all the time," Harrington said. "Things have been going good around here. Now that the basketball recruiting season has opened up, the phone rings all the time."
Harrington is being recruited by some of the top schools in country for football and is hearing from several top programs for basketball.
"Lately, the football schools I'm hearing from are Missouri, Arizona, Purdue, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame, UCLA and Arkansas. Probably a few others, but those are the main ones. In basketball Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Mississippi and Illinois are the ones calling."
Most schools are recruiting Harrington for his pure athletic ability, but the main positions are wide receiver and defensive back. "Most of them just want me to come and we'll determine what position later."
