Four-star Miami defensive end
Eric Moncur is keeping his
recruitment close to the vest, but acknowledges that the hometown Hurricanes
may be tough to beat.
"I'm not really concentrating on that right now," he
said. "I'm going to wait until the end of the season, then figure everything
out. But Miami's definitely one of the schools I'm thinking about. I like
them a lot. They're the home team, and I grew up following them."
The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder is a member of the Rivals.com
Florida Top 100 team and one of the nation's top-rated
weakside defensive ends. As a
junior, he recorded 92 tackles and 20 sacks at Carol City High School.
Through four games as a senior, he's off to another good start with six
"Not too many people are passing against us,
either," he said. "They've all been running the ball, and running away from
me. I'm getting double-teamed a lot, but I'm still getting the job done,
carrying out my assignments and making a lot of plays. I just always go
all-out after the ball."
That's one of the traits, along with his 4.6 speed,
that has made him one of the nation's most coveted recruits.
His list of offers now includes Florida, Florida
State, Miami, Georgia, N.C. State, Rutgers, Michigan State, Tennessee and
Auburn. "There may be a few others," he said, "but those are the main ones
right now. It's hard to keep up with them all."
Moncur said he hasn't attended any games yet this
season, but is planning to see Miami play UConn on Oct. 5.
"After that, I don't know," he said. "I may not go
to any others and just wait for my official visits. But I have no idea where
those will be right now. Like I said, I'm going to sit down and figure that
out at the end of the season."
