Buford, Ga., always seems to have Division I prospects stashed away somewhere. A second prospect, offensive guard Steven Singleton, with Division I scholarship offers has emerged for the Wolves. He has an impressive list of offers and a pair of SEC schools lead the pack for his signature.
"I have offers from Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, Kentucky and Florida," Singleton said. "I am getting mail from a bunch of other schools like Auburn, Georgia, Florida State and some others, but I have a top two and I'm not sure I'm even that interested in those schools."
The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Singleton runs the 40-yard dash in 5.1 seconds and helped lead his team to a class 2A state runner-up season after winning three straight titles.

"My top two schools are LSU and Mississippi State," Singleton said. "I have not been to any camps at colleges yet, but I am going to try to hit both of those in a few weeks and check out the school and meet the coaches and all."
As a sophomore Singelton helped pave the way for current star Notre Dame running back Darius Walker, as a junior he amassed 32 pancake blocks.
"First of all I want the school to be good academically," Singleton said. "Team chemistry is also very important to me. I want to make sure that coaches and players get along for the most part. I have to like my position coach that is key. That is a very important relationship because if he doesn't like you and you don't like him, you're probably not going to get a lot of playing time."
At 6-foot-3, 285 pounds one would think that it is a done deal that Singleton will play on the interior line in college, but that may not be the case if he chooses one particular school.
"I play offensive tackle in high school," Singleton said. "Most schools are telling me that they want me to play guard and I can understand that because of my height. Mississippi State told me that they want to try me out at tackle first. I personally don't care where I play as long as it helps the team."
