LEEDS, Ala. - Memphis (Tenn.) Fairley linebacker Dedrick Guy participated in the Alabama Rivals/VTO Camp last weekend. During the event, he took home some accolades.
"I just came out here and tried to compete," Guy said. "The coaches, they kind of got after me, but I turned it on and walked out of here as the linebacker MVP."
During the event, Guy had to match up with the likes of Autauga (Ala.) Autauga Academy four-star tight end O.J. Howard and Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Northridge junior running back Bo Scarbrough, who worked at wide receiver. Guy says that the two elite prospects were a lot to handle.
"They were real hard match-ups," Guy said. "Some of those guys were really big and fast, so they had an advantage but I just took the challenge, listened to the coaches, and did my best."
At this stage of his recruitment, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect is waiting for a school to fully express their interest.
"I don't have any offers yet," Guy said. "Arkansas and Kentucky have shown me some interest. Ole Miss has also checked on me."
Guy believes that his strong performance at the recent event may help lead to more interest in his services.
"I hope that what I did here helps me to get more interest and maybe some offers," Guy said. "I am just going to continue to work as hard as I can and eventually I think I will get some offers."
At the collegiate level, Guy believes he will end up being a defensive end.
