Look out for Earls

Macon (Ga.) Central wide receiver Corey Earls is one of those prospects that made a name for himself at a NIKE camp. He attended the NIKE camp in Athens in May and has already picked up his first offer already.
"I have an offer from Marshall already and I'm getting some interest from some other schools," Earls said. "I am hearing a lot from Tulane, Louisville, Clemson, Auburn and Georgia Tech too. Most schools are recruiting me as a wide receiver, but Tulane has talked some about defensive back."
The 6-foot-0, 177-pound Earls attended the Athens NIKE camp where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds and posted a 4.37 seconds shuttle as well as posting a 31-inch vertical jump.
"Right now Marshall is my top school because they have offered," Earls said. "I am looking at Georgia Tech, Clemson and Auburn too. They are all showing a lot of interest and I went to their camps and really liked what I saw."
During his junior campaign Earls caught 30 passes for 504 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 16.8 yards per catch.
"I think I run routes very well, that is my strongest point," Earls said. "I use my speed to get past people and beat them deep. I also have very good hands and don't drop many balls."
Though Earls is just beginning to garner his first scholarship offers, he is still keeping his options open and checking things out extensively.
"Location doesn't really matter to me at all," Earls said. "I just want to go somewhere that will allow me to play football early in my career and a place that I can do well academically."
