There aren't too many highly rated fullbacks coming out of high school these days, but Chris Pressley is defying that trend. He's got several offers and two schools remain at the top of his list.
"Maryland and Wisconsin are still my top two," said the 6-foot-1, 264-pound fullback/defensive end from Woodbury, N.J. "They've been honest with me throughout the recruiting process. They haven't made me any promises they won't be able to keep. Plus they need fullbacks and like my game."
While he's a load at 264 pounds, Pressley runs the 40-yard dash in less than 4.5 seconds, combining overwhelming strength with explosion and speed. Who else is he looking at?
"Tennessee, Michigan and Iowa are in my top five," he said. "They're good academically and have great football programs. They all like to play a physical style of football that suits me."
Pressley only visited the Naval Academy this summer, but would like to take official visits if he's able to. He will make his decision at some point during his senior season. He bench presses 390 pounds and squats 670.
