Recruiting rises at Friendship Collegiate

Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate running back Malcolm Crockett gave his pledge to Cincinnati back in August. However, the school features a number of other prospects to keep an eye on in the 2011 class.
"Wide receiver Jordan Kittrell is getting heavy interest from Temple," Friendship Collegiate coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim said. "He's going to take a visit to Cincinnati on January 8th. They haven't offered him, but they are paying for his visit, so I think they are pretty close.
"Ohio, Rhode Island and Central Connecticut are interested. Rhode Island just offered him."
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound wideout is rising quickly.
"He's a redzone target, he had eight or nine touchdowns this year," he said. "He's still raw, but he is going to make somebody happy. He's got really good hands and he'll go up and get the football. He's got good ball skills."
Joining Kittrell on a visit in early January is cornerback Lorenzo Fisher.
"He's going to visit Cincinnati the same day as Jordan," he said. "Ohio has offered, Buffalo is in the mix. He's going to visit Bowling Green, but that isn't set up yet. I know New Mexico has offered and Eastern Michigan.
"I think we'll really know something in the dead period when a lot of the mid-majors start to make decisions."
Linebacker Charles Bailey is yet another prospect that is getting looks from schools.
"He just got a Rhode Island offer," he said. "Ohio is very interested. I think he's leaning towards Rhode Island."
Finally, rounding out the group is cornerback DeAndre Price.
"Massachusetts is very close to offering him," he said. "He's still got offers from Richmond, New Mexico and Rhode Island. He is playing it by ear."
