Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby sophomore safety Deion Singleton has already drawn early interest. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound defensive back claims offers from Georgia Tech, South Carolina, South Florida, and Tennessee.
"My coaches have talked to them for the most part," Singleton said of the foursome. "I did have a chance to talk with Tennessee some. I also talked with South Florida."
The Big Bend prospect talked a bit about what he heard from the Volunteers.
"Tennessee told me they want me to come for their spring game," Singleton said. "They like me at safety and cornerback."
Skip Holtz' Bulls are also interested in getting him on campus for a visit but said a majority of their efforts will be centered around his junior year.
"The coach from USF told me that they just like me a lot," Singleton said. "They told me they will look at me hard as a junior and to just keep working hard. They said they would be real active with me when I am a junior."
Singleton also reports interest from Alabama, Florida State and Miami. One of those three would immediately move up the charts as his leader if an offer was extended.
"Alabama," Singleton said. "It is what they do with defensive backs and for whatever reason I have always been a fan of Alabama. I talk with them on and off. I deal with Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt."
During the summer months, Singleton is hoping to hit the road and check out a few schools.
"I want to visit Alabama, South Florida, and Tennessee," Singleton said.
When it comes time to decide, the Sunshine State prospect knows that academics will play a major part. Other factors are to be determined.
"I am looking for a place with good academics," Singleton said. "Beyond that, I don't know. I have to think more about that."
In addition to playing football, Singleton is also a contributor for Godby's basketball team.
