Three to watch from South Carolina
Allendale-Fairfax High School in South Carolina is the home of three prospects for the Class of 2010 in quarterback Bashaud Breeland, running back Jerrell Priester and defensive tackle/center Tevin Mole. Breeland has three scholarship offers while the other two are getting their share of interest.
South Carolina was the first to offer Breeland. Then it was Clemson and Wake Forest.
"Getting that South Carolina offer was exciting for me," Breeland said. "They were always my favorite school and my favorite team to watch growing up.
"I like the defense Clemson plays and they are fast and think I fit in pretty well. I know Wake Forest has a real good coach (Jim Grobe)."
Another team high on Breeland's list is Georgia Tech. They are the one team recruiting him as a quarterback while everyone else likes him at safety. They could offer him, as soon as Yellow Jacket head coach Paul Johnson evaluates his tape and gives the approval.
"I love their style of offense. I am good at running the option but I can throw the ball too. I can beat you with my arms and legs.
"It really doesn't matter to me what position I play. I really just want to get on the field."
Priester, 5-10 and 170 pounds, is an all-purpose running back who is also getting looked at on defense as a cornerback.
"I have good speed and can be elusive," Priester said. "On defense, I can be physical and shut down receivers."
Priester doesn't have any offers at this time but Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson and Maryland are all showing a lot of interest. Last season he rushed the ball 99 times for 1,194 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Mole, 6-2 and 260 pounds, stars on both sides of the ball at center and defensive tackle.
"On defense I have some good moves and I am physical. I am strong out there and play the run and pass pretty well. As a center I do most of everything pretty well. It doesn't matter what position I play in college.
"Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, and Wake Forest are some of the schools I like."
All three players will be attending the junior day at South Carolina tomorrow.
