Roanoke (Va.) North Cross School running back Tyler Caveness is a major sleeper in the mid-Atlantic for 2010. The undersized 5-foot-9, 192-pounder put together a massive 2,125-yard season and 26 touchdowns last season. While no offers are on the table, colleges are taking notice.
"The closest thing I have to an offer is Princeton," he said. "They want me as a cornerback and want me to come up for a visit in December and asked if I want to come there.
"I'm hearing from other schools like Wake Forest, Duke, Virginia, Louisville, Nebraska, Michigan State and JMU."
Lots of colleges want to get a better look at Caveness this summer through camps.
"I went to JMU on Sunday and then I'm going to Duke on June 13th and Wake Forest on July 12th. I'm going to a bunch of the Ivy's as well."
Does the Commonwealth prospect like anybody?
"My top school right now is Princeton and then Wake Forest and Duke are up there as well," he said. "Those all have pre-med. I want a degree that can help me for the rest of my life. I can also play football at those. Plus, Wake Forest is getting on a good run and Duke has a good coaching staff."
One of the fastest prospect at the U.S. Army Combine back in January, Caveness talked about what else sticks out about him.
"I'm fast and I read the field well," he said. "I run really tough and I don't give up the ball. I'm an all-purpose back and I can catch."
