DB making a name for himself at camps

Dee McClure of Minor High School in Adamsville, AL is quickly making a name for himself on the camp circuit this summer.

He had a very good day at the Nike Camp held at Auburn with a 4.54 forty, 23 reps at 185, a 4.44 shuttle, and a 30.7 vertical leap.

Dee McClure followed up that performance with even better work last weekend at Auburn's summer camp. He ran a 4.4 forty on the track and had a shuttle of 4.2 with a 35 inch vertical.

What he was not able to do at Nike because of the rain was show his ability to cover receivers, something he did exceptionally well as a junior. Last season McClure had 44 tackles and 6 interceptions.

He began to return punts midway through the season, and he averaged 20 yards per return on 11 attempts.

McClure has also attended Tennessee's summer camp, and he will be going to Florida State next.

"I had a real good day testing at Auburn," said McClure. "I was supposed to go to UCF for one of their camps, but I am on a family vacation, so I'm going to miss it. The next camp I'm going to is Florida State.

"I might do some team passing camps after that, but I don't know if I'll be doing any more individual camps." McClure's recent performances have increased the number of schools interested. "Right now I'm looking at Auburn, UCF, Florida State, and Alabama," he said. "Georgia would probably be my fifth school for a Top 5."

McClure has the speed to play corner and the strength to play safety. "It really doesn't matter to me which position I play," he said. "I'm being recruited to play defensive back."

McClure will team with Tyrone King to form a potent defensive backfield for Minor this season.

McClure is a good student, and he should have no trouble qualifying.
