He's Looking South

Gabe McKenzie, one of the region's top players, has offers and names a favorite. The 6-3, 230-pound tight end from Mobile Davidson may be looking even further South.

Gabe McKenzie has received several offers this past month. "I now have offers from Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Southern Miss, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Clemson and Vanderbilt," he said. "Ole Miss was the last to offer. They offered about a week ago."

McKenzie admits he has been overwhelmed by all the attention. He said, 'It is really exciting. It is great motivation for me going into my senior year."

With offers in hand, McKenzie has thoughts on an out-of-state school. Asked about a leader, McKenzie replied, "Miami for right now. I'm also considering LSU, Florida, Florida State, and Alabama."

This summer, McKenzie will travel to several camps and knows what he is looking for on those visits. "I'm going to be looking at the roster," he said. "I want to see if I will be able to come in and play early. I will see what I will have to do to be a tight end. I will also be looking at the campus."

McKenzie plans to camp at LSU, Florida, Alabama and Florida State.
