Black Names Top Five

Ahmad Black had three scholarship offers when he attended the Scout.com All-American Combine in Jacksonville in mid March. Nearly two months after his strong performance there, the Lakeland star now has 11 offers.

"I'm up to 11 now," Black said. "Things are going really well. The team looks OK. Our defense needs to keep stepping up and our new quarterback is going to be a lot better than everyone thought."

Black, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, was asked for his current top five -- all of whom were mentioned have already offered.

"Right now it's LSU, Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Mississippi," he said. "They're all even. I've been to a few places on visits. Ole Miss was nice. They have a good program there and the new coaches seem like they're doing a good job. I wanna check all of those schools out."

Black's Lakeland team takes on Bradenton Manatee in its spring game later this month.
