Alabama Athlete Claims Big Offers

<b>Ellis Lankster</b>, a versatile athlete from Vigor High School (AL), claims several big offers and has three early favorites.

"I have offers from Florida, Auburn, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Southern Miss," said Ellis Lankster.

"I really like Florida, Auburn and Kentucky," Lankster added.

Lankster knows what he likes about his top three schools and replied, "Auburn has a really good program and a good football team. Florida doesn't lose much and I really would like to win a championship. My dad is a fan (Kentucky) and I started liking them."

Lankster plays several positions for Vigor including cornerback, safety, running back, kick-off return, punt return and punter. Lankster was the second string tailback his junior year but will be the starting tailback and starting cornerback his senior season.

"I was awarded Defensive Player of the Week during the play-offs. In that game, I recorded twelve tackles, one fumble recovery and an interception return for eighty-eight yards," Lankster said.

Lankster says his strength in his speed.  "My quickness. I run a 4.4, and I am really quick. I have good awareness. My coach says I have really quick feet," he replied.

During the off-season, Lankster knows what to pinpoint to help him become a better football player. "I want to improve my power clean because that works six different muscles and that would really help me out. I also like to do a lot of calf raises because that helps with your speed and that would help my forty time," Lankster stated.

This summer, Lankster knows he will camp at Tennessee and still looking at some others.

Lankster wants to play cornerback on the next level.
