Little Known Florida Back Has Quite A Few Offers

Demetrius McCray may not be well known by recruiting junkies, but he is well know by quite a few college coaches accross the country.

Seffner, Fla.--Demetrius McCray is probably not a name a lot people have heard up to this point of the recruiting season, but this talented running back from the state of Florida did some serious damage as a junior, and is sporting a solid offer list.

"I have got offers from North Carolina, South Carolina, Auburn, USF, University of Akron, Ball State, Indiana and that is all of my offers right now," McCray explains.

The 6-0, 186 pound back, who rushed for 1,400 yards, 24 touchdowns and averaged 10 yards per carry as a junior, which was the highest average in his county, adds that he has gotten phone calls from all of those teams since coaches have been able to contact recruits this month.

McCray says that out of his seven offers, he currently has a top five of North Carolina, South Carolina, Auburn, USF and Akron.

However, the senior tailback notes that he is wide open among the five colleges and plans on taking all five of his official visits before he makes a decision.

The speedy back and his Armwood High teammates got their season off to a good start with a big win, but McCray says he didn't get the chance to do much in the opener. "We got to play one game," he says. "We won 54-19, but we run our offense based on what the defense gives us and pretty much they had a guy on me all night so I only had three carries that night."

Along with his play on the gridiron, McCray is also a star for Armwood on the hardwood and on the track. The senior plays the shooting guard in basketball and led the team in scoring last season. He also runs the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100 relay for the track team, with a personal best 100 time of 10.9 seconds.
