In-State Defender Still Looking At Four

This big defensive end talks about a recent unofficial visit and the four colleges that have peaked his interest.

Bobby Greenwood, of Prattville High School, is one of the top defensive end prospects in the southeast.

Last weekend, Greenwood tripped to Gainesville. "I went to the Florida/LSU game," he notes. "It was a fun game. I wish Florida could have pulled it off, but LSU just came out and played hard.

"I was able to speak with my recruiting coach, Coach Wickline," Greenwood adds. "He is a good coach. My dad and he went to the same high school. I talked to Chad Jackson (WR) from Hoover."

This weekend, Greenwood says he is planning on traveling to Tallahassee. "I am going down to the Florida State/Virginia game," he explains. "It is a huge game and I am really looking forward to it. I don't know of any other games I am planning to go to yet."

The six-foot-six, 235-pound defensive end says four schools remain in the hunt for his services.

"I do not have a favorite yet," Greenwood explains. "It is still between Alabama, Florida State, Auburn, and Vanderbilt. I have not set up any official visits. I will take visits to those schools and not take my fifth visit.

"I am now going to wait until after my visits before I make a decision," he adds. "I figured one school would not treat me as good as another school, but all the schools have been great towards me. It's going to come down to the official visits before I decide."

Grennwood says that those four colleges have been staying in close contact.

"Coach Andrews (Florida State), Coach Randolph (Alabama), Coach Whitt (Auburn), and Coach Fisher (Vanderbilt) have been calling me every week," he says. "Coach Andrews really knows what he is talking about. He has a lot of experience. Coach Randolph is a great guy to talk to and he has a great personality. Coach Whitt is a good coach and Coach Fisher talks very highly of Vanderbilt."

Grennwood and his Pratville team have been one of the better teams this season in 6A. Last week, however, the Lions had a closer game than expected.

"We are 6-0," he says. "I think we are going to win state this year. That is our mind set. We beat Carver-Montgomery, 14-13, last week. The score seems a lot closer than it really was. We play at Sidney Lanier on Friday night. I am not sure how many tackles I have this year, but I do have eight sacks."
