AU, Many Others Interested in LaGrange LB

A recruiting update on 2009 football prospect Qua Huzzie with video is featured.

LaGrange, Ga.--Qua Huzzie is an outstanding linebacker who is wrapping up his junior year at LaGrange High with a handful of scholarship offers and the possibility of more coming later this spring and summer.

A player who stood out in a strong group of linebackers at the Under Armour Southeast Elite Football Camp in Auburn, Huzzie is coming off a season in which he made 102 tackles with 27 going for lost yardage.

"I think I did real well at the camp in Auburn," Huzzie says. "I really competed, worked hard, and gave it all I had."

The 5-11, 200 pounder, who also plays baseball and competes on the LaGrange High track team, notes he has been lifting weights and doing conditioning drills this spring to get ready for his senior season. He has also been reading letters from college coaches.

"Duke, South Carolina, Kentucky, Memphis and Oklahoma State are the colleges who have offered scholarships," he says. "I've received letters from South Carolina, Georgia, Auburn, Memphis, Duke, Oklahoma State, Florida and Alabama."

A player who has tried to follow in the footsteps of former LaGrange star Tray Blackmon, who will be a junior at Auburn this season, Huzzie says he is definitely interested in Coach Tommy Tuberville's Auburn program and notes that the Tigers have told him they are very interested although they haven't offered a scholarship yet.

"I know I'm coming back down to the Auburn camp, but I'm not sure of the others," he says of his summer schedule. "I'll probably go somewhere new."

LaGrange, a traditional power in Georgia high school football, is tuning up in spring drills for what Huzzie hopes will be a memorable senior season.

"We're going to have a really good team on both offense and defense," he predicts. "We just need to come out in the spring, do what we're supposed to do, and get down to business."
