Tigers Looking Towards Hargrave

The Tigers were fortunate enough last year to be able to grab the services of Chris McDuffie from Hargrave Military Academy. This year, the focus returns back the Virginia military institution, and safety Trey McCullough.

Trey McCullough was a top prospect for the Class of 2003 last season from the Bolles High School in Jacksonville, FL, but qualifying concerns had some teams hesitant to offer him a scholarship. Ironically, he had made his test score now, but he is going to spend a year at Hargrave Military Academy this season in hopes of playing big time Division 1 ball for the Class of 2004.

McCullough is a fast 6-3 and 195 pounds. He will play safety for Coach Robert Prunty at Hargrave, but with his frame, he will likely grow into an outside linebacker on the next level.

"Coach Prunty and I talked about that a little bit," said McCullough. "We said that I might be a linebacker in college too. That's fine with me. I got my SAT score back this spring, and I'm fully qualified now. Some of the schools that I'm looking at are Florida, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Virginia, and Ole Miss."

McCullough will look to fill a void left by Virginia Tech signees Michael Hinton and Corey Gordon at the safety spot. Then he will look to follow in their footsteps to a major Division 1 power.

We will continue to keep you updated on Trey McCollough, right up through signing day 2004.
