Brookland-Cayce finished the 2003 regular season at 9-1, before falling to Camden 33-31 in the first round of the playoffs.
Leading the way for Bearcats last season was a trio of underclassment that figure to make some major noise on the college football recruiting scene in 2004.
One of the best defensive tackles in South Carolina next season will be the Bearcats' Cedric Gordon. The 6-3, 290-pound prospect, who runs a 5.1 forty-yard dash, registered 76 tackles, 32 unassisted and 3 tackles for loss as a junior.
Brookland-Cayce head coach Brad Coleman gave us his thoughts on Gordon.
"His strengths are his size and his aggressiveness," says Coach Coleman. "He is playing defensive end for us but will probably play defensive tackle or offensive line at the next level."
Another Brookland-Cayce standout is junior defensive back Corleon Brown.
The 5-11, 170 pound prospect made the all-state team as a junior. Brown, who runs a 4.5 forty, had 91 tackles, 33 unassisted, 6 interceptions, 5 passes broken up, 1 fumble recovery and 4 blocked kicks as a junior. "Corleon plays free safety for us right now. He's a pretty physical player."
Junior linebacker Vincent Scott is also expected to receive attention from the recruiters as they visit Brookland-Cayce.
The 5-10, 180 pound outside linebacker has 139 tackles, 77 unassisted, 12 sacks, 11 hurries and 16 tackles for loss as a junior. Scott was the All-Area Defensive Player of the Year according to the State newspaper.
"Vincent plays outside linebacker for us. He will play a Sam or Will linebacker at the next level. He is a head hunter."
We will continue to keep you updated on these outstanding prospects, right up through signing day 2005.
We've heard some very positive things early on regarding this trio of athletes, but we've heard some exceptional things regarding defensive tackle Cedric Gordon. In addition, B-C also has a rising sophomore, Jarvis Glenn that will be one to watch for the 2006 class.
