Reggie Merriweather still maintains that Florida and Clemson are his two favorites. Right now, Reggie has offers from Michigan State, Clemson, and Indiana, and he's also drawing heavy interest from Steve Spurrier's Gators, Wake Forest, North Carolina, and Georgia.
Merriweather finished the season two weeks ago after a 2nd round playoff loss, and will play in the Shrine Bowl representing South Carolina as the best running back in the state.
On the year he led the state in several categories, including edging out all-world junior running back Demetrius Summers for the state lead in rushing yards. The two top running backs in the state actually played against each other when North Augusta defeated Lexington 48-42 earlier in the year.
For the record, Merriweather topped Summers 406-301 in rushing yards and 6-4 in touchdowns scored that evening.
Just as important, Reggie scored on his final three carries of the game to rally North Augusta from a 14-point 4th quarter deficit. Even more impressive than that is the fact that he was knocked basically unconscious in the 2nd quarter of that game on a kickoff return.
He then returned in the 2nd half to help lead North Augusta to the win. A win he later called the biggest in school history.
On the season, Merriweather registered 350 carries for 2476 yards and 29 touchdowns. (7.1 yards/attempt)
