Monday Morning Recruiting Updates

We've got the latest on several big time prospects for the 2002 class, including QB Chansi Stuckey, WR Troy Williamson, WR Kelvin Grant, and WR Travis Anderson.

Troy Williamson
Troy Williamson demonstrated why he is considered to be one of the top players in the state Friday evening as he hit up the Mullins High defense for 5 touchdowns on only 7 touches of the football. Overall, the Shrine Bowl participant and Mr. Football finalist, who also is the reigning 100-meter champion in Class AA, finished the game with 133 yards rushing and 90 yards receiving.

"I had some good blocking tonight," said Williamson, a senior playing his final home game. "We decided to come out and play hard. There's something about playing in front of all your friends and family that brings out the best in you," said Williamson.

The first play Silver Bluff ran was a handoff that Williamson took straight up the field 64 yards for a touchdown. On the Bulldogs' second possession, Williamson got behind the Mullins defense and brought in a 47-yard scoring reception.

Later in the first half, Williamson scored on a 39-yard pitch sweep and a 25-yard pass. He added a fifth touchdown early in the third quarter on a 22-yard run.

Silver Bluff continued their domination of the entire state by winning their 29th game in a row. The Bulldogs will now battle Batesburg-Leesville (the last team to beat them in 1999) in the state championship next Saturday in Williams-Brice Stadium.

Willamson is set with visits to Clemson and South Carolina in early January, but a whole host of over the schools loom on the horizon including Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, and Florida State.

Kelvin Grant had another strong outing Friday evening as his Camden Bulldogs took care of business against a tough Newberry team. Grant caught a 37-yard touchdown pass to help lead Camden to a 34-14 win. On the day, he finished with 5 receptions for 94 yards, including several key 3rd down conversions.

Commenting on the fact that Camden will battle Union for the state championship next week, Grant simply said, "It's just incredible!"

Grant is set with visits to South Carolina and Clemson, and is now considering a trip up to Maryland to see their program. Georgia and Tennessee are also still options.

WR Travis Anderson out of Byrnes High saw his season come to an end Friday night as Brynes lost to Conway 19-14. Anderson finished with only one reception for 29 yards on a rain-soaked field. Anderson will now turn his attention to lining up all of his official visits, with one very likely being to Clemson.

Chansi Stuckey
QB Chansi Stuckey of Northside High School completed 6 of 11 passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns, and added 97 yards rushing on nine carries. Stuckey has fully recovered from his strained MCL injury suffered earlier in the season. Clemson remains firmly in his top 3. Stuckey insists that he is being recruited as a Division 1-A quarterback, even though most analysts see him as a wide receiver or cornerback in college. We will have a complete profile on Chansi Stuckey Tuesday morning.
