WR Derrick McPhearson
5-11, 185, 4.4
Fork Union Military Academy
Fork Union, Virginia
Upon graduating from DeMatha, McPhearson was set to attend Florida. Then rumors began to circulate that he was going to try professional baseball after he didn't qualify to enroll at Florida. In August, McPhearson was expected to enroll at Hargrave Military Academy, that didn't happen. Then unexpectedly he called Fork Union (Va.) head coach John Shuman.
"I knew who he was obviously, I told him how it was here and he said he wanted to come on down," said Shuman "Derrick was one of my best players this season he really did it all offense, defense, special teams you name it.
Florida is no longer considered to be in the picture after the dismissal of Ron Zook.
"Once he heard that he really wasn't looking at Florida anymore."
McPhearson is considering Maryland, LSU, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Miami, and Nebraska. All have offered with the exception of Miami. McPhearson and his Fork Union teammates got a birds eye view of the Hokies last week.
"We had a J.V. game down there so we went down Thursday and Friday and watched the game against Maryland."
McPhearson has set official visits at Maryland (12/10), Clemson (1/14/05), and LSU (1/21/05).
