DE Ricky Sapp
6-5, 225, 4.38
Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School
Bamberg, South Carolina
The 6-5, 225 pound prospect, who runs a 4.38 forty, will have a hard time improving on his junior season at Bamberg-Ehrhardt. "I had 70 tackles, 11 sacks and 5 tackles for loss last year," Sapp told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
Look for several scholarship offers to come soon for Sapp as the May Evaluation Period approaches later this year. "I don't have any offers yet. But I am getting a lot of interest from Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Clemson and Middle Tennessee State," said Sapp.
When asked if he has any early favorites, Sapp responded, "Not yet. I just want to see who offers first and see what all is out there."
And what are the strengths of the standout defender? "My strengths are my ability to sack the quarterback. I would also say my speed. I'm really fast," said Sapp.
Next year's opponents of Bamberg-Ehrhardt will not be pleased to hear that Sapp will be working even harder this offseason to make himself even better. "That's a big deal to me. I want to work on my agility. I also want to get faster and stronger," said Sapp.
The camp schedule will become clearer over the next few months, but Sapp already has a few ideas. "I know I would like to go to Georgia and Florida," stated the blue-chip prospect.
Sapp would also like to play in one of the top conferences in the country. "I really like the SEC, but the ACC is tough now too. I like them both and I could see myself playing in either one," said Sapp.
The South Carolina standout is likely to make a decision late in the recruiting process. "I want to wait it out. I want to take my time and take my visits before I make a decision," added Sapp.
