Tigers in Great Shape with JR LB/RB

This T.L. Hanna standout is listed as the No. 6 prospect in South Carolina by Scout.com and his offer list is quickly growing. CUTigers.com introduces the talented prospect in this recruiting update.

6-2, 215 pound athlete Brian Maddox had an outstanding junior season playing on both sides of the ball for T.L. Hanna. "I had 206 carries for 1328 yards and 18 touchdowns as a running back," Maddox told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "On defense I had two interceptions at linebacker. I'm not sure how many tackles I had."

With those kind of numbers, it's not surprising to hear that Maddox is already building an impressive offer list. "Right now, I have offers from Maryland and Duke. I am hearing from Maryland, Duke, Clemson, Vanderbilt and Michigan. I'm getting mail from Clemson but not South Carolina," he said.

When asked if he has any early favorites, Maddox responded, "I really like Maryland right off the bat. I like their facilities. I also like their running back coach and their head coach. I went up there when they played Boston College this year.

"I'm also going to give Clemson a strong look. I always wanted to go there ever since I was very little. I grew up a Clemson fan. I made it to like four of their games this year."

Clemson recruiting coordinator/linebackers coach David Blackwell is recruiting Maddox for the Tigers and an early commitment could come if the right offer comes along. "I would like to make an early decision. I will want to see who offers."

What position does Maddox want to play in college? "I would like to play running back," he responded.

The Palmetto standout is also already thinking about where he would like to camp next summer. "I want to camp at Clemson, Maryland, Duke and probably Vanderbilt this summer. Last summer I camped at Clemson and Georgia Tech," he added.

Maddox projects as either a linebacker or running back at the next level. We will continue to keep you updated on his recruitment, right up through signing day 2007.
