2003 Profile: DB Cory Amos

Even though his team finised 2-8 last season, Cory Amos appears to be a standout athlete ready to burst onto the recruting scene this fall. Amos currently stands as one of the more underrated prospects in South Carolina.

Amos (6'2, 185, 4.5) comes into the 2002 season with a whole range of possibilities in terms of positions. He started last season at cornerback, before being moved over to linebacker.

"I started at corner, but nobody was throwing over there, so I was moved to outside linebacker where I could see more action," said Amos in a recent intervew.

"I did play corner against Kelvin Grant though, and I held him to one catch." Grant, an incoming freshman at Clemson this year, was one of the most dominating wide receivers in the southeast last season.

Amos camped this summer at South Carolina, Georgia, and Georgia Southern this summer, and his top 5 currently includes Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Virginia Tech.

Amos has good size to play cornerback, but he could develop more into a safety, or even a linebacker at the collegiate level- pending on how much weight he adds in the coming years. He is currently ranked as the #87 prospect in the country at safety by TheInsiders.

Cory has been receiving steady mail from the Tigers, but no formal scholarship offer has been made this early in the recruiting process. We will continue to keep you updated on Cory Amos throughout the upcoming season, but make no mistake- he's one to watch.
