As most recruiting junkies know by now, Sumter's Crestwood High School has two top notch prospects on the field this season. One, SS Maurice Nelson has been hearing from schools from all over, the other, FB Demetrius Morant hasn't quite picked up the recognition that he might deserve just yet.
"Nelson has doing great, many schools have been seen on sidelines, and the phone calls are coming each night," says Crestwood coach Brian Jackson. "Nelson is also performing well on the field, and leading by example to the younger defensive guys. He has set official visit dates with Clemson for January 10th, and Georgia for December 3rd."
"Morant on the other hand has been getting shafted by the colleges. I do not know why, but no one seems to be in contact with him. He also is the only back we have with experience, so he is carrying the brunt of the load averaging close to 30, sometimes 40 carries a game," added Jackson.
Morant has been dominating during his senior season and he currently has a streak of 24 straight games with 100 yards or better.
"He almost rushed for 2000 yards last year, and he's already close to 500 this year after 3 games. He's a true workhorse. He broke one on Manning for 67 yards and broke free of 3 DB's tackling his knees," said Jackson.
