Peach state QB's stock still soaring

DUNCAN, S.C. - Not even a starter at quarterback for North Gwinnett HS (GA) last year, 2011 prospect C.J. Uzomah already sports an impressive list of choices.

Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, Maryland, Indiana and South Florida have all made offers.

Between games at the Palmetto State 7-on-7 Showdown in Duncan, a humbled Uzomah told that he's still soaking it all in.

With two visits to Tigertown under his belt, Uzomah is high on Clemson.

"I like the environment, the town. It's not huge but not all that small," he said. "I like atmosphere and the academic standards. Coach (Billy) Napier is a great guy and so is the whole coaching staff.

"I like how they don't just want you to be a great football player. They want you to be better as a person."

Though Uzomah doesn't know his GPA, he said he does well in the classroom-- well enough to consider pre-law as his major.

A versatile player on the gridiron, Uzomah was the backup at quarterback and played wide receiver when 2010 prospect Cordero Dixon went down with an injury last year. He will play both this year, but mostly quarterback though he is only taking snaps at the Palmetto State 7-on-7.

North Gwinnett ended pool play at 6-0-1 and is seeded second in the next stage of the tournament.

"Every team out here is phenomenal. Everyone is out here playing really hard. It's been some great competition," Uzomah said. Top Stories
