Speedy Floridian Has A Duke Offer

Cocoa (Fla.) speedster Chevelle Buie has helped lead his high school team to consecutive state titles, and college recruiters have taken notice. Buie already holds several offers, and is primed to add more. After participating in the USAAAB Junior Combine, Buie sat down with Bill Greene and discussed how things are going.

Chevelle Buie (Cocoa,Fla.) once again helped lead his high school team to a state title in the sunshine state. In helping lead Cocoa to its second consecutive title, Buie has attracted the interest of several top colleges, and is picking up offers in the process.

"I've been offered by Duke, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida State, Rutgers, and a few others," Buie said. "All the schools say they like my speed and my athleticism. I ran a 4.4 forty here at this combine, and I know I can go faster than that."

Buie, who plays runningback at Cocoa, probably projects as a defensive back or slot receiver as a college player. He has rushed for nearly 3,400 yards the past two seasons.

"Nobody knew anything about me as a sophomore, but after we won the first state championship, I was named the 2A Player of the Year," he stated. "My junior year I had a better year, because I became a better receiver, and I still had a lot of yards rushing. We won another state championship, and that's the most important thing."

"I think I'm an offensive player at the college level," he continued. "I see myself as an all-purpose type of player. I can be a runningback, but also slip out and play slot receiver."

Even though he has attracted several offers at this point, Buie claims he has no leader and is willing to see the recruiting process through until Signing Day of 2011.

"I have no leader and I'm open to hearing from anyone at this point," he stated. "I'm interested in any school that's interested in me. I have no favorites at all, at this point. I want to take all my visits and announce on Signing Day. I'm doing good in the classroom, and I'm taking the ACT in a few weeks. I'm just going to enjoy the recruiting process and see where it goes, but my main goal is to win our third state title in a row for Cocoa."
