Top Juco WR Likes Noles
"Florida has the tradition of being winners and I know a lot of players on the Florida State squad," Coahoma CC Sophomore Julius McClellan said. "I know Buster Davis, Chris Davis, Broderick Bunkley and Crophonso (Thorpe). I Know Crophonso because we played against his team as a freshman. I know the others from the Florida/Georgia All-Star game. I still talk with Chris and Buster on the phone. They love it down there."
McClellan also knows a player from the Gators.
"I know wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius from Fort Meade," he said. "My father grew up in Fort Meade."
The former Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen wide receiver has been offered by most of the SEC conference and Florida State.
"Florida State has offered me verbally and I hear from them every week," he said. "Coach Andrews and Haggins call. Coach Andrews called me this past Monday. I know Coach Haggins because he's from the same country as me in Florida."
He keeps up with the Gators and Noles each week from his dorm in Mississippi.
"I watch every one of their games on TV," he said. "I flip back and forth between Florida State and Florida. I was supposed to go visit Florida for their last home game but I didn't make it. I'm going to visit Florida State when they play Florida with one of my teammates and coach."
McClellan, who will graduate in May, wants to take some official visits before making a decision. He would like to visit Florida, Florida State and Miami.
What does he bring to the table?
"I consider myself a bigger version of Peter Warrick," he said. "I like to have fun and make people miss. I'm a playmaker."
The big-wide receiver is definitely a play-maker for sure. As a sophomore, he has already caught 11-touchdowns in only six games played. McClellan had 48 catches for 1,297 yards and 14 touchdowns at Coahoma as a freshman.
