SC Power-Back Visits Noles and Gators

This past weekend one of the Southeast's top running backs took a swing through the state of Florida to visit both the Seminoles and Gators. Renegade caught up with the Anderson (SC) TL Hanna standout for the latest.

"It was the first time that I have ever been to Tallahassee and I came away impressed," Brian Maddox said. "I really liked the stadium and I got to meet most of the coaches. Coach Bowden was away accepting an award. Florida was very nice and Coach Meyer is a great hands on coach."

Maddox isn't claiming a leader but the rumor is that South Carolina is the team to beat.

"I like South Carolina a lot but I have no leaders right now," he said. "Florida and Florida State are two out-state teams that I could see myself playing for in college I can see them giving South Carolina a run for their money."

The 5-foot-11 and 215 pound power-back is looking for a school where he can get a good education and a place where there's a strong relationship with the coaches.

"I want to major in Mechanical Engineering so selecting the right school for that is important," he said. "The coach-player relationship is also important to me."

Maddox will make a decision on his birthday May 28th.

As a junior, he rushed for 1328 yards on 206 carries with 305 receiving yards.
