Ray Drew is one of the top defensive ends for the 2011 class. The Thomas County Central High standout's recruitment got off to a hot start as schools like Florida State, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Cal and a slew of others offered him a scholarship.
Earlier this week Drew was named as a 2011 Army All-American, an honor a select few obtain. Drew told NoleDigest that he was excited about becoming an All-American, especially with a group of defensive linemen that looks deep in 2011.
"Oh absolutely, it's such a great honor," said Drew of being named to the Army All-American bowl. "To even be considered as an All-American is great."
Drew is a recruit that keeps things close to the vest. He is keeping his recruitment wide open at this time as no schools are standing out.
"I am pretty open to everyone really," said Drew of his recruitment. "I am looking at coaching staffs, depth charts and a program that has tradition. Right now I have a lot of great options."
Junior days are just around the corner for schools across the nation. Drew says he's been invited to several but he doesn't know what his plans are at this time.
"I was invited to junior day at Georgia Tech, Georgia, FSU and N.C. State," said Drew. "I plan on going to a few but I am not sure which one I'm going to yet."
Drew's recruitment will pick up steam after the 2010 class signs. Until then stay tuned to NoleDigest for the latest with Ray's recruitment.
