FNL: Speed that Kills

Jeff Demps might be the fastest prospect in the entire country. Demps is 5-10 and 180-pounds and runs as low as 4.32. He is from Groveland (Fla.) South Lake High School. Coach Urban Meyer has gone on record saying he wants to have the fastest team in America.

Demps has that brutal kind of speed that gives him the ability to take it the distance every time he touches the ball.

A player that runs a 10.2 100-meter and is ranked third in the nation in track would help Coach Urban Meyer secure one of the fastest teams in the country. After Friday Night Lights, Demps and his dad spent over two hours talking about the top schools that remain on his list. Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Tennessee are all still in the hunt for his services. Demps and his dad hope to have the list narrowed down to two schools at the end of August.

The Gator coaching staff is recruiting Demps to come in and play the same sort of role that Percy Harvin plays. A player that can line up from the slot or tailback position and put an incredible amount of pressure on opposing defenses with his blinding speed and cutting ability.

Demps is coming off an amazing junior season in which he totaled 1,761 yards on 170 carries and 21 touchdowns (10.4 per carry).
