Florida DB has early offers

Kendall Sawyer is a talented cornerback prospect from East Lee County High, and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Kendall Sawyer is a very good two-way player, and he turned in a very good junior season in 2012.

"I had 730 rushing yards on the year at running back and I play both sides of the ball," Sawyer said. "I was the leading scorer on my team with 20 touchdowns and that includes defense. I finished with 28 hits, 21 solo, and I also had 230 return yards."

Sawyer, 6-feet and 180 pounds, talks about what separates him from other players.

"I just want the ball in clutch situations," he said.

Several schools are already actively recruiting the talented two-way player.

"My top four collages are Miami, USF, LSU, and Louisville," he said. "I have a bunch I'm interested in but it's hard to decide. I have lots of schools interested like USF, UCF, Miami, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Texas, Louisville, Florida, Florida State, App State, South Alabama, and many more."

Interestingly, Sawyer didn't grow up as one of the most athletic kids on the field. He talked more about that.

"I wasn't always an athlete," he said. "I played offensive line and D-Line in pop waner and a little tight end. Then I realized I didn't want to block, I wanted too run the ball so I worked and worked. I got faster and stronger than half the linemen on my team."

That hard work has paid off. Sawyer claims a few early scholarship offers.

"Right now I have seven offers," he said. "Hopefully a lot more come through. The ones I have are North Carolina, App State, USF, Louisville, Miami, and UCF. I'm trying to get LSU too."

The talented cornerback prospect talked about what he'll be looking for in a school.

"The most important thing I will be looking for is a family," he said. "I want to be at a school that plays as a team and with a lil swag on the field. They call me primetime on the field because I play cornerback and, not to sound cocky, but I'm pretty good at it."

Sawyer says he finished his junior season with eight interceptions, six of which were returned for touchdowns including a game-winner.
