Ricky DeBerry of St. Christopher's School in Richmond, Virginia, picked up his 39th scholarship offer on Sunday night, and it came from the San Diego State Aztecs. Despite having offers from schools around the country, DeBerry insists that all schools are even at this point.

"I'm still wide open, I still want to make more visits before I make any decisions. The in-state schools are probably recruiting me the hardest, but everybody is pretty much the same."

San Diego State had been recruiting DeBerry for some time before extending a scholarship offer; "I've been talking to Coach Lewis for a while."

"I'm definitely trying to get out there for a visits, Coach Lewis is a great guy," DeBerry said. "He said that San Diego is a great place, they're definitely an upcoming program and he wants me to become a part of it."

DeBerry hopes to make a trip to the west coast this summer so he can take visits to San Diego State, as well as USC, UCLA, and Arizona State.

"I'm definitely gonna try to get to Auburn and Ohio State before the summers out too."

The high school season gets started for DeBerry in roughly a month, but until then he'll be busy preparing himself for the start of his upperclassmen years.

"I've been working out during the week, we have practices after weight lifting, and I do other things on the weekends."

For those who haven't seen him on the field, DeBerry describes his playing style as the following, "I would probably have to say that I'm very tenacious, I have a great IQ of the game, and I don't stop until the whistle is blown."

"Location isn't a factor for me. I'm looking for playing time and where I feel most at home," DeBerry told me. "I'm committing after my senior season, somewhere around signing day."
