Rock Hill, South Carolina Northwestern cornerback Fentrell Cypress journeyed south Saturday for the Georgia Tech football camp. The result was an impressive showing by the 5’11”-170 athlete.
The rising junior more than held his own against the competition at the camp. “I thought the camp was good and I thought that I did well.” The camp’s ones on one drills enabled Fentrell to showcase his talents. “It felt like I was doing great against all the guys I was going up against.”
In addition to taking part in the camp, Fentrell also got to spend some time talking with a few of the Tech coaches. Fentrell talked to Coach Mike Sewak and Coach Joe Speed. Following the camp, Tech head coach Paul Johnson pulled Cypress aside and offered him a scholarship. “The coaches told me they liked my footwork, my hips, and my speed. They all said they would like for me to come back for another visit.”
Cypress plans to return for another visit to Tech. “I liked it there a lot.” Fentrell didn’t get to see much of the campus this time around. He hopes to see more on a return visit. Cypress also has visits planned to North Carolina and Virginia Tech this summer. “I used to live in Virginia so I want to see them.” Once the college season begins, Fentrell would like to attend some games. Florida will likely be one of the destinations for Fentrell. “The recruiting process is kind of new to me at this point.”
As the attention he is getting is new to him, Fentrell has not thought about which schools may be recruiting him harder than the others. “I’m just getting a feel for my recruitment right now.” As the summer proceeds look for more schools to get involved with the talented rising junior and his offer list should start to grow.
