Monster FB Names Top 5

<b>Jerrell Mabry</b> is a huge fullback for Shaw High School in Columbus, GA. He is a load with the ball in his hands, and he could be even better on the defensive line.

Jerrell Mabry rushed for 1,200 yards on only 125 carries last season for Shaw. He added 23 touchdowns to his totals. At 6-2 and 249 pounds, Mabry is a huge load. His size is excellent for the fullback position, and his speed is good enough, but his best position in college may be defensive tackle with his size and quickness. Mabry isn't ready to think about a position change right now though.

"I like T.J. Duckett," said Mabry when asked who he would compare his game to. "I like his running style. I can be physical, but I can also run away from you in the open field."

Mabry proved that in the state quarterfinals against Marist when he ripped off a 47 yard touchdown run against the eventual state champions. Mabry has been hearing from schools all across the country, but he does have a preseason Top 5 list right now.

"I like Miami, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, and Georgia Tech right now. My favorite team growing up was Miami. I've been getting letters from teams like Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, Auburn, Alabama, Texas A&M, and Arkansas too."

Mabry is a very good student that will have no trouble qualifying. He also averages 10 points per game for the basketball team playing both forward positions.

Mabry's size and quickness make him a very intriguing prospect for the Class of 2005. He will be recruited to play fullback in college, but don't be surprised to see his quickness used on the other side of the ball before his career is over.
