Savannah WR Piling Up Offers/Favorites

<img border="0" src="http://gasports.com/files/fb/windfo.gif" align="left">The Savannah area isn't known as one of the most fertile recruiting grounds for colleges, but this year, there are several prospects that are getting D1 looks. The latest includes <b>Eron Riley</b> of Windsor Forest. Riley has several offers, and he discusses his early favorites.

Eron Riley is a wide receiver/defensive back prospect from Windsor Forest that has good size and speed.

"I'm 6-3 and 190 pounds, and I run the forty in 4.48 seconds," said Riley.

Riley helped get his team off to a good start last week.

"I had three catches for 40 yards and six tackles and a fumble recovery against Richmond Hill. We won the game 20-6. I'm looking forward to playing Groves this year. They embarrassed us 53-7 last year.

Riley is a good student as well as a good football player, and several colleges across the region have already stepped up with a scholarship offer.

"I've gotten offers from Duke, Vanderbilt, Maryland, ECU, and MTSU. My Top 5 right now is Vanderbilt, Maryland, Duke, Clemson, and Georgia Tech."

What does Riley like about each of his favorites?

Vanderbilt - The wide receiver coach came to see me in May, and I like the engineering school at Vanderbilt.
Maryland - They are an up and coming program. I like Coach Friedgen and and his offensive scheme.
Duke - They have a great education,  and I think I could play early there.
Clemson - It's somewhat close to home, and they throw the ball around there.
Georgia Tech - It's the in state school, and I have family in Atlanta.

Riley attended camps at Georgia Tech and Duke this summer.
