Tech, Louisville Pursue Fla Ath

Dontae Aycock projects by many scouts and coaches to be a big time running back at the college level. The 5'10" 210 lb high school quarterback is up to 22 offers after receiving one three weeks ago from South Carolina. Has Aycock cut down his list of 22 schools to any favorites yet?

Dontae Aycock projects by many scouts and coaches to be a big time running back at the college level. The 5'10" 210 lb high school quarterback is up to 22 offers after receiving one three weeks ago from South Carolina. Has Aycock cut down his list of 22 schools to any favorites yet?

"No not yet," said Aycock. "It's coming up shortly though. Probably sometime during the middle of the season. That's when I'll cut it down and decide my five official visits."

Aycock visited two camps over the summer at Georgia Tech and Florida. "They were fun experiences and really the first big camps I've ever been to," he said. As mentioned earlier, all schools recruiting Dontae covet him as a running back, but one in particular is recruiting him to play quarterback. Georgia Tech is hoping to add him as a future signal-caller. This is what Dontae had to say about his preference of position in college and about Georgia Tech, to whom he almost committed to in the summer:

"I would probably rather play running back because of the potential of doing well and playing in the NFL, but the good thing about Georgia Tech is their quarterback is pretty much a running back at the same time. I haven't talked to (Tech) recently (because of a quiet period) but I'm going to try and get a hold of my recruiting coach soon. They are sending me a ton of mail."

On that thought who is recruiting Dontae the hardest?

"Louisville and Georgia Tech definitely. West Virginia sometimes sends me some hand-written stuff. A little bit anyways."

He also mentioned that this factor will definitely help Georgia Tech and Louisville in his recruiting:

"That will play a factor. Academics are number one. Then who's recruiting me the hardest and the playing time."

Currently, Dontae and his high school team are preparing for a kickoff classic exhibition game next Friday, then a big match up with Gaither the following Friday to start the season. He says that it's Chamberlain's goal to reach the state championship.

"Our chemistry is better this year throughout the team. We should be pretty good if we keep our heads level."
