In the SEC, there is always room for an explosive athlete. One such athlete is Courtney Dalcourt of Franklin-Simpson (Ky.) High. Dalcourt, one of the top players in Kentucky, talked with KSR about his recruitment.

Dalcourt currently plays quarterback for Franklin-Simpson High School. But with his 5-foot-11 200 pound frame, many schools see him as a defensive back. Dalcourt's strengths lean more towards him being a quarterback. "I'm just able to pass the ball and get it where it needs to be. I am good at visualizing defense and being able to improvise when thngs break down. I'm good a throwing on the run," said Dalcourt.

"I want to add more arm strength and put more zip on the ball. I just want to be able to make better passes."

The Wildcats join fellow in-state school, Louisville along with Georgia Tech and Central Michigan as schools who are recruiting Dalcourt. Both Central Michigan and Georgia Tech use a quarterback who runs the ball and that fits right in with what Dalcourt brings to the table. However, Dalcourt isn't against a possible position switch. "I'm I'm not going to play (quarterback), I want to know the person has beaten me out. I'm a competitive person and I'll fight for the positoin and put forth the most effort," said Dalcourt. "It also depends on the scheme of the offense."

While there are several reasons Dalcourt could favor one school over another, he's still not ready to name a leader. "I don't favor anybody right now. I haven't take my officials yet," he said.

Dalcourt does have an idea about when he wants to take his officials, though. "I'm going to Georgia Tech first. Then I'm checking the Kentucky and Louisville schedules for the next home game. I'll visit Central Michigan some time later," he said.

"I just want to take my officials and be looking to make my statement (about my commitment) afterwards."
