Darity (6'4, 260) is yet another solid prospect from the talent rich Tallahassee Lincoln High School program. While the 2003 season has yet to kickoff, Darity finds himself rated among the nation's best at his position. TheInsidersRecruiting.com lists Darity as the 12th best offensive lineman in the country, StudentSports.com ranked him the 3rd top offensive lineman in the nation and FloridaKids.us rated him as the 6th best prospect in the State of Florida.
When ITV spoke with Darity on Tuesday evening we learned that he recently visited the Louisville football complex and campus.
"I was up there sometime last week," said Darity. "It was pretty nice and I liked the campus. I did get to meet a lot of the coaches as well and was able to get a good feel for their program. I was able to see all the facilities and the strength program."
While he said that he receives a lot of mail from the Louisville coaching staff, it became quite clear that it wasn't more than anyone other staff in the nation.
"I get a lot," Darity explained about the amount of mail he receives each day. "I really don't know how much it is."
"I'm really wide open right now," Darity said when asked if he had any current favorites. "I'm just seeing how it goes right now."
With Louisville signing a number of athletes from Lincoln last season and its apparent intention to sign a few from there again this year, the Cardinals may stand out from the crowd.
