Lee Renfro drawing major attention

Pulaski Southwestern's Lee Renfro has quietly become a prime target for many top programs throughout the region, including Louisville.

Remember the name, Lee Renfro. While most college coaches throughout the region are fully aware of Renfro, it may be a new name to fans.

Renfro, who measures in at 6-foot-1, 203-pounds, has great strength and speed to go along with with his size and that has drawn heavy interest from a number of programs.

"He has a strong lower body," said Southwestern Head Coach Dale Anderson. "If he gets into the open he's hard to catch as well."

Renfro, who clocked at 4.45 40 time at a recent combine, has already collected offers from a number of Division I-AA and smaller Division I-A programs, such as Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Ball State, Toledo, Eastern Illinois and Western Michigan.

However, offers from bigger programs may be soon coming.

During his spring break, Renfro visited a number of programs that are expressing high interest.

"He has visited South Carolina, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Miami of Ohio, Vanderbilt, Iowa and Ball State," said Anderson. "If they are interested in him, he feels it is important to see what they are like."

Additionally, both Louisville and Kentucky are interested in Renfro, which was an All-State selection as a junior after posting impressive numbers.

Playing on both sides of the ball, Renfro had 207 carries for 1,675 yards and 20 touchdowns, as well as pulling in 6 receptions for 154 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded 87 tackles, 42 assists, 11 pass break ups, 4 interceptions and 3 sacks. He also established a new school record for kickoff returns by returning 16 for 484 yards and 3 touchdowns.

"He can play at a few different positions," continued Anderson. "For example, South Carolina is looking at him as a running back, Oklahoma likes him as a linebacker and others like him at safety. Louisville likes him on defense and possibly as a fullback. He doesn't really care what position he plays, he is the type of kid that just wants to be on the field."

Renfro will be attending the MSL/TheInsiders.com Combine at the end of the month and will likely draw even more attention.
