Terps Going the Right Way with Hemingway

Terp coaches compare Hemingway to former Terp Bruce Campbell.

Xavier Hemingway, a 6 foot 4 offensive tackle from Powder Springs, Georgia, is turning into a major Division I prospect. Hemingway is receiving interest from schools in the ACC, SEC, Big Ten and the Big East. The schools showing interest in him are Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida, Florida International, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Michigan, Michigan State, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Auburn, and Syracuse.

Of all the schools showing interest in Hemingway, only five schools have offered him. “My only offers right now are Syracuse, Maryland, FIU, Tulane, and Louisville. I have always been positive towards Georgia and Georgia Tech, but right now I am trying to cover the basis.

He plans to visit a few of these schools in the near future. I plan on visiting Maryland, Louisville, and Alabama for a camp. Maryland has invited me to their Spring Game.

College coaches have been raving about Hemingway's ability. “They like my athleticism, aggression, and they keep telling me I am a very athletic tackle.”

Maryland coaches are no different. They have fallen in love with his ability and remind them of a former Terp. “I have been talking to Coach Bankins. He told me they would like me to follow the path of Bruce Campbell since he is an athletic tackle too.”

Although Hemingway likes his instate schools he is not counting Maryland out. “I have them in my top three. I have heard about them since they have played basketball against Georgia Tech, but other than that this is all new to me when it comes to Maryland.”

Off the field Hemingway described himself as a “laid back guy who works hard in the weight room, and at this point I am trying to keep my head on straight so I can get on to college and make my family proud.

Hemingway knows he does not want to go far away from his Georgia home, but has no other criteria at the moment to pick a school. He plans on taking the SAT on June 5th, has a 3.4 cumulative GPA, and will most likely make his decision after his senior season.
