Southwest Dekalb High School Prospects

Southwest Dekalb High School sits nestled away in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. The Panthers of Dekalb High have seen some of their alumni go on to play in the NFL; players such as Cosey Coleman, Rodney Williams and most notable Quincy Carter. The newest generation of Dekalb Panthers are looking to make their mark in the college ranks in hopes of their NFL dreams coming true.

A handful of prospects from Dekalb are claiming offers from some big name schools, while others are collecting several offers from what some would consider mid-major college programs. Either way most of these prospects should be on a Division 1 roster next fall.

Terrell Scott profile page

Linebacker Terrell Scott claims offers from some BCS conference schools. Most schools are recruiting Scott as a safety or a weak-side linebacker.

"Most of the schools in the SEC are showing me some interest. Mississippi State, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State and Michigan State have offered me. I have written offers from Mississippi State and Auburn," said Scott. "My top three right now would be Florida State, Mississippi State and Georgia, but of those MSU is the only one to offer."

It is fairly obvious that the coaching staff from Mississippi State have made an impression on the talented defender.

"I like the atmosphere and the coaching staff. They came to see me practice in the spring and they sent me some information that made it seem like a really good school. I haven't been to a camp down there yet, but I like them," said Scott.

Auburn also appears to be serious about Scott and he has some interest in them as well.

"I got to see the campus when I was in the 9th grade. I went to a team camp that year at Auburn. I was going to go to camp there this year, but I was moving and couldn't make it," said Terrell.

Scott had a few of the schools recruiting him call him back during the spring evaluation period.

"I got calls from East Carolina, LSU and Mississippi State. I get some text messages to. I had one coach text me and tell me "Happy Father's Day" (Laughs) and I get mail just about every week from Louisville, Auburn and Mississippi State," said Terrell.

Scott has one huge advantage over most high school prospects, one that required a lot of hard work and dedication.

"I graduate (from High school) in December, so I hope to be in school by January. I will probably make a decision by mid-season, so I can make some plans," said Scott.

Morris Council profile page

Council plays defensive end for the Panthers and makes it very difficult for teams to get the corner. Morris has attracted the attention and offers from several schools.

"I have offers from Miami (OH), Toledo, Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, Memphis, Tulane, Tennessee State and a few more. Ohio State, Auburn and Mississippi State are also contacting me," said Council.

Council has spent some time this summer on the camp circuit and had the chance to visit some of his favorite schools.

"I went to Ohio State's camp and Auburn camps. I am going to UGA (Georgia) camp tomorrow for one day and then I am going to go over to Georgia Tech for their camp on Saturday. I might go to Virginia Tech's camp," reported Council.

While Morris has a several offers, he would really like to get one from Ohio State. Council claims at this time that the Buckeyes are the program he is most focused on.

David Davis profile page

Linebacker prospect David Davis is another Panther player with several offers.

"I have offers from Miami (OH), Bowling Green , Toledo, Akron and several more schools. I get some things from Marshall, Tulane, Mississippi State and a bunch of other schools," said Davis.

David participated in the All-American combine in Atlanta and has some plans to camp before the summer is out to help improve his stock even further.

"I am going to UGA's camp this weekend and to Georgia Tech on the 17th," said Davis.

Tenerio Davis profile page

Tenerio Davis also attended the All-American combine in Atlanta. Since that time he has picked up an SEC offer.

"So far Mississippi State is my only offer. I am not going to camp there, but I am going to Georgia this weekend and I am going to Auburn's camp. I think Auburn and Clemson maybe close to offering," said Davis.

Davis is happy to get an offer from an SEC school, but he is holding out for a few more before making a decision.

"Clemson, Auburn, Mississippi State and Georgia are my top schools. I get a lot of mail and text messages from them and a bunch of other schools," said Tenerio.

Davis says he has not received his offer from Mississippi State in writing, but is expecting it soon.

With so many prospects on the roster, the coaching staff believes they have a chance for a solid season. Stay with to see how the Panthers season progresses and to see just how many Southwest players sign letters of intent come signing day.
