The 6-foot-3, 210 pound prospect is not letting an injured thumb keep him from playing for First Coast High. "It's doing real good. It doesn't feel like it is broken. I'm playing without a cast or anything," said Stamper in a recent interview with CUTigers.
Stamper helped lead First Coast to a 38-14 victory last week. "It went pretty good. They ran only four or five times. They got negative rushing yardage. I had one interception and two pass breakups on the night. I also had a lot of hits that caused incomplete passes."
The prize recruit has started planning his official visits. "I have setup an official visit for Auburn for January 14. I also have one on December 3 with North Carolina State. I am not going to take an official to Clemson because I've been there. Plus I am coming up for the Clemson game against South Carolina."
Clemson, Auburn and North Carolina State are the favorites for the talented linebacker, but there is no leader at this time. "All 3 of those are pretty much even," Stamper said.
When will the talented linebacker make a commitment? "I hope after those two that I will be ready to make my decision," stated Stamper.
What does he like about his top three schools?
Clemson: "With Paul committed there and Brandon going there that gives Clemson an advantage."
Auburn: "I really like the linebacker coach at Auburn. I like him the best of all the linebacker coaches."
North Carolina State: "I also like the linebacker coach. I visited the area up there around Durham and really liked the area."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from Florida, right up through signing day 2005.
