    Scouting Report - April 1, 2002: This big time prospect from Crestwood High School has all the physical tools to be a great running back. Size, strength, and speed are all possessed by Demetrius Morant who has the potential to be the top running back out of South Carolina this year.

    In a recent interview by CUTigers,Crestwood Coach Brian Jackson said, "Morant likes contact, but he's also able to turn a corner and outrun people. Its hard to say where he would play in college. I would lean towards FB, and coaches will have the extra option of knowing that he could very well break one in the open field. But, even with a wide open offense, he could still do damage as a blocker or relief to the flats,"

    When asked about Morant's list of college suitors, Coach Jackson said, "I don't think he has any one favorite school, but he says he does like Clemson and South Carolina, and that he wants to go somewhere where they run the ball".

    Demetrius is working on becoming eligible as Jackson went on to say, "he has just about qualified core-wise, and he's taking the SAT/ACT this June to get a jump on the recruiting process."
