Floyd Has Four at the Top

Pack Pride checks in with Union County (SC) defensive end Desmond Floyd and has the latest on his top schools.


Not surprisingly, the four schools currently leading for Desmond Floyd are also the four schools that have sent scholarship offers his way -- NC State, Duke, Kentucky and South Carolina.

"I like all of the schools (recruiting him) but it's those four right there together at the top," Floyd said.

At 6-5 and around 230 pounds, Floyd projects as a defensive end in college, and that's exactly the position his favorite schools are recruiting him to play.

Floyd was at NC State's spring game not long ago and it was his first time visiting the school. What were his first impressions of what the Wolfpack has to offer?

"It went real good," he said of his time in Raleigh. "I just went to the game and that was about it. I talked to the defensive line coach ... I talked to coach Bridges and coach O'Brien, too. I liked it a lot when I went up there."

He didn't elaborate too much beyond that, but that shouldn't be cause for Pack fans to worry. He didn't say much else when it came to the other schools on his list either.

"I've been to Duke, Kentucky and South Carolina, too. I liked all of them honestly. One doesn't stand out more than the others.

"With Duke I like the coaching staff. I've been up there a couple of times so I already knew everybody when I went up there this last time. That was a few weeks ago.

"I went to Kentucky in March, I think it was. That was for one of their junior days. I went to a basketball game, too. Everything is nice up there, too.

"I like the coaching staff at South Carolina, plus their defense is real good."

Floyd doesn't have any visits coming up on the horizon, and he said he isn't sure if he will make any official visits. He will make his decision "whenever he feels comfortable" enough to do so. He said he tries to talk to the coaches from the schools that have offered at least once per week.
