Charlotte RB Waiting for Offers

Although Corey Darrington has been hitting the college camp circuit hard, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound tailback might have to impress during his senior football season to land his first Division I-A scholarship offer.

"Most of them are saying they are interested, but are waiting to see what I do my senior year," said Darrington.

So far, Darrington has camped at North Carolina and N.C. State with future plans to attend Georgia's and Georgia Tech's camps.

Although he's still waiting to hear back from the Tar Heels' coaching staff, Darrington felt positive about his performance in Chapel Hill.

"It went pretty good," said Darrington. "They were impressed by how I did and everything. I was satisfied with my performance."

Prior to the camp, Darrington did speak fairly in-depth with his primary recruiter at UNC, Dave Brock.

"He said that they were very interested in me and that they were going to recruit me hard," said Darrington.

During the camp, Darrington received a better understanding of how running backs coach Andre Powell operates.

"I like Coach Powell," said Darrington. "I think he's an excellent running back coach and he knows what he's talking about. I really like him as a coach."

While Darrington waits on offers from the big boys, Elon College has already extended him a scholarship offer hoping he falls through the cracks.

With so much up in the air, Darrington is hesitant to establish any resemblance of a favorites list.

During his junior season at Providence, Darrington rushed 175 times for 1,266 [7.23-yard average] and 21 touchdowns earning a spot on the All-Area, All-Mecklenburg County, and All-Conference teams.
