Name: Sincere David
Town: Jacksonville, Fla
Size: 6-foot-3, 315
Recruitment: Signed with Ole Miss over West Virginia, Colorado State, North Carolina, Indiana and Louisville
Scout.com Ranking: No. 80 DT
Scout.com evaluation: Signing day brought several surprises for Ole Miss, but perhaps none were bigger than Sincere David. The Jacksonville, Fla., product had never even been discussed as a possibility before signing day. Little did we know that former North Carolina defensive line coach Tray Scott, who spent the last six weeks in the same position at Ole Miss before leaving for Georgia, was recruiting him while at North Carolina. He brought that relationship to Ole Miss.
David was a well-known commodity around the Jacksonville area. He helped Sandalwood to the state playoffs for three years during his time there and was a first team All-State selection in Florida's largest classification, 8A.
Sincere is a really good athlete that played everywhere in high school: quarterback, running back, offensive tackle and defensive tackle. Defensive tackle is where he projects at Ole Miss. When you watch his film it's easy to see why he had so much success at one of Florida's powerhouse programs. David has really strong hands that allows him to shed his blocks and has a quick burst to get to the ball-carrier. The footwork is there. That's evident by just watching his offensive highlights. It's rare to see a 315-pound player line up at quarterback. Well, unless you're an Ole Miss fan (Jeremy Liggins). But defense will be where the focus will be at Ole Miss. He is raw, and needs to get in a good, structured environment, but the tools are there to play at a high level one day.
