Rebels hot after Sunshine DB

The 6' 0", 170 pound cornerback out of Coral Reefs (FL) had 40 tackles and 2 interceptions as a junior.

How is Spring practice going?

"It is going real good," added Charles Sawyer. "It was organized and high tempo. We have a new head coach. Clemons took over. We have some really good coaches. Everyone likes him. We are doing good."

What has Charles improved on most this Spring?

"I have more knowledge. Last year I was playing off ability alone, but this year, Coach Parnell is teaching me the ins and outs of playing corner."

Any scouts at the practices?

"I have had Central Florida, FIU, Ole Miss, UAB, Florida, and Vandy come through."

Sawyer garnered scholarship offers from the University of Florida and Mississippi during the offseason. Any new offers?

"Yes sir, UCF, Vandy, UAB, and FIU have offered me this Spring."

Two schools continue to be high up on Charles' list.

"I like my relationship with Ole Miss. Coach Vaughn is very open and down to earth. We connected. He is also their DB coach. That is pretty cool because you have to feel comfortable with your position coach. He just makes me feel real comfortable with Ole Miss."

"Florida is my home state school. They show good support. They are not too overboard with it. They tell me info about Florida, and I am cool with it. They are all about the same. I just have to narrow it down."

Who else has impressed the Coral Reef standout?

"Vandy and Central Florida."

"If you go to Vandy it is all about school work. That is the way it is around here. Nothing would change if I were to go to Vandy. Plus, both of their starting corners are graduating. They have a high percentage of players leaving early. The same thing goes with UCF."

Anymore schools close to offering?

"I watched Kentucky play a few times last year. I talk to their coach today and they said they just got in my film, and I should be hearing some good news shortly."

Charles carries a 2.95 GPA / 16 ACT
