Update on Chris Singleton

Chris Singleton (Dunbar HS, Fort Myers, FL) is a talented defensive back from the sunshine state. A superb athlete, Singleton had only 2 passes completed in front of him during his Junior season at Dunbar, and has continued his excellent play into his Senior season, with his team currently enjoying a record of 7 wins and a single loss.

Chris Singleton is a burner by all accounts - the young man can flat out fly.  At a Miami camp this past summer, while admittedly performing below 100%, Singleton ran a 4.5-40.  However, has been clocked at a 4.36-40, and is one of the fastest players in the entire state of Florida.  The talented prospect from Fort Myers has played a variety of positions at Dunbar HS: running back, receiver, and defensive back.  This year, his Senior season at Dunbar, Singleton plays the running back position and in the defensive backfield.  Schools, including Rutgers, are recruiting him as a defensive back.

Dunbar HS is 7 and 1 thus far this season.  Singleton has recorded 2 interceptions, has somewhere between 35 and 40 tackles, and also has 7 touchdowns.  Not getting a significant amount of touches on the offensive side of the ball is alright for Singleton, as his primary preference is the DB position.

Singleton states that he currently has three offers, from East Carolina, South Carolina, and Rutgers. Several schools have shown and continue to show interest in the speedy corner, including Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Clemson.

Singleton indicates that he does not have any favorites and remains "wide open".  "Not really, I don't have any favorites at this time."

With his squad enjoying a successful campaign, Singleton's main focus is on this season.  Official visits, he states, will be planned and taken starting in December, after the conclusion of Dunbar's season.  Rutgers, he indicates, is likely to be one of his official visits.

Singleton states that he is looking for early playing time and those schools that can offer that may have an advantage.  Additionally, he doesn't foresee any problem with playing away from his home state.

Fans shouldn't be looking for an early commitment from Singleton.  Like many other prospects, he is focusing on his season for the time being, and will let the recruiting process take life again, once his Senior season is complete.
