Randon Carnathan commits to South Alabama

JagsJungle.com caught up to the talented duo from Leeds High School this evening, and they shared their thought's of becoming part of the first University of South Alabama football team to ever hit the grid iron. Randon Carnathan is our first interview in this two part series'.

Randon Carnathan is a 6-2, 265-pound defensive tackle for the Leeds Green Wave, while his teammate, Tony Threatt, is a 6-3, 195-pound defensive back/wide receiver for the undefeated Green Wave.

JagsJungle.com caught up with Randon Carnathan at his home in Leeds (Ala.), and he discussed his future with the Jaguars of South Alabama.

"South Alabama put forth a lot of effort recruiting me," Randon commented. "Coach [Bill] Clark did a good job of recruiting us, and I really like Coach Clark and the other coaches at South Alabama."

Carnathan picked South Alabama over Army, Arkansas State and Southern Miss.

"I talked to the coaches at Southern Miss two weeks ago, and I told them what my plans were at that time. I had been strongly considering South Alabama since I took an unofficial visit there a while back."

"Southern Miss was one of the first teams to offer me a scholarship, and they have a good program. It was hard to say no to them – it's hard to say no to any of them, but you have to choose where you feel most comfortable, and South Alabama is that place," Carnathan stated.

"Arkansas State and Army have done a nice job recruiting me, but no school, or coach has put in the time South Alabama and Coach Clark has."

Randon Carnathan also commented on becoming part of the first football team at the University of South Alabama.

"I believe it's a real challenge for me to be a part of the first team at South Alabama," Carnathan noted. "It will be my responsibility to go in there and help build a winning program for years to come."

Randon Carnathan, Tony Threatt and the rest of the Leeds Green Wave team are 4-0 early in the season, and they look as though they could be contenders for a 3A title run.

"We are undefeated this season, but our hardest game to this point will come this weekend. We play Saint Clair County this week, and they have a good football team," Carnathan concluded.
