Greg Hinds is a multi-faceted athlete at South Haven High School in Mississippi that is going to get the chance to play yet another position full time this year. He played quarterback, running back, and wide receiver on offense last season, but this year he is going to be playing running back full time along with his customary slot at free safety.
"I played a little bit of all of those positions last year," said Hinds. "This year I'll be playing full time running back and free safety. I had 109 tackles and six interceptions last year at safety. Right now, everyone is recruiting me for safety."
Hinds made it to Auburn twice this summer for camps. Once to the Nike Camp, and once for the senior camp, and Auburn is one of many schools that Hinds is considering right now.
"I like Auburn, Michigan, South Carolina, Mississippi State, and LSU right now. I have offers from all of them. I don't really have any favorites out of those teams; they are all pretty equal."
At just under 6-0 tall and already over 200 pounds with 4.6 speed, it's conceivable that Hinds ends up playing a linebacker position on the next level instead of safety. A great year at running back, could throw a wrench into all of those plans though.
