Gaither has huge upside

Check out the first-year defensive tackle exploding onto the scene for one of the nation's top teams in this exclusive 1:19 video -- Jared Gaither ...

As noted in our last report, Eleanor Roosevelt (MD) defensive tackle Jared Gaither is off to a great first and final season of playing football. Many schools are starting to find out about the 6-foot-9, 290 pounder committed to South Carolina for basketball.

His footwork and speed on the court translates well onto the football field as he currently has ten sacks already on the year. Perhaps partially aided by number 2 defensive end in the nation on one side and Maryland commitment George Covington on the other, Gaither has shown flashes of a gigantic light flipping on and the untapped potential becoming real.
