Shelby (NC) Crest running back Travis Padgett One of the fastest players in the state of N. Carolina is Shelby Crest running back Travis Padgett. He stands at 5'10, 180-pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.
Travis didn't play football last year, but during his sophomore season he rushed for over 1,400 yards and scored 18 touchdowns.
"My top schools now are South Carolina, Duke, and NC State," said Padgett. "I'm looking for great academics and a solid football program." Travis has received an offer from Duke.
"I will wait till the season is over before I make a decision." Responded Travis to question about his timetable for making a commitment.
"I want to work on my vision and pass catching this season, and I want to rush for at least two thousand yards."
Padgett recently displayed his speed at the Nike Camp at Georgia Tech and also plans to attend NC State's summer camp in June.
Travis has already taken several unofficial visits to S. Carolina and Duke. This past spring Travis was a visitor at the spring games at S. Carolina and NC State.
"The love of the game, the excitement is why I play football" was Travis response to why he played.
Padgett is doing well in the classroom as he boasts a 3.5 GPA at this time.
