Spring Valley DE Lists USC

Lou Holtz's coaches will be spending a lot of time close to home this fall, in search of signing two of the better athletes in the state of South Carolina this year - both at Spring Valley ...

Big time college football prospects aren't always the best players on their team growing up. Some players like Spring Valley's Mack Frost come into their own late in their high school careers as their bodies begin to fill out. That's exactly the case with Frost as he is now quickly becoming one of the best defensive end prospects in the south.

"He's just now coming into his own at defensive end," said Head Coach Jimmy Noonan. "He only played last year at like 220 pounds. He was all knees and elbows," added Coach Noonan with a laugh. "He was still our MVP on defense. He had 82 tackles and 5 sacks. He also knocked down 8 passes. Everyone that has seen him on film so far has offered him. He wears a size 16 shoe, and he has a well over 30 inch vertical leap."

Frost may be a late bloomer in high school, but he is filling out just in time for him to get looks from colleges across the region. He has received offers so far from South Carolina, Clemson, Maryland, and Duke, but it's an out of state school that is currently leading for Frost.

"My favorite right now is Georgia," said Frost. "I'm going there for Junior Day. I'm going to try and get to camps at South Carolina and Maryland too. My other favorite teams right now are probably Virginia, NC State, Tennessee, and South Carolina."

Frost had an excellent season as a junior, but he has the potential to be one of the top players in the south this year. Based on his physical potential alone, he is already one of the top prospects.

Frost is a teammate of another South Carolina offeree ... Leon Hart.
