Clinton RB Darius Maberry commits to Southern Miss

Southern Miss has once again gone in-state to land another commitment..

Darius Maberry is a talented RB from Clinton (MS) who has made his intentions known and has committed to Southern Miss.  Maberry can play both sides of the ball, and is an explosive athlete who brings a lot of speed with him to Hattiesburg.  

For Maberry, the commitment boiled down to the coaching staff and them simply winning him over.

"The amount of love that the coaching staff showed me and just the overall support I felt from them really made the difference in my commitment to them," Maberry told

Also, the chance to be close to home was a big key for him.  

"I'm really excited," he said.  "My family can now come see me play and I'm not to far from home."

Maberry plays on both sides of the ball for Clinton, and the staff has given him their idea of what they see for him.

"They said they see me as an explosive Running back or as one who can be used out of the slot," he said.  "They want me to make plays."

In the wide open offense of Coach Dawson, Maberry will certainly have plenty of opportunities to make plays in space.
