Devontae McCrae talks about his offer to Southern Miss

Southern Miss gets in early on talented DE Davontae McCrae of Northwestern HS in Miami, FL.

DaVontae McCrae is an emerging star out of south Florida, an area that Southern Miss is working hard to establish as part of its recruiting base.  

The talented rising senior (6'5, 255) is making a huge name for himself.  Quick off the ball with great speed and size, McCrae will be a force at the next level.  

Southern Miss recently got in on the talented prospect. 

"Coach Pecoraro called and explained how genuine care for me was waiting for me at Southern Miss," he told

"He said he wanted to tell me all about the history of the program and the 'Nasty Bunch."

He has also been offered by Louisville, FAU, NC State, FIU, UCF, Toledo, and Florida A & M.  He is also hearing from a dozen or so other schools.  

"Right now, I don't have any leaders," he said.  "I'm just going to take my time and let the process play out."
