Demario Pressley is considered to be the top prospect in the state of North Carolina early in the process, and he certainly has the rsum. At 6-4 and 290 pounds, Pressley runs a sub 5.0 forty. He faced double team after double team last year, and he still managed 97 tackles and 14 sacks.

Who are the early leaders for this spectacular player? No one knows, not even Pressley.

"I haven't really thought about it yet," said Pressley. "I know I'm going to summer camps at Notre Dame and Tennessee, but they're not really ahead of anyone else. I don't have any favorites yet. I've gotten offers from just about everyone in the ACC except Florida State right now. Georgia is recruiting me pretty hard. I'm not in any hurry though."

Pressley started at defensive tackle as a junior, but this year he will see full time action on both sides of the ball. He likes playing defense better, and that is where he is best suited on the college level.
