Naturally, this red-hot prospect is getting a lot of attention from Southern schools.
Because it's early in the recruiting process, he hasn't singled out a leader for his services. Gamble has a list of top contenders, however.
³I don¹t really have a favorite school,'' he said. ''I¹ve got a top five, though, and that¹s Auburn, Tennessee, South Carolina, Ole Miss and Georgia.''
Rated a four-star prospect, Gamble has hit a few camps for the summer.
''I went to camp at Georgia and I did the 7-on-7 league at Auburn,'' he told Jordan. ''I don¹t plan on any others but schools from the surrounding counties come and play us at our stadium in 7-on-7.''
Getting Gamble away from the homestate Georgia Bulldogs may be difficult. He has developed quite a rapport with Bulldog offensive coordinator Neil Callaway.
''I talk to Coach Callaway at Georgia the most,'' Gamble said. ''I call him a lot. Out of all the coaches he¹s the coolest one.''
Safety is a priority for Tennessee recruiters this year. The Vols have been struggling at the position since losing their top three safeties -- Rashad Baker, Gibril Wilson and Mark Jones -- at the conclusion of the 2003 season. That could mean immediate playing time for Darryl ... if he's winning to Gamble on the Vols.
