Bembry enjoys visit from Coach Wommack

Daquan Bembry of Hawkinsville High is one of the top defensive backs still available in the Class of 2007. Bembry, a Scout.com two-star prospect, is being heavily recruited by several top programs in the Southeast.

Daquan Bembry was a force on both sides of the ball for the Red Devils, who finished 9-4 after losing to Lincoln County 31-7 in the state quarterfinals. He had 971 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns, made more than 60 tackles and had two interceptions including one returned for a touchdown.

Bembry has offers from Georgia Southern, Kentucky, Troy and Southern Miss. He doesn't get a lot of hype but several schools are showing a lot of interest.

Daquan's recruitment has really picked up as of late and he recently received an in-home visit from South Carolina linebacker coach Dave Wommack.

"Coach Wommack came by the other night," said Bembry. "He talked to my Grandma about how the facility was and how it would be for my official visit. He was just basically talking about what it would be like for an average football player at South Carolina in the off-season and during the season."

"He said that an offer was very possible, but he wanted to take my highlight tape back and show it to the other coaches."

The 5-foot-9, 175 pound standout from Hawkinsville (GA) was recently selected to play in the GACA North-South All-Star Game on Dec. 29th in Columbus.

When will Bembry take his official visits?

"I plan on taking all of my visits in January," he said. "I'm going to South Carolina on January 12th and I'm going to Kentucky on January 19th. That's all I have planned right now."

Bembry currently has two schools at the top of his list.

"South Carolina and Kentucky are really recruiting me," Bembry said. "Those are my top two schools right now."

It would be very interesting to see where the Gamecocks would stand if they were to come back to Bembry with an offer.
