Hawkinsville WR Getting Early Attention

Kamaron Riley is a wide receiver/defensive back prospect out of Hawkinsville High. He is considered one of the top players in the Middle Georgia area for 2008 and he already has a leader.

Kamaron Riley, a defensive back/wide receiver from Hawkinsville (Ga), had a splendid junior season and is quickly making his way onto the recruiting scene.   

"I've been getting letters from Georgia Tech, Clemson and Florida," said Riley.  "Georgia Tech has been recruiting me pretty hard.  Coach (Giff) Smith came by to talk to me just the other day.  Coach (David) Johnson at Georgia invited me to their junior day this weekend, so things are going pretty good."

Riley said he would not be able to attend the Georgia Junior Day.  He also plays basketball for Hawkinsville and the Region 2-A championship game will be played on Saturday.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder did travel to Gainesville, Fla. a couple of weeks ago for the Florida Junior Day and came away impressed with the Gators program.

"We visited the athletic facility and Coach Urban Meyer walked with us around the campus the whole time. He's a cool coach.  I didn't get to speak to him, but I did speak to Coach Billy Gonzales, the wide receivers coach.  He's a good guy. He said he wants us to come down there during the spring and watch them practice."

Riley admits that there are two schools sticking out a little above the rest at this point.

"My leader is Georgia Tech and then it's Florida," Riley said.

Georgia Tech - "The environment is great at Georgia Tech. Their coaches treat you well." 

Florida - "They are the National Champions and I liked the attention I got from their coaching staff  while I was there."

Kamaron Riley had 43 receptions (a Hawkinsville record) for 702 yards and 8 touchdowns as a junior.

He is a good student and he just recently took the SAT for the first time.  He should be getting his score back shortly.
