Another Offer For Jamal Paige

College Park, GA - Woodward Academy running back Jamal Paige recently picked up offer number four from a Conference USA school. GAVSV.com spoke to Paige to find out the latest in his recruitment.

Jamal Paige, a Scout.com two-star running back saw his offer total rise as UAB became the latest program to offer the Woodward Academy product.

"UAB is my latest offer," said Paige. "They are recruiting me as a running back."

The Blazers become the fourth school to extend an offer to the 5-foot-8, 165 pounder - joining Navy, Army, and Air Force.

Which school stands out for Paige?

"As far as recruiting right now, I guess my No. 1 would be UAB," he said. "They have a really good football program. They're on the rise. The secondary coach Corey Barlow is my recruiting coach for them. I really enjoyed talking to him."

"Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest are the other schools that I'm really interested in as well."

As a junior, Paige accounted for over 1,000 all-purpose yards and 9 total touchdowns to help lead Woodward Academy to a 7-3 record. Despite their gaudy record, the War Eagles did not make the playoffs in 2006.

"We had a good season last year, but we didn't make the playoffs," Paige said. "We were beat out by Creekside, Westlake, Starr's Mill, and all of those guys. I think just getting to the playoffs is going to be our number one focus this season."

"I'm a Team Captain now, so all the eyes are going to be on me. I'm just going to try and show leadership in all areas of the game."

Paige camped at Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, and Duke earlier this summer. Wake Forest, UAB, Virginia Tech, and Vanderbilt are four schools he wants to give official visits.
