It's hard to devise a strategy to slow down 2014 Mauldin quarterback/athlete Dre Massey. Opposing teams have tried all season long but the numbers are that of a video game usually for Massey each time out it seems. We caught up with Massey as new ACC and Pac-12 schools are showing interest.
"The game against Gaffney really opened some eyes. Me and Shaq Davidson (Gaffney HS & South Carolina commitment) combined for more than 1,000 yards of offense. I had 6 touchdowns with 576 yards on the night."
Since the Gaffney game and as his numbers continue to rise more new schools have entered the mix for Massey he says.
Massey holds an offer from Marshall and has strong interest from a lot of other schools here on the east coast. Who could be the next to offer?
"I would say Oregon State is definitely offering me sometime soon. They want me at corner and wide receiver. They've just been keeping in touch. I'm waiting on my plane ticket really so I can see what they are all about and I can't wait."
As mentioned Massey will take visits to NC State and Maryland next month. He talked briefly about what those programs have said so far.
"North Carolina State I will be going to see them take on North Carolina. I've been talking to the coach and he said that he's really excited to have me come up and see their campus and facilities. They like me at wide receiver."
Maryland likes me at wide receiver too. Coach Andre Powell will be coming down to see me after their season. We talk on the phone and he is from this area. He is really cool."
According to Massey his guidance counselor says that schools from all over the country have been calling for his transcripts.
"I'm just gonna let the offers pile up before I make a decision. My counselor says they all call her and that I'll get all my offers at the end of the season. There were a lot of coaches from different schools at the Gaffney game so I've been hearing from them too."
As far as a timetable on his commitment is concerned Massey says he wants to make sure that he's 110% sure about making his choice before revealing his decision.
