College Coaches meet, Laurez Matthews, a 5-10, 175 DB/WR from out of Fort Dorchester High School. Matthews will be returning to the field once again this fall for his final season with the Patriots.
Matthews played a significant role in the secondary for Fort D on last season, where he simply didn't mind getting a little physical at times. In 08' Laurez recorded 58 tackles, 9 PBUs, and 4 TFL. He also picked off a pass, and returned a fumble 43 yards for a score.
Despite his worthy effort on last season, things have been a little quiet on the recruiting front for the talented playmaker. However though, with spring practice just around the corner, Matthews is ready to turn it up a notch and show college coaches that he has what is takes to make it to the next level. "I haven't gotten any attention yet," Matthews said. "But hopefully that'll change this spring when coaches start coming by my school for Spring Practice. We are supposed to start right after track season."
Matthews told SCPrepNation.com that he is hoping to hear from schools within the southeast region. However though, he did make it clear that he'd be willing to travel elsewhere, if the opportunity is right. "I would really like to stay close to home," Matthews said. "But if someone offers me from out west or from up north, I definitely wouldn't turn them down. I'm just looking for someone to give me a chance on the next level."
We will continue to keep close tabs on this 2010 prospect from out of Fort Dorchester High School, so stay tuned with us for the very latest.
