Fullerton's Black wants to get on the radar

A defensive back prospect that has flown under-the-radar so far this season is Fullerton CB Conroy Black (6-1, 185), but he's hoping a good start to the 2008 will put him in front of some D-1 programs. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented corner and he updated us on things including how he ended up heading to southern California from the Sunshine State.

Black prepped at Everglades High School in Miramar, Florida and he was a standout on his team, however lack of concentration in the classroom put a hold on his plans to play D-1 ball.

"I had teams looking at me in high school, but I didn't qualify," Black told JCFootball.com recently. "When I was looking around at colleges, everyone told me that the best JC ball was played out in California, so I started to look harder there and I ended up at East LA.

"Then, this spring, I decided to head to Fullerton because I really liked the coaches here and they play at such a high level, it just was the right move for me."

That definitely appears to be the case as Black already has 10 tackles, a blocked punt and a blocked field goal that he returned for the a touchdown.

Along with his prototypical size, Black has incredible speed (4.35) and he also has good strength, repping 225 pounds 10 times on the bench.

"I like to play bump and run and play physical with wide receivers," Black said. "I take pride in being able to play off or play man-to-man and do both well."

On the recruiting front, Black says schools haven't been knocking on his door much so far this year and he thinks that is because he's moved around a little.

"I don't think schools know where I'm at right now," Black said. "I'm going to get some film out to a bunch of schools and hopefully that will help out.

"I'm open to going anywhere. Of course I'd like to go back home to Florida, but it doesn't matter. I just want the chance to play ball somewhere. I can play safety or corner, whichever a school wants me to play."

Black will graduate with his AA degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
