Darron Lee, of New Albany High School (2-2), is a versatile athlete that will suit up for the Silver Bullet defense. As a 2013 commit, the consensus 3* is part of an excellent recruiting class for Ohio State and Head Coach Urban Meyer. At 6’2 and 205 lbs, Lee has a nice frame that has Buckeye fans and coaches wondering where he’ll line up in the Scarlet & Gray.
Lee plays as the FS and QB for New Albany. He accounted for 6 TD’s last weekend and is an underrated playmaker in this class. Lee will almost definitely line up on the defensive side of the ball for the Buckeyes, but at this point, we’re just not sure where he’ll line up because we’re not sure how big he’ll get. He has the frame to fill out and play LB, but I seem to think he’ll play the Star Position like Jermale Hines and Tyler Moeller while they were on the Silver Bullet squad. A big safety like this can be the mark of an elite defense. I mean, look at Taylor Mays while at USC. The guy was built like a LB and made WR’s hate crossing the middle. I guess the current rules kind of take away that element since all of the receivers crossing the middle are no considered “defenseless”, but that’s a discussion for a different time. The point is that Lee could be a very important piece for the future Buckeye defense.
Vonn Bell, the AJC Super 11 safety, had a unique way to narrow down to his three finalists.
The 4-star football recruit from Ridgeland High School threw three loaded questions to each of his seven favorites – Alabama, UGA, Clemson, Tennessee, Ohio State, Texas and Vanderbilt.
“Vonn and his family just wanted the facts from a few fact-finding questions,” Ridgeland coach Mark Mariakis told the AJC. “They had already done all the fluff questions and conversations. They had seen the facilities and trophies. They wanted to get down to the nitty gritty with the facts.”
So what were the three magical questions from Vonn Bell?
- How could you help my job career after college? “He wants to go into coaching at the college level,” Mariakis said. “He just wanted to know what the college could offer in that area of academics with the educational part, the opportunity for a young man to get some job experience, and just what their plan academically was for him.”
- What is your graduation plan for me? “When do they see him graduating at their school?” Mariakis said. “Do they put you on a 3.5-year plan, four-year plan, or for five years? And if a kid gets off track, what do they do to get him back on track?”
- Where and when do I play football? “Third and final were the football questions: Where do they see him playing? How soon do they see him playing?” Mariakis said. “What were their plans for him as a football player in their program?”
Lewis to make announcement (Daily Southerner)
TARBORO — One of the biggest decisions Tarboro Vikings defensive end and tight end Tyquan Lewis will make in his career will come Thursday at 4 p.m. when he decides on which college to carry his football talents to next season.
Lewis has narrowed down his choices to five schools which include Ohio State, UNC, LSU, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss.
Lewis has been thinking over time about his decision and has come to a conclusion and decided he is ready to take the big step and announce his choice.
Lewis said the decision has been very difficult and has been a long path.
His mother, Tyronda Whitaker has been instrumental in helping her son make his choice, according to Lewis.
"My mom has stuck by me the entire way and we have worked it out and made the decision," Lewis said. "It has been difficult on trying to decide where I want to spend the next four years of my life at and where I think I will fit best in college."
The journey began last year for Lewis when he visited Clemson four times. He was sold on Clemson but they have fallen to bottom of Lewis' list.
