Etowah safety Jordan Padgett is anticipating an offer from Indiana, Etowah coach Bill Stewart said. "We will know by the end of this weekend," Stewart said. "It's looking like it's going to happen." Padgett, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior, currently has offers from Air Force, Western Michigan, Navy and Miami-Ohio. Stewart said he had an in-home visit from Air Force coaches earlier this week and has an official visit scheduled for Miami-Ohio on Dec. 13. "Going to Miami-Ohio with his teammate Ishmael White is a definite possibility," Stewart said. "But I know Indiana is definitely interested." Stewart said his top choices are Air Force, Indiana and Miami-Ohio.
Sprayberry tailback David Carter has received plenty of interest from a variety of SEC schools. Right now, that’s all it is. Carter is waiting on his first scholarship offer, but there is little doubt one should come soon. Carter rushed for 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons for the Yellow Jackets. He looks forward to the chance to prove himself on another stage. “I think I’ve got the vision and size you need to be a good running back in college,” Carter said. “I just need someone to give me that chance. I think it will come.” Carter just returned from a visit to Furman and liked what it had to offer. Vanderbilt has been in regular contact with Carter, and he visited South Carolina during the Gamecocks’ spring game. Air Force, Miami (Ohio), Coastal Carolina and Western Carolina have all been in contact with the Sprayberry senior
North Gwinnett’s Michael Tamburo is getting more attention from mid-level programs, but he’s still holding out for bigger offers. Liberty recently offered a scholarship to the 6-1, 185 pound quarterback and Ohio University contacted North Gwinnett coach Bob Sphire on Wednesday. Memphis also left a message with the coach wanting to know if Tamburo had committed. “I’m assuming they’re getting ready to offer,” Sphire said. Tamburo has offers from Air Force, Tulsa, Louisiana-Monroe, Toledo and Bowling Green. He also has visited Central Florida and South Florida. Sphire, who earlier this month sent out video to more than 450 schools, said interest is picking up in Tamburo. “All this stuff is starting to happen a little bit,” Sphire said, but added that his quarterback is very low key about it. “Right now, he’s just trying to help us win a championship. He’s focused on the team first.”
Vanderbilt is keeping in contact with Newnan quarterback Russell Powell, who said he is undecided between playing football or basketball in college. “I talked to Vanderbilt the other day, they told me that are recruiting me as an athlete,” Powell said. “They like me at wide reciever or cornerback.” The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Powell said he was told by Vanderbilt that he was still under consideration for a football scholarship, and they would know after evaluating film of the first few games of his senior year. “I feel really good about Vanderbilt’s interest,” Powell said. “It’s one of the top academic schools in the nation. I’m looking for a college to play sports and get a great education.” Powell’s only offer in football is from Air Force, while he also has strong interest from Wofford. In basketball, the point guard has been offered by Furman, Gardner-Webb, Toledo and Harvard
Running back Alfred Moreland and six of his Banneker teammates drove an SUV to Columbia for Saturday’s Georgia-South Carolina SEC showdown. “South Carolina is interested in a couple of players that I play with,” said Moreland, whose group included Emmanuel Lartey, the 45th-best cornerback in the nation according to Scout.com. “We all got to get on the field before the game. It was a great atmosphere. If I had the chance, I would consider going there.” Moreland has a scholarship offer from Air Force and is receiving interest from Boston College and Middle Tennessee State. The same group plans to take another road trip this fall. I know we’re going to a Tennessee game later on in the year,” said Moreland, an AJC’s The Georgia Top 150 selection.
