High School Recruiting Journal; Trio Starting to Pick the Leaders


Carlyon, Hays, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Hays Carlyon

National signing day is still eight months away, but college football recruiting has become a year-round process. The Class of 2011 in the Jacksonville area is another strong group. Although they won't sign for awhile, many prospects are well into the decision-making process. Throughout the year, the Times-Union will highlight three area players who will be a few of the most coveted prospects on the First Coast. Every month until national signing day Feb. 2, the trio will share their experiences with sports writer Hays Carlyon, who will write an entry based on their individual recruiting process.

ANDREW BUIE

TRINITY CHRISTIAN

Position: Running back.

Size: 5-10, 190 pounds.

Accolades: Nation's No. 88 overall prospect (No. 17 in Florida) and a four-star recruit, according to Rivals.com.

Notable offers: South Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, North Carolina and Auburn.

In his words: If national signing day was this week, I'm not sure I'd be ready to sign. I'm still pretty cloudy, but I'm starting to get a feeling. I want to have a list of five schools by the end of July.

I can't complain about anything that's happened so far in recruiting. Most kids don't get the opportunity to be recruited and have the chance to play big-time college football, so to me everything has been perfect.

I recently took a trip and visited Auburn, South Carolina, Alabama and Louisville. We weren't in one place for very long. We seemed like we were always on the run, so we didn't do much except look at the stadium and the facilities. There was no time to sit around, hang out and get a feel for the school.

South Carolina and Ole Miss are still the two schools recruiting me the hardest. Tennessee is starting to up its level of interest in me.

I went to a camp at Florida and I guess they are still evaluating me to see if they will offer. I'm not sure what they are doing. There are no hard feelings. A program like that can come into the picture later. I'm more than likely going to their camp Friday Night Lights.

Miami and Florida State still aren't recruiting me. South Florida and Central Florida have picked it up recently.

TONY STEWARD

MENENDEZ

Position: Linebacker.

Size: 6-1, 220 pounds.

Accolades: Nation's No. 2 overall recruit in the country (No. 1 in the state) and a five-star prospect, according to Rivals.com.

Notable offers: Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Alabama and Miami.

In his words: Clemson is my leader. If I had to sign today, I'd sign with Clemson. I went up there for a visit and was just blown away. The whole atmosphere was great. It's a small college town and the people are great. …
