RECRUITING BRIEFS: Albert McClellan
While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source.
In these Recruiting Briefs, I will try and give you some quick points about the athlete. If you should need a more extensive evaluation, please feel free to e-mail me at FloridaKids1@hotmail.com.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
SCHOOL: Lakeland Kathleen
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: Not rated
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Having watched his brother (Julius) play this sport and run track three years ago, it really doesn't come as any surprise to see this young man step up and make a statement.
EVALUATION: "When I look at Albert, I see a player who is the classic 'tweener', and for that reason, there hasn't been that mad rush by the elite schools to recruit him. However, he has received plenty of interest.
While he doesn't have anywhere near the top speed his brother had – or still has – this is a young man who can play two different positions (linebacker and defensive end) and impress at either one. Is surrounded by a number of quality football players on one of the state's most athletic programs.
To better apperciate what he does for a team, just follow him throughout the course of a game."
THE INSIDE STORY: There are some who want to rush him among the elite players in the state while there are others who haven't included him in their top 100. I am in the midedle of the road, believing that he needs a very productive 2004 to move into that elite company.
