Top Recruit Finds His Way to Oxford, Ohio
DeLeon is a 6' 1", 275 pound run stopper that recorded 65 tackles and 8 sacks as a junior. His success has David ranked as a consensus top fifty tackle nationally and he recently made time to talk with Redhawk Insider before his visit to Oxford. "I've heard a lot about the quality academics and how great the campus is, but I'm excited to learn more about Miami," he said. But what is it exactly that David is looking for in a football program and college? "My biggest thing is getting better as a player. Working hard and getting better is goal number one. I also really want a school that offers good academics," he said. Miami has developed a solid track record at developing talent and obviously offers a great education, so could Oxford become his destination in Fall 2012? "Yes, sir, it definitely could," he replied, recognizing his opportunity to play for four years and receive a first class degree. "I'm just excited to get up there and see what it's all about."
Veteran Bamberg coach, Kevin Crosby also spoke with Redhawk Insider and discussed his talented defensive line, "Our goal this fall will be to hold teams to negative rushing yards." And that is a legitimate possibility with his line. "These guys are really working hard in the off season," he added. When asked about David DeLeon's college opportunities, Coach Crosby said, "David's looking to find the best fit, be able to play and win games early, and get a good education. Most importantly, though, is finding a good football family to develop in." If Miami can offer all that, he added, "they've got a good chance."
On the day of DeLeon's visit, Bamberg's coach announced to South Carolina media that David will be announcing his decision on July 9th after making visits to Kentucky and Marshall. For now, it's fingers-crossed in Oxford as the new staff awaits word from one of their biggest recruiting targets.
