Can you imagine having 54 scholarship offers before your junior year is even over?
Ricky DeBerry is in that boat. And with that boat-load of offers, the four-star LB/DE knew he needed to trim the list down soon. On Monday, he took that group of 54 and whittled it down to a list of 20–and eight SEC schools made that cut. Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas A&M made it to DeBerry’s second round.
DeBerry–a national top 100 prospect–is a 6-foot-3, 245-pounder out of Richmond (Va.). His Crystal Ball media picks on 247Sports.com are as diverse as his final 20. Oklahoma, Ohio State, North Carolina, Michigan State and Tennessee have all been picked as his ultimate destination, for what that’s worth. He did check out Tennessee on an unofficial visit in mid March.
He told 247Sports.com he doesn’t have a definite date to trim to a top 10, but late July may be a goal.
