They will definitely be in the running.” His offers are from USC, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Purdue, Southern Miss, Boston College and Cincinnati. He is hearing from Tennessee, Georgia, and Stanford. Sealand has visited Auburn, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Louisville, and Alabama. This summer, he says he plans to attend several camps. “I am definitely going to USC,” he said. “I’m not sure which other schools I’ll go to.” As a junior, he compiled 86 tackles, 30 for loss, six sacks, eight forced fumbles, and two pass deflections.

DB Jordan Diggs (6-1 194) of Cape Coral, FL has offers from USC, Purdue, Maryland, Ohio State, West Virginia, Connecticut, Boston College, Nebraska, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Kansas, Louisville, South Florida, Central Florida, and Auburn among others. Diggs will visit USC during his spring break. “I think it’s in about three weeks,” Diggs said. “It’s sometime around Easter.” He has visited Florida State, Miami, and was at South Florida earlier this week. “It went great,” he said of his USF visit. “They are getting better every year. They haven’t had the facilities in the past but they are really building them up. Coach (Skip) Holtz is a great guy. He tells you like it is.” Diggs says he will visit Ohio State and some other out-of-state schools. “I will start out of state and work my way back to Florida,” he said. “I can visit the Florida schools anytime.” Last season, Diggs had 53 tackles and two interceptions. As a quarterback in the Wildcat formation, he scored two touchdowns. He does not have a favorite.

He says he plans to visit Alabama for their spring game and will head to Georgia as well. “I have to talk to my coach,” Thomas said. “I don’t know which schools he are going to visit.” He went on to say it is early in the recruiting process and he is unsure of his coach’s plans for him. As a junior, Thomas compiled 14 sacks.
WR Mark Irick of Calhoun County picked up an offer from Virginia Tech Tuesday. Irick also has an offer from Kentucky. Irick visited Georgia Tech last weekend where he not only checked out the football program but the engineering school as well. Irick wants to study engineering and that will be a major factor in his decision. Irick’s coach Walt Wilson joined him on the visit and feels Georgia Tech will offer. Clemson and USC also have shown interest in Irick and he’s visited both. Wilson said their next visits won’t be until June when they plan to see NC State, Georgia Tech, USC and Clemson for one day camps.
