The young Powdersville High School football program burst on the scene this past season winning its first region title. With success comes recruiting attention and RB EJ Humphrey (5-10 170) is starting to see it come his way after a season of 1685 rushing yards, 2061 all purpose yards and 30 touchdowns.
“I have not received an official offer as of yet but think that will happen soon,” Humphrey said. “I’ve been receiving a lot of attention from South Carolina, Virginia Tech, NC State, North Carolina, and Coastal Carolina amongst others.”
Humphrey said the Gamecocks have been active in showing interest at this point and he’s hoping for more from them.
“I have spoken on several occasion with coach Bentley and he has advised me and my coach Robert Mustar that I am high in their list,” Humphrey said. “They are not going to take any running back in 2017 and will take two in 2018. What South Carolina likse about me is my vision and speed, and I have good hands. I love South Carolina. I have a sister who graduated from there last December and one who still attends South Carolina, so my family and I are very familiar with the campus and Columbia.”
Humphrey visited USC and Appalachian State during the season. He had planned to visit Virginia Tech and Coastal Carolina but didn’t make those visits. He is going to North Carolina February 4th for a basketball game and he is planning to go to USC, Virginia Tech and Coastal for junior day events.
