USA Pursuing Blount Athletes
"It's going pretty good with both those kids," he said. "A lot of schools are showing interest in them. Clint Marsh has an offer from Alabama State. Quintin Jackson hasn't received his first offer yet but things are going good with him recruiting-wise. A lot of schools have been calling and showing interest in both guys."
When asked what other Blount players the Jaguars are pursuing, Coach Sigler had this to say:
"Jonathan Evans, a linebacker we have here, has an offer from South Alabama. He's an Auburn commitment right now. Also, South Alabama offered our running back, Enrique Williams. He was offered by Ole Miss a few weeks ago as a linebacker. They're also looking at a couple of defensive backs. Eric Graham, who's a cornerback that has interest from Vandy, Middle Tennessee State, Ole Miss and Florida State. Also, Tayon Lawson is a safety that South has been showing interest in as well."
While it seems that USA has long odds to beat to land some of these players that are getting interest from BCS conference teams, Coach Sigler agrees with their philosophy.
"It's good for South to get their name out there," he said. "You never know about a kid. That's what I said to them the other day. Just take a chance on them. You never know when a kid may not want to leave home. Just stick your neck out there and give yourself a chance. Don't say ‘no' to anybody."
As high school summer practice heats up, so will South Alabama's recruiting efforts. Count on Jagsjungle.com to keep you updated as we get closer to Signing Day 2009 and USA first full class.
