Clemson Offers in-state Running Back
Anderson (SC) T.L. Hanna running back Brian Maddox (6-2, 215lbs) is now touting seven scholarship offers with more sure to follow. Maddox, who has been slotted as SCVarsity.com's top running back from the Class of 2007, received an offer that was expected from an ACC power.
The Clemson Tigers became the seventh school to extend an offer to Maddox.
"As of right now, I've got seven scholarship offers," said Madddox. South Carolina, Duke, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, and NC State have all offered the big running back.
Maddox will be busy over the next five weekends, as he plans on being on a different campus each week.
"I'll be going to North Carolina this weekend, and Auburn the weekend after that." All of those will be Junior Days. After Auburn, Maddox will use the following two weekends to go to Virginia Tech and NC State on unofficial visits.
Maddox will also be busy this Spring running track and working out for football. He is running the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4x100 relay for the Yellow Jackets and has his father putting him through off-season football workouts.
What will it take for recruiters to land this outstanding running back?
"I'm looking for several things that are important," said Maddox. "First of all, they have to have a good engineering program. As for football, I'm looking at how they use their running backs in the running game and passing game, as well as early playing time."
This past season, Maddox rushed for 1,328 yards and 21 scores, had 405 yards receiving and two more scores, and had 360 return yards on special teams.
