Garden City duo turning heads
- - Garden City Community College (Kan.) produced one of the most electric prospects in the nation last year in quarterback Nick Marshall. This year, two more prospects are catching the attention of programs across the nation.
Offensive tackle Dontavius Blair is 6-foot-8, 300-pounds with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas, Kansas State, UL-Lafayette, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, South Florida, Tennessee, Southern Cal and West Virginia.
"I don't have any leaders, I haven't broken anything down yet, but I'm on the edge of leaning to the SEC," Blair said.
Blair is originally from Anniston High School (Ala.) and spoke with Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee on Thursday. The Tigers are showing interest and Blair plans to visit Auburn this summer, along with Tennessee.
Blair said the Vols are recruiting him the hardest.
"I'm definitely visiting Tennessee, and I talked to Auburn and I'll probably visit them when I'm home this summer," said Blair.
Blair doesn't have a timetable for a decision.
Running back Tyreek Hill is an extremely well-built 5-foot-9, 187-pounds. Hill rushed for 389 yards and two touchdowns, while notching 713 yards and five touchdowns receiving during his freshman season last fall.
Hill projects as a slot receiver on the next level, despite splitting time between the two positions last fall.
Hill hails from Coffee High School (Ga.) and claims offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma State, LSU, Alabama, Arizona State, Arizona, Kansas State, UL-Lafayette, Southern Cal and UCLA. He said Tennessee and South Carolina are also showing interest and said Oklahoma State is recruiting him the hardest.
"My top three are USC, Oklahoma State and UCLA," said Hill. "I'm going to visit Georgia and Auburn, when I talk to them."
On Wednesday, there was mail from Southern Cal, Kansas State, Auburn and Tennessee sitting on Garden City football coach Matt Miller's desk for Hill.
Hill has an opportunity to be a standout football player or a track star in college. On May 26, 2012, at the 36th Golden South Classic in Orlando, Fla., Hill ran new personal bests in the 100 m (10.19) and 200 m (20.14). His time in the 200 m missed Roy Martin's 1985 national high school record by only one hundredth of a second. As of May 2012, it is the fastest time by a junior athlete in the 2012 season.
Hill wants to commit in the middle of next fall.
