Class of 2020 big man Treyshaun Mitchell (2020 DT 6-3 320) has quite a budding recruitment going.
Mitchell holds offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, East Carolina, Temple and Purdue.
On Thursday, Treyshaun picked up a scholarship offer from South Carolina.
King’s Fork Head Coach Scottie Littles was thrilled to share the news of Mitchell’s new offer.
“Man, he is pumped about a South Carolina offer. He loves the SEC,” said Littles. “He’s 320 and runs a 4.9 forty. He’s quick, athletic, strong and explosive off the ball. He splits double teams. As good of a football player as he is, he is an even better person.”
“I talked to both Coach Krantz and Coach Thompson. They love his rare combination of size and athletic ability,” Littles said.
Coach Littles also gave us an update on some of his other athletes.
“Jayree Hardy (2019 DT 6-2 290) is up to Temple, ODU, Marshall, NSU, Hampton, Campbell with a ton more coming.”
“Elijah Askew (2019 LB 6-2 235) has no offers yet but recruitment is taking off.”
“Garret Williams (2020 DB 5-10 175) getting a lot interest.”
“Devin Chambliss (2019 LB 6-0 220) is on the verge of several offers. He already has an Alabama State offer.”
“Bobby Boone (2019 DB 5-10 160) has Hampton, Norfolk State and North Carolina Central offers.”
“Leo Wethington (2020 RB 5-8 185), who is Deshaun Wethington’s little brother, is getting some early looks. There are a bunch of kids working hard and getting recruited at the Fork!”
There’s an additional item to note about Leo Wethington. Last year, the majority of the carries were handled by mighty-mite tailback Darran Butts. Now that Butts has graduated and will be heading to Hampton University, Wethington is expected to carry the load just like his older brother did.
After beating Oscar Smith in 2017 and winning a share of the Southeastern District title, expectations are high at King’s Fork.
