One Midwestern prospect to keep an eye on as camp season kicks off is Argo Community High's Corde O'Neal, a 6-foot-3, 202-pound rising senior who had a big junior year (film here) at wide receiver, but could project to several different positions come college.
"I'm being recruited as an athlete really," he says. "I played a lot of different positions, but some schools would like me to get bigger to play outside linebacker."
"When I got Ball State, it was a great feeling. It was a lot of pressure taken off me. It was exciting and I thank them for that opportunity."
In addition to those who have offered, there are many others in contact, including a few BCS programs looking to see more of him at camp time.
In the span of a month, O'Neal has gone from relatively unknown with no offers to having a half a dozen with more possibly on the way.
Since the rise in his recruitment has been so quick, he is still unsure of when he would like to make a commitment.
"I haven't decided yet, but probably a little before the season, but if not, then mid-season."
