Still Searching

Datruan Poole out of Atlanta, Ga., is holding a couple BCS offers and is looking for more. The 6' 3", 200-pound receiver showed up at the Ole Miss Elite Camp in June with hopes of earning a scholarship.

"I am hoping to open a lot of eyes," Poole said. I want to show people I am willing to work, and I am good player. I have not really talked to Ole Miss a lot. I talked to coach (Grant) Heard when he came by the school but he has not said much. He wanted me to come to the camp to see what I had so I wanted to show my face. I know Mike Wallace went to Ole Miss. I really like him. That is what got me looking there."

Poole was hurt for most of the season last year for Hapeville Charter but mostly played quarterback when healthy. He looks at himself as a receiver on the next level.

"I can catch a lot of balls. I am not really a speed guy. I am a very good possession guy. I catch everything thrown my way. I will be playing mostly receiver this year."

Datruan has caught the eye of a couple colleges so far.

"I have been offered by Kentucky and Arizona State. Tennessee is getting close to offering. They are showing me a lot of interest. I like Georgia too. They are showing me a lot of interest as well. I went up there for their Jr Day. I am still trying to pick up a lot of schools."

Where Will Poole visit next?

"I am going to South Carolina for sure. My coach is going to set up the rest of my visits. I plan on attending three or four more schools this summer."
