We had a chance to evaluate one of the top ' 09 QB prospects at the South Panola scrimmage on Friday.
David Renfroe played behind two time all-state selection, LeRoy Diggs, as a sophomore. He got in some reps during the second half for a few of the games, but he certainly did not receive enough snaps to gain the attention of the recruiting fans throughout the state.
We had heard whispers that this blue chip pitching baseball prospect could be just as good on the gridiron as he is on the diamond. In baseball, he was clocked at 94 MPH as only a sophomore. He certainly will be rated as one of the top baseball prospects in the country for his class.
Will he be ranked in football?
David will be the first to tell you that baseball is his first love, but after watching him in a scrimmage against the 4 peat Class 5A state champ's first string defense, it is obvious that Renfroe could be just as intriguing or even more intriguing of a prospect in football.
Renfroe just looks like a natural at QB. He has
the body frame, already in the 6' 3", 175 range and is only a 15 year old
kid. David has an arm that we have not observed from the magnolia state in the
9 years I have been in the business. Not only is it strong, but he can throw the
touch pass or fade as good as most high D1 college prospects. And remember, he
is only 15 years old.
If you are wondering about his footwork, don't, as Renfroe constantly avoided the pressure from all everything Bud Barksdale, Darius Barksdale, Charles Corley, and Terrance Pope.
The only knock
I could see with Renfroe was that he is lacked playing experience, as obvious
by several fumbled snaps and hurried passes during the scrimmage.
It will be interesting to see which path David takes, football or baseball or maybe both?
Which ever sport he decides on, he will be one to watch.
We had a chance to interview David after the scrimmage, and he had the following to say:
