Streeter Focused On Title Run
Tommy Streeter is one of the wide receiver prospects from the talent rich state of Florida. Streeter, from Miami (Fla.) Northwestern, plays alongside another big time wideout in teammate Aldarius Johnson. They could pose the best 1-2 punch at the wide receiver position in the nation. "It is hard to defend us," said Streeter. "But it's not just me and Aldarius. We have three other guys - Kendall Thompkins, Robert Demps, and Brandon Drayton. There is not a better wide receiver unit in the nation I can promise you that. If teams try to take away me or Aldarius one of these other guys can kill you. It could be any one of us on any given night. All these guys can play." Don't forget that Northwestern is quarterbacked by Miami bound Jacory Harris. This team, especially from a passing standpoint, is so hard to defend. Having said that, Streeter and his teammates have seen some crazy coverages this season. "We were playing Carol City and all 11 of their defensive guys were in the box. It was crazy. When the ball was snapped they all scattered all over the place into a cover two. I have never seen anything like that. I also see a lot of double teams, with a corner on me and a safety deep and then teams will try and drop a linebacker out there too. It can be frustrating some times but we have other guys that can beat you." In terms of recruiting Streeter shows little concern at this time about his decision. His main concern is his teammates and winning another state title. So far he has one official visit under his belt. "I visited Boston College for an official visit (9-22) with Jacory. It was an experience that I will never forget. I love the environment and it is so safe up there. I mean you can leave your wallet with money in it in the hallway and it will all be there when you get back. That's something I am really not used to here. BC has great support, like really like the coaching staff and it's really like a family atmosphere up there." At this time Streeter says he is talking a lot with South Carolina and one of their assistant coaches, Robert Gillespie. "It looks like I will visit South Carolina. I just not have set up a visit yet. I like their offense and I know they want to throw the football. I also like coach Steve Spurrier and I have a lot of interest in playing for him." Although Streeter didn't really want to talk about other teams he did list Florida State, USF, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Miami as potential schools. "I have been watching FSU a lot lately. I like watching (QB) Xavier (Lee) play. Man he has great athleticism. They also have that big receiver (Greg Carr) and he made a great catch last week. "Pitt. is a team I like but I really don't know that much about them yet. "USF is a hot team right now. I really like how they spread the field and play five wides. Everyone touches the ball in that offense and they all contribute like us. "One of my former teammates (Tim Brown, WR) plays at Rutgers so I am looking at them too." When it's all said and done though everyone will have to likely beat the Hurricanes for Streeter. Right now he has five teammates already committed to Miami and the pressure is there for him to follow. "There is a lot of pressure for me to go to Miami and I do like them. I went to the (Texas) A&M game earlier this year and it was crazy. Fans were chanting my name and asking for autographs. The media there was all over me. All my teammates that are going there are in my ear every day. The community is in my ear every day. But in the end, I know I have to make a decision that is best for me. I want to find a place where I feel comfortable, where they have good graduation rates and I want to play early." Miami Northwestern is currently the No. 1 ranked team in the nation and they are 5-0 on the season.
