Drummond Has Four Offers
Hubbard High School is just outside of Youngstown near the Ohio-Pennsylvania border. The school went 9-3 on the gridiron last year and has a talented squad returning which makes them one of the teams to watch in 2009. One of those key returnees is Kurtis Drummond. The 6'3, 180-lb junior was a big target on offense, catching 16 passes for 281 yards and four touchdowns from his receiver spot. On defense, he lined up on the corner at grabbed three interceptions and made 49 tackles and two sacks. This year, he says he will be moved to safety and that versatility is one part of his game which has attracted recruiters. "A lot of schools said I'm going to either play wide receiver or safety in college," he said. Drummond's versatility also extends off the gridiron, as he is currently one of the leaders on a Hubbard basketball team that begins sectional play this week. While he is having success with the roundball, he says he only wants to play football in college. That appears to be a good move, as he is beginning to accumulate options for where he will play at the next level. "Right now I have offers from Indiana, Michigan State, Toledo and Akron," he reported, "and I'm hearing from Cincinnati, Bowling Green, Wisconsin, Pittsburgh, Northwestern, Kansas, Iowa and West Virginia. The only junior day I've been to was Ohio State, one of their coaches came up to the school, told us to stay in contact, gave us his e-mail address." The two Big Ten offers currently stand out to Drummond, especially the flexibility those schools have presented to him. "Indiana basically just told me that if I come there, the position is up to me. I could play either side of the ball. Michigan State said the same thing. They could see me playing at safety or outside linebacker or wide receiver." Currently, Drummond does not have any future visits set or a commitment date in mind. "Basketball takes up a lot of my time, but after the season, I'm going to start planning more visits."
