ATH Cordrea Tankersley (6-1 175) of Silver Bluff has offers from Clemson and USC at this point and is drawing interest from Nebraska, NC State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
He was at Clemson for the spring game and has also visited USC. He does not have a favorite according to his coach Al Lown.
Tankersley is the nephew of former Silver Bluff star and NFL veteran Dwayne Bates. And Lown says he runs like another Silver Bluff produce who played in the NFL, receiver Troy Williamson. "He has tremendous speed," Lown said. "He's tough and is going to get bigger." Tankersley plays quarterback, defensive back and receiver.
Last season he had 1664 yards rushing with 12 touchdowns and passed for 900 yards and 3 scores. He's being recruited for defensive back and slot back.
