One of the most heavily recruited linebackers in the country is Ricky DeBerry (6-2 240) of Richmond, VA.
He has 44 offers including ones from Clemson and USC. Some of the others are Florida, Ohio State, Southern Cal, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Iowa.
DeBerry visited Clemson for the Georgia game and got a good feel for the place.
"I like the game day atmosphere and I like the school in general" DeBerry said. "I like the coaching staff. Coach Swinney is a great guy, a players coach. It was pretty special for me."
Never miss a local story.
DeBerry is going to Tennessee this weekend and will go to Penn State for the Nebraska game. He hasn't visit USC but said, "I'm very interested in them as well."
He plans to visit more schools then narrow his list next spring. He also wants to get to Ohio State, Nebraska, and some southern and western schools. And he's also going to visit the two in-state schools.
DeBerry does not have favorites at this point. As an outside linebacker, he had 8 sacks last season.
