He had such a good freshman season, Fort Scott LB LaVonte David (6-2, 215) was named a JC Gridwire…
Five offers already on the table for David
"I had a lot of offers, but I just didn't get qualified," David told JCFootball.com. "Fort Scott has a great program it was a place I could get away from everything except football and school, so that's why I headed here."
David had an outstanding freshman season in 2008, posting 93 tackles, 13 tackles-for-loss, four sacks, one interception and four fumble recoveries. He led the Jayhawk conference in tackles while earning All-Conference honors.
"I read and react to plays fast," David said. "I play the WIL (weakside) spot, so I can just flow and run and be aggressive. I have good speed (4.53) so that lets me make plays all over the field."
Recruiting has also gone well for the Florida-native.
"I have offers from Kansas, Kansas State, North Texas, FIU and Tulsa," David said. "A lot of other schools seem to like me though and they could be close to offering me. LSU, Utah, TCU, Florida State, South Florida and Clemson are the main ones looking at me.
"I want to take my visits and see the schools interested in me before I make my decision. I'll start setting those up soon."
David will be finished with his two-year degree in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
We'll have more from him in the near future as the recruiting process really picks up in September.
