Alabama RB Holds Four

Alabama RB Holds Four

Shawn Southward, from Florence, Ala., rushed for more than 1,700 yards during his junior season which was good enough to earn ASWA honorable mention 6A running back for 2007. Southward reports four scholarship offers and is expecting others to follow soon.

Shawn Southward has been to three camps this summer, and he tells about each one.

Tennessee: "I went to Tennessee Wednesday, and it went well. I talked to Coach Chavis, and they liked me. They wanted me to come up there. I left them a highlight film, and I am supposed to call them Thursday."

Auburn: "Everything went well at Auburn Saturday. The camp was basically just like Tennessee's camp. I didn't participate in the camp, but I ran the 40 while I was there. I did some drills with the running backs."

"I talked to Coach Dunn and Coach Grant while I was there, and they told me they really liked the way I ran the ball. I left a day early, so I didn't get to talk to them a lot. I am supposed to call them back next week to talk to them after they watch my film."

Southern Miss: "I also went to Southern Miss a couple of weeks ago, and it went well. The coaches told me they really liked the way I ran the ball, and they said they would be in touch with me soon."

Southward is still receiving interest from Florida, Florida State and Georgia. He includes them in his top five schools. He talks about attending camps at each school or taking unofficial visits.

"I was supposed to go to Florida's camp last week, but I didn't get to go. I am trying to get over to Georgia's camp, and I would like to go to FSU," Southward said.

"I have a top five; it is Tennessee, Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Florida State."

Southward holds offers from Georgia Southern, Arkansas State, Troy and UNA.
