TYRONE, Ga. -- College football recruiting is speeding up every year, but it is still rare to see players offered in their sophomore year. More so, it's rare when the first offers to a sophomore come from major programs such as Georgia, Clemson and Auburn. Yet wide receiver Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) always has expected to be one of those select few. In fact, he was getting antsy.

"He was worried about that a little bit last season, wanting his first offer," Sandy Creek receivers coach Lee Heaberlin said. "I told him, 'You are just a sophomore; just wait.' Demarre has been one of the best his whole life, has wanted to work towards a D-I scholarship and has been hoping and expecting it to come. I think now that it is here, it is more of a release than anything for him."
