RB, Randall picks up his first offer

With one recruiting class (2010) about to enter the historic campus called West Point, the Army coaching staff continues to work diligently to mold together the class of 2011.

Dwayne Randall out of Linganore High School in Fredrick (Md.) pulled down his first offer when the Black Knights of Army reached out to him on Memorial Day. "Coach Brock called me on the phone and offered me," shares the 6-foot-1, 204 pound running back.

"And about two weeks later I received my offer letter in the mail.

So with an offer from Army, what are Randall's plans on taking a visit to Army? "I have not been able to make it up this summer, because of my summer football camp schedule," shares Randall, who has camped at West Virginia, North Carolina, UConn and according to the Maryland native, he remains on each school's recruiting list.

"Coach Brock told me what they want me to do is … not too worried about anything right now. Focus on my season and after the season is over, that's when they want me to come up for my official visit … they want me to start and finish my season good.

West Point is a great school, the connections there are amazing … it's West Point.

West Point is a great school, the connections there are amazing … it's West Point."

When it comes to the academies, Randall is also receiving some attention from Navy. "I've heard from their coach and I'm thinking about attending their camp," confirms Randall, who defines himself as a all-purpose running back.

"I'm a complex running back. In the past I was just run fast and through the hole, but in my junior year I didn't want to be simply a scatback, but runner with some power … a solid running back. So I spent time lifting getting bigger and stronger. I worked on my blocking, which most backs don't like to do. I have to just continue to better myself offensively."

In addition to football, Randall is competitive in the 110M hurdles and has an idea of the type of school environment that fits his temperament.

"The first thing that matters to me is the school's spirit. I'm coming from Linganore and the spirit there is amazing. Some people don't have kids at Linganore and they come to our games …. The support is very comforting and when we travel, we always have more fans than the home team.

Randall plans to continue his summer workout activities and make it to a few more camps before preparing for his senior year.
