Mesa (Ariz.) junior college corner Damarious Randall is starting to make a recruiting splash. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound defensive back has seen a spike in his recruitment following his recent three-interception performance.
Florida Atlantic offered this week and now joins Western Michigan, Minnesota and South Alabama as his options. According to Randall, Texas A&M and Arizona State have also started showing interest.
"I'm going to graduate this Spring so I still have a lot of time," Randall said. "I have 3-to-play-3 left of eligibility remaining and colleges like that about me. I played baseball at Butler for a season before I tore my shoulder and I ended up here at Mesa. I'm originally from Florida so I can go anywhere to play, distance is no problem for me."
Randall said if ASU were to offer that might make things interesting.
"ASU would be a real big offer for me," he said. "That's something I'd definitely look into. I'm looking at depth charts for everyone so I can make an impact right away."
This season Randall leads the NJCAA with six interceptions through five games and was named the NJCAA Defensive Player of the Week after the team's shutout of Pima C.C. this past weekend. Teams have learned to start throwing away from his side, and Randall has now moved to safety.
