Cornelius Carradine High School Highlights
By Steve Patterson
Playing in the NJCAA championship game, the #1 ranked El Dorado Butler County CC lost to Navarro College 13-12. But at least 9 different Junior College players on the field will have scholarships next year with division 1 NCAA programs and possibly up to 25. Cornellius Carradine will be one of those players. With strong consideration for Alabama, Florida State and Georgia, the strong side defensive end appears to like the SEC over other conferences.
In the Junior College title game Carradine had 11 tackles and showed a strong motor. He has the ability to get by the offensive tackle and chase down running backs from behind. Could be an elite pass rusher at the next level but needs more than speed. He needs to improve his strength training to be able to push defenders off their blocks.
