You’ve got to give Christian LeMay’s dad, Stacey, credit for style; when the written offers for his son began pouring in, he announced that fact by lining up the envelopes and taking a picture of the batch.
With LeMay, a junior, on target toward becoming one of the most sought-after recruits in the nation next year, the picture was predictably impressive.
Fanned out on a table were thick envelopes, with the schools that sent them easy to read.
Starting with the first, they included Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Tennessee, East Carolina and Maryland.
LeMay, though, is just getting started. He had 12 verbal offers before teams could start putting them in writing for juniors Sept. 1. Expect him to have three dozen by this time next year.
