South Carolina Athlete high on the Army Black Knights
Don't let his 5-foot-9 height fool you, because there is little doubt that Athlete Rondreas Truesdale out of Fort Mill (SC) Indian Land High School can bring.
As Barry Sanders once said when his height was brought into question, the NFL great was quick to respond by saying, "I don't run vertically."
Currently, Truesdale is holding one offer and that is from Army, who recently reached out to the speedy senior.
"I got an email from them today where Coach Coaxum (Tony) told me they beat Northwestern, says Truesdale who is being recruited by the Black Knights as a slotback, although he is currently playing quarterback at Indian Land.
Truesdale did admit that he doesn't have a preference what role he plays on offense, as long as he has the ball in his hands to make things happen.
Just look at his stats and you can understand why the 4-0 Indian Land squad wants see Truesdale get as many touches as possible. In their second game of the season, he ran for 347 yards on 23 attempts and not to mention leading the defense with 9 tackles.
On the season, Truesdale has accumulated 15 touchdowns and 874 yards rushing on 61 carries.
The South Carolina native was quick to mention that he is looking forward to taking a visit to West Point. "Definitely looking to visit Army," says Truesdale, who has two dates circled on his calendar and has made it clear that he is high on the Black Knights. "I'm going to catch one of the their last two home games. Either October 1st or the one after that."
"My interest is very high. Man, it's West Point and Army football ... it doesn't get better than that. I could see myself committing to Army. It's a prestigious place and when you graduate from West Point you are an officer and honestly the only person who can mess that up for you is you."
In addition to his gridiron accolades, Truesdale also has the designation as the states' Class 2A 110M Champion in the high hurdles.
