Default Re: Devante Covington Thread (2013 Commitment)

Thank God I can finally post in here! Is the staff looking at him to be a true DE or maybe a hybrid DE/LB type? I mean I know he's still in high school and his body can change a lot, but I was just asking because of his size.

Quote:
DE Devante Covington (6-3 220) of Rockingham, NC became USC's 8th commitment for the 2013 class Monday night when he made his pledge to recruiter Shawn Elliott. Elliott visited with Covington last week. Covington also visited USC earlier in the spring. He also had offers from Clemson, Tennessee, East Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest. "South Carolina seems on the rise in the SEC and I want to be a part of it," Covington said. "I want to be a pass rusher and I give a lot of effort just like they do. Everybody on the team has a great attitude. It's a great place to be around the players. And the facilities are really good." Last season Covington had 34 tackles and 8 sacks. The Gamecocks are also recruiting his teammate OL Tyrone Crowder and the two have talked about going to the same school. "We are close, and we both want to be close to home, but I don't know what he wants to do," Covington said.

After watching the Gamecocks commit, it's easy to see why the South Carolina staff apparently was so happy to land him. He's tall, lean, has a good reach and did a nice job getting off the ball quickly. Covington is a solid rush end, and he knows how to utilize his combination of speed and length to keep opposing tackles from engaging him too effectively.

Devante Covington's big frame, quickness and athleticism will serve him well at the next level but he needs to get stronger and study the game more. He's definitely one to watch for as a junior or senior
Was also listed as a big disappointment too:

Devante Covington has a big frame and a lot of potential but was not able to make many plays.

Quote:
USC signed DE Devante Covington (6-3 230) in 2013 but he failed to make the grades to qualify and enrolled at Georgia Military JC. Last season he totaled 17 tackles with 1 sack. Covington has another season to spend at Georgia Military and will graduate next May. After that, according to his coach, he appears headed to USC.
“He’s working hard and gaining weight,” coach Bert Williams said. “His grades are doing pretty good and he’s making the progress he needs. South Carolina is still in touch, they are still on board. Several other schools are exhibiting interest but he’s not interested. There’s a good likelihood he will resign barring any change.”
Covington is from Rockingham, NC and was a teammate of Clemson offensive lineman Tyrone Crowder. He played in the Shrine Bowl in 2013. He actually committed to USC in April of 2012. He also had offers from Clemson, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, NC State and East Carolina.
Assuming everything progresses as planned, Covington would have three years to play two at USC

Hard to believe it's been nearly 2 years since he committed (and still another year to go before he can get to USC). Hope he keeps doing good work at GMC.
