Latta's prized recruit Stanley not slacking off in summer

Posted: Updated:

LATTA, SC (WBTW) -- Latta's Donell Stanley is a man in demand.

The rising senior is ranked as the top recruit in the state of South Carolina by Rivals.Com and number six in the country at his position--left tackle.

"Alot of people tell me to go here or there," Stanley said about his recruitment. "But they always tell me they will root for me wherever I decide."

He's already made one visit to Clemson and is planning on making stops at South Carolina, LSU and Alabama before the summer's over.  While schools, reporters and fans may be pulling him one way or another, Stanley always makes time to get better.

"I do alot of upper body and at the end of every workout I do foot drills," Stanley said.

Stanley has the size, he's 6-5, 320 pounds.  But this year, there's an increased focus on his footwork through ladder drills and is paying close attention to his balance and flexibility by adding yoga to his workout regiment. 

"I have good quiet feet," Stanley said. "I see myself being more flexible (after the workouts). I can see changes even though I'm not that good at it."

Stanley's focus now is to go to college football camps and make a decision on where to play college ball. He says his top four schools (in no order) are: Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina and Alabama.

Stanley plans on making his college decision at the Under-Armour All-American Game on national TV.
