Shields starting to draw interest
Zantavious Shields had a good day at the Atlanta MVP Camp late in March, then he stood out again at the Atlanta Nike Football Training Camp early in April. The 5-foot-9, 182 pound sophomore out of Bogart (Ga.) North Oconee is starting to hear from schools. "I have gotten letters from Northern Arizona, Texas A&M, and Stetson so far," Shields said. More schools will know about Shields later this spring. He is a physical player that ran the 40 yard dash in 4.59 seconds earlier this year and he has great versatility. "I have split time at safety, running back, and wide receiver in high school. I prefer safety though. I think they is my best position. I can tackle, I have good hands, and I feel most comfortable there. I just like playing defense too." He plans to stay busy this summer. Shields knows he will camp at Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Louisville. He may also get to South Carolina for a camp. The Peach State sophomore has an early top five and it is Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, and South Carolina.
