Jenkins (Savannah, GA) star athlete Chaz Sutton , a 6-4, 240-pound prospect who played running back and defensive end in his junior season, is a versatile prospect that projects at a variety of positions on the next level. He is being recruited by some college coaches as a fullback, others as a tight end, some as a linebacker and a few as a defensive end. Virginia Tech likes him for the latter, which is his favorite position. He also likes the Tech program.

Virginia Tech is one of the schools in Sutton’s current top five.

“My top five right now is Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Rutgers, West Virginia and Florida,” said Sutton, who has been offered by all five programs.

“Hopefully it is my final five, but I always wanted to go to Miami and if they come into the picture by the end of the summer then I might take that into consideration.”

According to other reports, Sutton had considered making a verbal commitment to Virginia Tech earlier in the spring. That didn’t happen, but Tech continues to be at the top of his list.

“They are still number one in my mind,” Sutton said of Virginia Tech. “I could go in there and be the guy coming off the edge. I’m an athletic guy with speed off the edge. I haven’t really been to the school so I can’t say they have a big edge, but right now they do have a slight edge.”

Sutton is hoping to visit Blacksburg for the first time in July.

“I’m planning on going to V-Tech next month,” Sutton said. “If I didn’t make it up this summer, I would take an official visit there. I talked to Coach Gray and we’re talking about a visit on July 21st.”

Of Sutton’s five favorites, the talented prospect has only visited two – Florida (for camp earlier this month) and South Carolina.

“With Florida, I liked it all around,” Sutton said. “The coaches are great guys. The thing about Florida is that the coaches and the players are all one big family. As a player, you want to be a part of that.

“I didn’t get to see too much at South Carolina, but you can tell they have come a long way. Coach Spurrier is doing great things in Columbia. All I did was walk around the stadium and see the weight room. I liked the stadium. I interacted with some of the players.”

In his junior season, Sutton averaged 11 yards per carry in a 3-running back system.
