"This is probably the funnest practice I've had in my life. The best in South Carolina going head-to-head to play," Jamal Medlin said. "It lets you know where you are as a player, talent-wise, but I've played most of these guys at one point."
"They don't push me around, but it is fun. They have their wins and I have my wins."
Medlin came close to not playing in this game. After coming off a junior year, few thought that Medlin could play at such a high level. It took one man to push Medlin to be the best player on the field every day.
"My junior year, I would say I was an average player, but I received an inspirational speech from my grandfather who passed following the season," Medlin said. "He told me I can be as great as I want to be, and I took it to heart."
With that combination of grit, talent, and determination, Medlin now holds offers from NC State and Maryland and what should amount to a large number of offers after the game ends on Saturday.
"I have an official visit to Maryland the 6th and NC State on the 13th."
