Last week, Central running back A’montae Spivey traveled to Mobile for Rivals’ 3 Stripe Camp. The camp was not only an opportunity for the Red Devil to work on his game, it was a chance to show off his skills.
Spivey performed well at the camp, taking home MVP honors among running backs. It’s another accomplishment for Spivey, the 6-foot, 185-pound rising senior who is considered a three-star running back, according 247Sports’ Composite.
“It was a great experience to be coached by past NFL players and being around some top-notch football players in the Southeast,” Spivey said of the camp experience. “It doesn’t get much better than that.”
Spivey’s strong showing at the camp looks to be just one part of a busy spring. He’s received camp invites from LSU and Army, and he’s already begun hearing from interested schools such as Army, Middle Tennessee State, Troy and Arkansas.
Never miss a local story.
Spivey received an offer Friday from Arkansas Friday, adding to previous FBS offers from Cincinnati and South Alabama.
Spivey also has a number of visits lined up in the coming days. He visited Auburn on Thursday, is going to Tennessee Saturday and will visit Middle Tennessee on April 7.
“It’s been fun so far, especially lately since it has picked up,” Spivey said of the recruiting process. “(I’m looking at) how many times they run the football but also for a family atmosphere.”
Spivey was part of a loaded backfield for the Red Devils in 2017 and shared carries with a number of teammates, including older brother Jamaar. Despite this, the younger Spivey led the team with 944 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns.
As far as the offseason goes, Spivey said he’s concentrating on improving his moves. He wants to develop into more of an all-around running back, and he said he’s eager to prepare his body to play collegiately.
Spivey’s recruitment likely will pick up in the coming weeks and months. As far as the college coaches are concerned, Spivey offered a message to those who may soon come calling.
“I’m a guy that loves to compete and hates losing,” Spivey said. “You will be getting 110 percent out of me every play and every rep.”
