Artemus McCorkle aka Aj is a 5’11 185 junior who is a two-year starter at defensive back for Salem High School (Conyers, Ga). He made a name for his self his sophomore year with 5 interceptions and being a play maker. His Junior year, Teams knew not to throw to his side. Even though he only grabbed one interception, he still found a way to make plays. He is a physical play maker who is not afraid to come up and lay the boom. McCorkle also has smooth man to man technique and his zone coverage is like second nature to him. Aj is a very coachable player and that is why he was the field general this past season; at times he was even calling the coverages for the entire secondary.
I had the chance to talk to Mr. McCorkle about his recruitment and this upcoming off-season. Though Artemus is a big time play maker and a leader on his team, he would like to improve his confidence this off-season. To do that he will continue to perfect his craft and bust his tail this spring.
As I said earlier Aj is a very physical football player and He would agree with that: “I would say the biggest thing that makes me stand out as an athlete would be my physically”. Aj has a solid frame and he isn’t afraid to use it. As you can see on film he comes up like a freight train and lays the BOOM!
His Physically has brought him offers from Louisville, Florida Atlantic, and his latest offer from Syracuse. Here is what Artemus had to say about his latest offer: ” Coach Reynolds seemed very cool and seemed as if he was highly recruiting me and really want Syracuse to be one of my top schools” It is still early in the recruiting process for the 2019 Class and Artemus McCrokle will be one to keep your eyes on.
