The two best words that describes David Mahoney, the Volunteer’s official visitor this weekend from Los Angeles Pierce College is size and speed.
This is according to Mahoney’s head football coach Ephraim Martinez.
“Holy smokes can this young man run,” Coach Martinez told InsideTennessee.com Tuesday evening. “David ran an 11.4 in the 100 meters, he is currently weighing at least 300 pounds.”
Mahoney confirmed with I.T. (InsideTennessee) Wednesday that he is indeed coming to Knoxville this weekend.
“I watched Tennessee on television against Florida, I thought they dominated the Gators,” Mahoney said. “They have a legendary coaching staff. To get the chance to play for Monte Kiffin and Ed Orgeron doesn’t happen everyday.”
According to Coach Martinez, Mahoney is a great athlete that has unique talents.
“He has freakish talents,” Martinez explained. “From what David is saying Tennessee has a great shot at landing him. David’s motor is always running, he has run down several teams fastest players, running backs, wide receivers, it doesn’t matter.”
According to Mahoney, he will leave arrive in Knoxville on Thursday night. He is looking forward to his trip.
“I have heard a lot of great things about their program,” Mahoney said. “I can’t wait to see everything. To get to know their coaches a lot better.”
Mahoney currently has offers from Tennessee, Texas Tech and Kansas State.
According to Mahoney, he is on schedule to graduate in December.
“Right now my grades are going great,” Mahoney said. “I should graduate in December.”
The standout defender plans on taking an official visit to Texas Tech on November 21 and possibly a trip to Kansas State.
