Berry Getting Better C/O 2016 QB

It seems like each and every year, athletes are getting noticed earlier and earlier in the recruiting process. Athletes are working harder to get the most out of their ability to make sure that college coaches notice them very early in their high school careers. While not everyone is going to get offered extremely early, there are athletes out there that are good enough to get offered as freshmen and sophomores.

One of those athletes to keep an eye on early in the recruiting process is St. Francis High School (IL) 2016 quarterback Justin Berry. The talented dual threat athlete has started to receive attention already this early in his recruiting process. With a relentless work ethic and the drive to succeed, Berry has all the tools to be one of the top athletes in the nation for the class of 2014.

Berry is one of those athletes that feels like he can always be better. He works hard every day to be the best he can be. He feels like that hard work will pay off for himself, as well as his team.

“We are going to a great team,” said Berry. “We have one of the best running backs in the country in James Butler. He missed last season because he transferred but he is expected to have a huge season and with a 6 foot 7 receiver and plenty of speed in the slot, are expected to have a great team. I think that we have a chance to compete for a state championship.

“I have been involved in lots of 7-on-7 and working out and lifting and doing things to get ready for next season. I have visited Purdue and Illinois this spring and I plan to visit Arizona State at the end of the month. With 7-on-7 it is all about making the right read against many different coverages which will play a big part in my improvement and my success during the season. Over spring break and during the summer, I will be working with my quarterback coach Donovan Dooley who coaches some of the other top QB’s in the country.”

One of the schools that Berry has always liked is the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He still has them high on his list and hopes to hear more from them in the coming weeks.

“I’m still very interested but I haven’t been able to keep the same relationship since Coach Brewster left. The coaches are still interested in me but I haven’t heard anything from them since Brewster left. My interest level for the school though hasn’t changed.  I like them a lot.”
