Given what he did on the football field last season and then on the track this spring, Levante Bellamy is well on his way to being firmly on the recruiting radar.
The 5'9, 165-pound back was a big playmaker in the fall and followed that up by running 10.87 in the 100 and 22.4 in the 200. As a result, he is already hearing from some colleges.
"I'm getting mail from Florida State, Indiana, Purdue and Nebraska. I went to a camp at Purdue and I have one at Cincinnati next Friday."
Bellamy was able to turn heads in West Lafayette, once again with his speed and versatility.
"Purdue said they were pretty interested. I ran a 4.46 forty. I ran a 4.16 shuttle. I did pretty good in individual drills, footwork drills, and they said I did extremely well 1-1s against linebackers and they said I had good vision."
Last season was Bellamy's first full year on varsity after being pulled up for the playoffs the year before.
"It was tough at first," he admitted. "I wasn't used to being hit as hard, but once you get used to it, you outrun the competition and just try your best."
As he moves through the process, Bellamy hopes to hear from Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Baylor and Texas A&M.
Whoever lands him, he believes, is getting the complete package.
"I describe myself like an all-purpose back, scatback, athlete that can play any position on the field. Schools really like my speed, burst, I can juke and all that, but if you come head on, I won't dodge away. I'll try to truck you and break you off. If I could compare myself to any player, I'm probably like a DeAnthony Thomas."
