Rashad Mathis with Louisville offer

Rashad Mathis (Valdosta, Ga./Valdwood), a two-way star and very good athlete from Georgia, plays wide receiver and safety.

“Rashad also plays a little quarterback for us,” Valwood coach Brannon Tidwell said. “But I see him more as a safety in college. He’s real rangy with long arms. He’s big for a safety, has very good ball skills and he will come up and strike you.”

According to Tidwell, Mathis has a scholarship offer from Louisville while several other teams are showing interest in varying degrees.

“Louisville and Georgia Tech are recruiting him the hardest and Louisville has offered,” Tidwell said. “I know teams like Alabama, Tulane and Marshall are all recruiting him. Many teams want to see him this spring or get him to camp this summer.”

Mathis has attended junior days at both Alabama and Georgia.
