Defensive end has his sights on Army

Defensive end Randy Frost was excited when he pulled in his first college football scholarship, as the 6-foot-4, 230 pound prospect was recently offered by Southern Mississippi.

However, the St. Johns (Fl) Creekside High School recruit is hoping others will follow, which includes his interest in the three academies.

GoBlackKnights.com caught up with Frost as he completed his track competition for the day. "I just finished my track meet today," says Frost, who participates in the weighted events. "I was throwing the shot and discus … I PR'ed in disc at 122 feet and shot I did okay."

Not to discount the excitement of receiving his first offer, which Frost captured I last Wednesday, he remains focused on other opportunities surfacing down the road … especially Army, Air Force and Navy.

"I have heard from Air Force and I have gotten information requesting information on myself … it was a recruiting information sheet," he says. "For Army and Navy, I took the initiative there. Meaning I sent in my recruiting information."

Frost realizes that all three schools are competitive both on the field and in the class room and they aren't your typical Division I program.

"I have heard from neighbors and friends that have gone to West Point and always talking about it and how they enjoyed it so much," Frost mentions.

"I've looked at it and I like their opportunity, plus I want to play football wherever I head off to college. I like the disciplines that is there and it is a combination of great school and playing Division I football."

Frost is equally as competitive in the classroom, where he maintains an impressive academic resume. "My core GPA is 3.2 and my GPA - GPA is 3.7 states and I stick with mostly honor classes," he states. "I'm thinking about computer science engineering degree or aerospace degree.

And what about the idea of playing in the Northeast … home of the Army Black Knights? "I have always loved the idea of playing outside of Florida … living further away from home and get that experience," Frost says to the chilly possibility. "But the cold weather I am use to because my family has moved around a lot.

The strong side defensive end brings a combination of speed and strength with his game.

He indicated that he has yet to plan attending any specific camps yet, but will be attending the Nike Combine in Atlanta.

GoBlackKnights.com will continue to follow Frost's recruiting throughout.
