MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) - Top football prospect Ricky DeBerry transferred from St. Christopher's to Atlee High School last week and suited up with the Raider football team for the first time Monday.
DeBerry is one of the top recruits in the country from the class of 2015. He has offers from some of the top programs in the country including Alabama, Ohio State and, of course, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
DeBerry played only defense at St. Chris but will play on both sides of the ball with the Raiders. Atlee is moving him from the defensive line to linebacker and plans to use him in short-yardage situations on offense.
DeBerry is a few days behind at Raider practice and will suit up in full pads for the first time at practice on Friday.
