Judie excited at chance to play big-time football

Fort Scott (KS) Community College cornerback Coryell Judie has been something of a mystery man to fans of Texas A&M football during the past couple of years. He's become somewhat of a legend due to his performance on the field - he intercepted six passes as a freshman and then earned junior college All America honors as a sophomore - and the unqualified praise given to him by Fort Scott head coach Jeffrey Sims and other members of his staff.

He's also been something of a mystery man, which does nothing but add to the legend. Hard core fans of a program often make it out to high school game to check out prospects that will be signing with them and A&M fans are no exception in that regard. However, unlike a lot of Texas high school prospects, no one in Texas has seen him play due to the fact that he's played his last two years of ball - the best football of his career - out of state and out of sight. In addition, he has never conducted an interview.

Nonetheless, in approximately three months, Judie ("Cory" to his friends and relatives) should finally be hitting the football field for A&M.
