Presley Very Questionable For Saturday PDF Print

The saga continues for Appalachian State Univesity quarterback DeAndre Presley. Presley, who has been the hot topic of discussion concerning his playing status for Saturday's game at The Citadel, has been listed as "very, very questionable" by ASU coach Jerry Moore. Presley suffered a bruised shoulder in a loss against Wofford College on October 1. He had his arm in a sling and did not practice last week. He went to practice Monday and was in shorts and a t-shirt, and he did not participate in any drills.
According to Moore, the only way Presley might play on Saturday is if he cleared to practice, and he himself says he feels fine and is ready to go.
Until that happens, Jamal Jackson, who has been working out with the first-team for more than a week, looks like the starting quarterback Saturday against the Bulldogs. It would be his first collegiate start, and Moore says "he has a lot of confidence in Jackson, and that he really grew up a lot during spring drills." The 6-foot-3 sophomore from Atlanta, Ga., has played in three games this season, and he played in nine games last fall. Jackson also leads the Mountaineers with four rushing touchdowns.
The Mountaineers (3-2 overall; 1-1 Southern Conference)  are ranked seventh nationally; our coverage for Saturday's game from Charleston, SC.,  against The Citadel begins at 12 noon on AM 1450, WATA.
