"The facilities are really nice and they have some really professional coaches," Medforth said. "They have a good brand of football down there. Of all the places that have been recruiting me, Troy clicked with me the best."
Medforth, 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, had some recruiting interest from South Florida and also had offers from Jacksonville State and Appalachian State. He projects as an interior offensive lineman at the college level and plays right guard for Sylacauga High School.
Medforth took part in one of Troy's two camps a couple of weeks ago. Troy coaches were aware of him before then, though.
"They came and saw me in the weight room and coach (John) Schlarman liked what he saw," Medforth said. "They talked to my coaches and had watched my tape. This was before school had gotten out."
Medforth said he wants to major in criminology. Here are some highlights on YouTube.
