This will be the year that determines what level of prospect Westminster’s Malcolm Chester will be.
A three-year starter on defense, Chester, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound rising senior, figures to be a go-to guy on offense this year for the Wildcats, giving scouts a chance to assess his skills.
“He’d love to play Division I, but we’ll have to see how that goes,” Westminster coach Gerry Romberg told the AJC. “He’s a very intelligent young man — his father played at Duke — and education is going to be a very important consideration. They’re going to look for the best split of football and academics.”
He has been to a one-day camp at Georgia Tech. Romberg said that Central Michigan is “very interested” and is expected to attend the Football University Top Gun camp north of Orlando at the end of the month, a training experience which touts itself as being for the elite players.
“I don’t know if he’s an SEC/ACC-type kid, but he can definitely play at some level,” Romberg said.
