If you're looking for the most impressive ninth-grader in the country so far this season, look no further than Liberty County (Hinesville, Ga.) freshman defensive back Richard Lecounte.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Lecounte was named Liberty County's Player of the Game last week after recording six tackles, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.

On the season, he has accumulated 30 tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles in just three games, putting him on pace for some astronomical numbers.

According to 247Sports, he already has offers from Florida and Ohio State.

As it stands today, Lecounte is a frontrunner for MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year honors.
