Will be visiting Ohio State for FNL and possibly North Carolina before making his final decision on Sept. 9th. He has visited Alabama, Ole Miss and UCLA in the past two months.

His top schools are Ole Miss, Alabama, Tennessee, Memphis, Ohio State, North Carolina and UCLA. He mentioned that Ohio State has always been his dream school and he possibly could end up staying overnight after FNL with Jalin Marshall who he has built a close relationship with.

A guy who played against him last year chimed in and had this to say:

"He has always for some reason liked Ohio State. I thought he was going to Tennessee for a while but this summer has changed his opinion and Tennesee seems to be trending down. Everyone at MUS is affiliated with Ole Miss in some fashion and he told me there's a lot of pressure from the boosters and his coaching staff to go to Ole Miss. If he had a top 2 it would most likely be Ohio State and Ole Miss but Alabama is trending up and could be a dark horse. He doesn't tell me everything but I have a good feeling about the validity of what he's been telling me."

I still think tenn could be the choice. From what I gather, his absolute best friend was in tenn's last recruiting class. 

We'll see I guess.

Crystal Ball'd to Tenn still, but would be awesome to add another OL to the class. Hopefully he enjoys Friday Night Lights camp in 2 weeks.

Tennessee thinks he's pretty much a lock for them, but then again, they think every kid is pretty much a lock for them...

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

TN is TN. Unless Peyton Manning is awarded another year of eligibility they will be battling KY for SEC low-tier bragging rights. They are the Indiana of the SEC, except Indiana can put points on the board.

He will go where it's best for him and where he fits in the best, imho.

Great news if true. Have always liked Richmond a lot. He and Burrell would round out another fantastic OL class.

My wife is from NE Mississippi, MUS and it's alumni are full of Ole Miss alums.

If anything, we should be worried of a bag man

While I realize there is no such thing as TOO MANY OL...especially elite OL...the way things look for 16' OL haul I wouldn't lose any sleep on missing with anyone this year. I wouldn't turn him away either but we look to be solid for a long time. Then again - now that I've just re-read my crazy chit...I'm gunna try to down/vote this myself lmao....I just asked myself if I had any clue wtf I am talkin about / I answered that obviously I do but why say the Same chit as every one else...uhhh huh...okayyy then

Lot of pressure from the boosters and coaching staff to attend ole miss? How exactly do boosters pressure a kid without jeopardizing his eligibility?

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

They're Ole Miss, and they're in the SEC.

Thanks for the softball.

Just a guess, but I think he is talking about the boosters of the HS, not Ole Miss.
