Sets Bama Visit

Scout.com four-star Meridian, (Miss.) running back has set three official visits. Cordera Eason talks about the three schools pushing for his signature.

"I will visit Ole Miss (1-13), Alabama (1-20) and Auburn (1-27)," said Cordera Eason. "I am thinking about taking visits to LSU and Mississippi State as well."

"I would be fine with only taking those three visits if I don't set up the other two. Ole Miss, Alabama and Auburn are my top three schools. They are all equal right now," Eason added.

Alabama: "Alabama is good overall team. If they can get the offense going, the defense will take care of the rest. Alabama's defense will always hold up their end. I like the coaching staff a lot. I feel like I could fit in very well with their system."

Auburn: "Everyone is trying to compare Derrick Davis and I to Cadillac [Carnell Williams] and Ronnie Brown. It would be a great opportunity to try to live up to their names. I like the coaching staff a lot. I went to a few of their camps, and they worked me really hard. That's how I like to be worked."

Ole Miss: "It's home to me. The situation at running back is great. They have a great offensive line. I feel like I could really fit into their system."

Eason has built strong relationships with all three coaching staffs and knows what he is seeking from his official visits.

"The main thing I will look at is the environment," Eason said. "I know the coaching staffs really well. I know what to expect from them. I want to see how nice all the people are and check-out the town."

When asked a time frame for a decision Eason replied, "I will take all my visits before deciding anything."

One coaching staff has made an in-home visit with the four-star running back as he shared, "The only coaching staff to visit my house was Ole Miss. It was almost the whole coaching staff that came to my house. Coach [Matt] Lubick, coach [George] DeLeone, coach [Ed] Orgeron, and coach [Tony] Hughes all came to my house. The visit went really good. They answered a lot of questions that I had no idea about. My mom liked them, but she knows the decision is up to me."

"Coach [Eddie] Gran and coach [Don] Dunn from Auburn have visited my high school. Coach Sparky Woods from Alabama visited as well. Those visits all went pretty good," Eason added.
