  • Christmas enjoyed his time at Mississippi State during his camping time there.

    "I enjoyed myself," said Christmas. "I liked the coaching staff and how they made us work hard and showed us how to be pushed."

    He also learned a few moves that will help him during his high school career.

    "I learned some new passing moves with the rip and different ways to use it to make it work," said Christmas.

    His performance at the camp earned him his latest offer.

    "They told me that I have an offer and that I did great in the camp," said Christmas, who now has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Miami (FL), Mississippi State, North Carolina, South Carolina and South Florida.

    With two camps out of the way this summer, Christmas has other camps and visits planned the next few days.

    "I went to Auburn, then Mississippi State, and I'm going to FSU," said Christmas. "I'm also going to tour Alabama and Samford."

    As you would expect with the amount of offers that he has, he is being recruited by schools throughout the south.

    "The Florida schools and southeastern schools are showing interest in me," said Christmas.
