Recruiting Tid-bits, 1/8

Things are really starting to heat up recruiting wise. Here are a few tid-bits of information regarding the latest in Southern Miss recruiting.

-It appears LB Nelson Easterling is moving closer and closer to committing to Southern Miss. The big man says tells me they are the clear leader but he doesn't want to announce until after he visits later in January.

-Ath Tere Calloway is keeping his decision very close to the vest. I haven't been able to get a feel about which way he is leaning. We have as good a shot as any of them, and I believe Coach Monken is going to make a trip up to see him very soon.

-I talked tonight with Jerron Johnson, WR, Jackson AL. He is down to two, Arkansas State and USM. He'll be visiting both this month. He didn't say if either has an inside track just yet. He wants to visit them both before deciding. He's a great prospect at WR. Think Playmaker!!!

-Ja'rius Moore of Terry (ath) talked with Coach Buckley tonight. Moore tells me that he was recruited heavily by the previous staff, and is now getting in with the new staff. He's also hearing from Mississippi State and is taking a visit up to Louisville this upcoming weekend. He is very high on Southern Miss, and said he'd love to be a part of the first recruiting class for Coach Monken. He's being recruited as a CB.

-Kameron Myers tonight updated with me that he has not heard from the staff yet.

-Brandon Acker, WR, Hattiesburg, said he's been offered by every JuCo in the state, but is still holding out hope that he'll hear from Southern Miss. He's expecting to talk with them before the week is out.

-Damian Williams, QB, Rummel is taking an official visit to Southern Miss on the 18th.

-Expect the Eagles to make a late push for Oxford's Xavier Pegeus.
