Tigers Lead For Speedy Football Prospect

This speedy in-state receiver talks about his teams season opener and his current leader.

The speedy, 6-3 receiver also notes that he has plans to check out both the Tigers and the Tide this season. "I am going to see Auburn and LSU," said Billings, who scheduled his first unofficial game visit to Tuscaloosa this past weekend to see Alabama play Utah State.

Pelham opened its season two Fridays ago with a 38-32 win over Paul Bryant High, but Billings notes the Pelham air attack wasn't a focal point of the game plan despite the high scoring game.

"We didn't really pass a lot," Billings explained. "All we did was run and I didn't really get to do that much. I got two or three catches and one touchdown."

The lanky receiver adds that he is planning on taking all of his official visits before he makes a decision and that he is not really sure exactly what he is looking for in a college of choice at the moment.
