The impressive offer list for Timmons includes Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Clemson, South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky. "My top 5 are Florida, Miami, Michigan, Georgia and Tennessee," stated Timmons.

Timmons camped at Miami this summer and was hoping to get an offer from the Hurricanes. "I haven't heard much from them lately. I have gotten a couple of letters. They said they would keep their eye on me."

"I'm thinking about going ahead and committing during the season. I might go ahead and commit in September. The leader right now would probably be Florida. Coach Strong is recruiting me for Florida."

How does his mother feel about him leaving the state? "She said don't go too far away. She still wants to see me play."

The Wilson High star is busy preparing for his first game on August 29th. "We just started practice about a week ago. We had our first scrimmage the other day."
