The 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect, who runs a 4.51 forty, has narrowed his list of impressive offers down to five favorites. "I have narrowed it down to Virginia Tech, Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina State and North Carolina," Sexton told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

"I'm not sure about my official visits. I will sit down over the next few weeks and schedule some visits. I'm not sure if I'll take officials to North Carolina or North Carolina State because I go up there all the time. I will probably go to the home opener for State."

What will the talented quarterback consider when determining where to attend college? "I will look at where feel most comfortable and at the QB situation that will be best for me. I also want to look at the feeling I get for coaching staff."

Sexton has developed a close relationship with Clemson Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach Mike O'Cain. "I have a very good relationship with Coach O'Cain," said the rising senior. "A couple of years ago our high school put in the Clemson offense and my coach got real close with Coach O'Cain. Of all the quarterback coaches I've met he is the best of all."

The prize recruit has traveled to Clemson a few times over the past few months to learn more about the Tigers. "I went up for the first day of spring practice last year. I also went down for the one day camp."

Scotland High School is looking better as the season approaches. "We look better than we did this summer. I was worried earlier this summer, but we are really starting to come together. I'm excited about the season."

Sexton will take some visits and hopes to have a decision over the next few months. "I wish I could make it now. I just can't break it down to 1 school yet. When the time is right I'll do it. I would like to get it done by early November."

Distance will be a consideration but not a deciding factor for Sexton. "If I could play close to home I'd rather do that, anybody would. It doesn't really matter. If I feel like I need to go out of state to go to the right school I will."
