Update: Tigers Still Looking at Kyles

Nick Kyles is arguably the top wide receiver in the state of Georgia and he has 5 southern schools vying a tight recruiting war for his signature. Is he ready to name a favorite?

"I like Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Auburn and Florida. I'm kind of open but I was leaning to Georgia last week. Now I'm wide open though," Nick Kyles said.

Why does he list each of those programs?

ALA: "I like Alabama because their coaches show a lot of interest and they run a pro offense and need receivers. They have a good quarterback."

UGA: "It's close to home and they have a good atmosphere. All my family can come see me and I like Coach Richt and Coach Eason a lot."

CU: "I like Clemson because my cousin goes there and they treat him good. He tells me they need receivers and they throw the ball a lot. Coach Bowden talked to me and said the offense revolves around the receiver."

AU: "I like Auburn because they are going to win the national championship and they are recruiting me and my brother."

UF: "I like Florida because they throw the ball and Chris Leak is a real good quarterback. They have some receivers but they are kind of young so I think I can play."

The Dawgs and Tigers have each made a stop in the central Georgia town to check up on Kyles in the last week.

"Clemson came to see me at school today and went and talked to my dad at home. Coach Martinez from Georgia came to my school about a week ago and talked to my coach and me."

"I've got an official visit with Alabama next Friday, Georgia on January 21st, the 14th to Clemson and the 7th to Auburn. I probably won't take my 5th visit."

How did his final year of high school ball go?

"I had 62 catches, 1050yds and 11 touchdowns. I'm playing basketball right now and I've probably been averaging about 15 points a game."
