Josh Hawkins, from Greenville High School, has caught the attention of several elite programs. During spring evaluation, Hawkins received three big time offers.
"I currently have offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, and Louisville. I feel like I may be close to receiving a few more," said Josh Hawkins.
Hawkins received his offers all during the spring evaluation period. Alabama was the first to offer. He said, "Alabama offered me during the first week when coaches were able to come visit. Coach Connelly came by my high school, and he was the one who extended the offer. I liked it, and I was happy to have one from Alabama."
The offer from the Sooners took Hawkins by surprise. "Oklahoma sent me the offer in the mail about two weeks ago," he said. "I was left speechless. They are one of my top schools."
The offer from Louisville was expected by the mammoth lineman. "I pretty much figured Louisville would offer me. They have been recruiting me since the beginning of my junior year. I am really looking forward to camping there this summer," said Hawkins.
Heading into the summer, Hawkins has an early top five list. Auburn, Louisville, Oklahoma, LSU, and Clemson are early favorites, and one school is ahead of the pack.
"Out of those five schools, I would have to say Louisville is my overall favorite," he said. "I really like the talent they have on their team. It is a school that plays a lot better than most people would think."
Hawkins saw plenty of college coaches visit during the spring. "We had coaches from Alabama, UAB, Southern Miss, LSU, Auburn, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Central Florida, and Purdue. I received phone calls from Oklahoma, LSU, Auburn and a couple of more," Hawkins said.
