Big Florida Athlete Talks Favorites

<b>Paul O'Hara</b> is one of the better backs available in the state of Florida for the class of 2005, but he only has a short list of schools still in the running for his signature. Who are they?

"I'm considering Florida, LSU, Maryland, Marshall, Central Florida and Florida State. I still don't have a favorite," Paul O'Hara said.

What has kept these 5 teams in contention?

Florida: "They play a lot of young players. I just want to see what happens with the coaches."
LSU: "They like to run the ball and have a balanced offense."
Maryland: "They had one of the best running backs in the ACC a year ago and they run the ball a lot."
Marshall: "They want me to play defense at Marshall as a safety or linebacker. I wouldn't mind doing that if it was the right situation."
UCF: "They have the big bruising backs and like to pound the ball."
Florida State: "I like Jeff Bowden a lot. He's a pretty good offensive coordinator."

What is O'Hara looking for in a school?

"I'm looking at depth chart, atmosphere and how they can help me academically."

O'Hara has yet to make any official visit plans.

"I haven't set any officials yet. I will take all 5 of them though."

O'Hara's team is off to a 7-2 start and he estimates that he has around 600yds and 10 touchdowns on the season.
