"Florida has still got the edge on all of those schools," said Summers, from Olive Branch High School.

"I've always liked the Florida Gators, their stadium and their great fan support. I was there for camp in June and I really like the atmosphere there too.

"LSU comes in right behind them. I like their offense and how they've got a couple of really good quarterbacks that can throw the ball. I really like how they throw the ball there a lot," he said.

"Oklahoma's loss this past weekend to TCU doesn't matter to me…they're still my No. 3 team. They've always been a great program and they produce a lot of wide receivers to the League every year.

Summers attended camps at Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Florida this past summer.

"I haven't set up any official visits and I'll probably wait until after the season to set them up. I've been getting calls lately from the coaches at the schools in my top five, as well as from Tennessee and Texas. They all want to see how I've been doing and when I'm going to be ready to set up those officials," he said.

Olive Branch is 2-0 right now. Summers has 4 catches for 145 yards and 3 TDs.
