Visits Reshuffled

Wide receiver Jeremy Chappelle took the first of four planned official visit this past weekend when he tripped to College Station to see what Texas A&M had to offer. Chappelle remains on the open market and has a trio of official excursions slated for the coming weeks.

"Texas A&M was good," said Chappelle. "I had a good time there and I got along good with all of the players.

"That was probably the best thing about the trip, just being with the players.

"It was a good atmosphere and I enjoyed getting to see everything."

Chappelle left Aggieland with a clear picture of his possibilities for the future in College Station.

"I don't have an offer from them yet," said Chappelle. "They said that I should know something about an offer from them in the next few days.

"They are waiting to hear about somebody else that might be committing, so they will make a decision about an offer after that."

The talented wideout reports that he has no plans to sit by the phone. Chappelle will be on the road the next three weekends in an effort to find the right fit.

"I am going to Louisiana Tech this weekend, then I am going to Mississippi State (12/7) and then Houston (12/14)," said Chappelle. "I am keeping things open for that last visit because you never know what is going to happen.

"I was planning to visit West Virginia, but I really don't want to go that far from home.

"I really just want to keep it down south."

The Tyler campus has been buzzing all week as college recruiters have spent a lot of time conducting in person visits with college bound prospects.

Chappelle has met with four different coaches over the course of the past few days.

"I got to meet Coach (Sonny) Dykes and Coach (Rob) Likens from Louisiana Tech," said the talented wide out. "I am looking forward to seeing them again this weekend.

"Coach (Les) Koenning from Mississippi State came yesterday. I liked him a lot. I got a real good vibe from him.

"Houston and Southern Miss have both come too, so I have talked with a lot of coaches."

The process will continue for a few more weeks and Chappelle will eventually sit down and put pen to paper finalizing his decision.

As things stand now, Chappelle is trying to keep an open mind about his suitors.

"I feel like I have some good options," said Chappelle. "I am going to take these visits and then see how things go.

"I am happy with all of the offers I have and I may end up with an offer from Texas A&M too, so that would be never better."
