Simmons: Southeast Quick Hits

Get the latest on some prospects from around the southeast. Kendall Gant added a big in-state offer on Saturday and he talks about that some here...

  • "Florida State offered me Saturday night. I talked to Coach Napier on the phone and he is the coach that offered me. I have interest in them, but I have not visited them yet," Kendall Gant told Scout. Gant is a four-star safety out of Lake Gibson (Fla.).

  • FSU offered Kendall Sawyer, a 2014 Scout 300 cornerback out of East Lee County. Sawyer is a gamer and Scout expects plenty of other schools to offer the 6-foot CB this month.

  • LSU offered Shawn Burgess-Becker on Saturday. He is expected to be one of the top 2015 prospects in the state of Florida. The Monarch standout could be recruited as a safety or corner. Alabama and Miami are two others that have already offered Burgess-Becker.

  • University Christian (Fla.) offensive guard Josh Allen has picked up offers from Purdue and Rutgers recently. He has double-digit offers.

  • North Carolina State offered Atlanta linebacker Cameron Seward. He has been to Raleigh before for a game and he liked the stadium atmosphere and the fans.

  • Offer No. 30 came in for Tampa Catholic athlete T.J. Harrell and it was from Minnesota. Harrell does not know a lot about the Gophers at this time.

  • Alabama, Southern Miss, and Tennessee have all been by North Panola (Miss.) to check on 2015 tight end Willie Hibbler. Scout expects Hibbler to be one of the top Mississippi prospects in his class. Ole Miss has already offered Hibbler.

  • Baylor offered 2015 running back Nicholas Brossette on Saturday. Coach Buckels of Baylor offered this top Louisiana junior and Brossette was coach by Buckels' brother in middle school, so there is a connection there.

  • Freshman defensive end Cecil Stallings out of Chamblee (Ga.) added offers from Buffalo and Mississippi State last week. South Carolina has already offered.

  • St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) cornerback Al Harris has added offer from Georgia Tech, Bowling Green, and Tulane in the month of May.

  • Emanuel Beal is a speedster wide receiver out of Hillgrove (Ga.) and he picked up an offer from Western Kentucky on Friday. He is a prospect to keep an eye on this spring.

  • Arkansas offered top 2015 linebacker Sherrod Pittman out of First Coast (Fla.). He has over 10 offers.

  • 2015 linebacker Jeffery Holland picked up an offer from the Memphis Tigers late last week. He
