2016 WR/S Mathews Adds LSU and Kentucky

Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida A&M High School class 2016 wide receiver/safety Armunz Mathews picked offers from LSU, Kentucky and East Carolina this week. The 5-foot-11 and 180-pound sophomore's first offer was from Alabama.

Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida A&M High School class of 2016 wide receiver/safety prospect Armunz Mathews continues to rack up an impressive list of scholarship offers this spring. The 5-foot-11 and 180-pound sophomore received his first offer from Alabama two weeks ago and new offers have started to roll in ever since. This week alone Mathews picked up offers from LSU, Kentucky and East Carolina.

"It felt good, with all the great defensive backs that have come out of LSU like Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu just to name a few. I mean it feels good. They like my size and that I am rangy. They say that I look like a ball hawk, they said they like that about me," said Mathews of the LSU offer.

The rising junior was just as impressed with his offers from Kentucky and East Carolina.

"It feels good. I have been in close contact with Coach Ansley (Kentucky cornerback coach Derrick Ansley) a lot, plus a friend of mine, Kendall Randolph (who signed with Kentucky this past February) is going there, so it feels pretty good," said Mathews of the Kentucky offer.

Mathews also takes pride in the fact that his East Carolina offer came from the Pirate's veteran defensive coordinator Rick Smith. The longtime college assistant has made coaching stops at Alabama, Baylor, South Florida and Kentucky among others in his career.

"Coach Smith is a nice guy. It feels good coming from him with all the talent he has seen before me, so it means a lot," explained Mathews of the Pirates offer.

Mathews also has offers from South Florida and Florida International. He has also been hearing from Iowa State and Michigan.
