I spoke with Middle Tennessee, Wake Forest, Purdue, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Columbia, UGA, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech when they all came to see me during spring practice, too."

Rico has been constantly working out most everyday after finishing spring practice. He hopes and expects to gain more offers, especially after attending camps where he can prove himself against other top recruits.

"I plan on attending senior camps at Georgia Tech, Middle Tennessee, South Carolina, Duke, and probably Louisville."

In the past, Rico has been quoted as favoring Georgia Tech and wanting to stay close to home. He says he still favors Tech along with Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, South Carolina, and Duke. He remains wide open to anybody though. Rico would be willing to play for a school in any division or conference, however would really love to play in the ACC or SEC. The style of the offense combined with how he gets along with the coaching staff will help him determine where he will play football.
