Robert Steeples talks about his first offer, campus visits, summer camps and more in this premium recruiting Q&A.

Q: Who are you hearing the most from right now?

Robert Steeples: The University of Missouri. They're my only offer right now. I'm also hearing a lot from Iowa, Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Ole Miss, they're all in the mix right now.

Q: Do you have any early favorites?

Steeples: I'm open to everything. I've been on some visits to start trying to find the best fit for me, but I'm not in a position to be picky right now. I'm just taking what's coming, and I'm liking it.

Q: Who have you been out to see so far?

Steeples: I've been up to Iowa, Wisconsin, and I plan on visiting Wake Forest and Ole Miss this month.

Q: What stood out on those visits?

Steeples: All the campuses were beautiful, Wisconsin and Iowa. I really liked that, but they're also great colleges, academic-wise. They're on top of their game there, and that's what I'm looking for in a college.

Q: What are you looking to study?

Steeples: It's a toss-up for me right now. I'm feeling a little pressure to try and figure out my major, but they just told me, 'You'll know when the time's right.'

Q: How are things looking grade-wise?

Steeples: Last semester I had a 4.08.

Q: On a 4.0 scale?

Steeples: Yes sir.

Q: Wow. Do you have SAT/ACT scheduled?

Steeples: I'm taking the June 9 ACT. I took my first one back in April, and got a 22. I'm shooting for about a 26.

Q: Any summer camps planned yet?

Steeples: The visits I take to Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Iowa and Ole Miss will be summer camps. I'm also looking to go up to some other summer camps once I start finding out what schools I really like. I'll be pretty busy this summer.
