Love to Decide Soon

Linebacker Jermaine Love has narrowed his list to five and plans on announcing his decision in less than two weeks.

The 5-11, 225-pound prospect from North Garland High School in Texas plans on making that choice public on January 4 on ESPNU, during the broadcast of a Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. all-star game.

"I think I'm just about at the point where I'm ready to make my final choice," said Love. "It's been a long process, but it's been fun. It's about that time to end it and let coaches know whether I will or won't be coming."

The schools currently still in the running include Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas State, Texas A&M and TCU. What does he like about each school?

"I just visited Arkansas and had a great time," he said. "They have some great players right now, and I think they're going to keep getting better.

"Nebraska has always had a great program. I think they're getting back to the point now where they'll be talking about championships. They'll have a top team next year.

"I visited K-State a while ago and I really liked the area. There's more of a small-town feel an I like that. I could feel comfortable there.

"Texas A&M just seems like an awesome place. Their fans are crazy. It would be wild going out there a few Saturdays every year to play in that stadium.

"TCU? They just play great defense. That's their big emphasis and it shows. All the schools I'm looking at have great football programs, so I really can't go wrong. It's the little things that are going to do it for me."
