East High in Memphis is home to an offensive line prospect by the name of Bobby Billingsley. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound junior is hearing from a few SEC programs and holds an offer from a Conference USA program.

Bobby Billingsley was one of the top linemen in Memphis this season. And because of his play this season and the year before, he had the attention of quite a few schools.

"The school that I talk to the most is Arkansas State and Ole Miss. I've been talking with Kentucky and Vanderbilt too," he said.

Billingsley is kind of a do it all player for his team and his abilities have caught the eyes of the programs above.

"I like to play fast and I like to play physical at the same time. I like to use my footwork as an advantage. Right now I'm trying to get better at snapping the ball. I'm trying to be better at snapping and then blocking. I play center, guard and tackle," he said.

His play has been good enough to earn him a verbal offer from one school already at this point.

"Right now I have an offer from Memphis, but that's about it. Memphis offered last year. I have to see what they do with the new head coach," he said.

Billingsley has also been on a few visits to some programs.

"I've been to Alabama, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. I was most impressed with Vandy, Alabama and Kentucky. I was impressed with Arkansas State too," said Billingsey

Where does Kentucky stand for Billingsley?

"I like (Kentucky). I feel like they are a rising program. They have constantly been getting better over the years. I like the offensive line coach, Coach Summers. The first coach I talked to was Tee Martin," he continued.
