Three Lead for Tennessee QB

Will Gross, who will visit Louisville in April, is one offer away from double-digits and is regarded as the number one quarterback in Tennessee. Gross spoke with's Chad Simmons about his current three favorites.

"Arkansas State, Memphis, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Louisville, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee have offered me," Will Gross told Scout. "I am getting about 10-12 pieces a mail a day from schools right now, so I think I will get my tenth offer soon. Alabama, Illinois, and Texas A&M are sending me the most right now."

The talented signal caller out of Memphis, Tn. put up monster numbers over the past two seasons. He has thrown for over 9,000 yards and that is helping him attract attention.

"Yeah, the coaches like the numbers I have put up. As a sophomore, I threw for 5,226 yards, 38 touchdowns, and six touchdowns. As a junior, I threw for 4,038 yards, 36 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. All we do is throw the football, so I get the chance to make plays and show what I can do with the football."

Right now, three schools stand out above the rest for the 6-foot-2, 190 pound junior.

"I really like Mississippi State, Louisville, and Kentucky the most," he said. "I have had a great visit to Mississippi State and both me and my mom really liked it there. I am looking for a place that feels like home and I felt like that there. I will be visiting Louisville in April."

An early decision for Gross is not of the question.

"I do not when I will be ready yet, but I am not ready right now. I need to take some more visits, see a few more places, and then I think I could commit to someone. I just need to find the right school and then I will know it is the right time to commit. I do not think it will take me too long."

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
