With such a strong list of offers, it is understandable how a player may jump at the opportunity to create a short list of favorites and just last month the 6-foot-4, 195-pound receiver listed Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida State and Florida as his leaders. However, things have apparently changed for Matthews over the past few weeks.
"Some days I feel like I know where I want to go and then other days I don't," he explained. "Right now I'd say that I don't really have any favorites. I want to keep all of my options open for now."
Early next month Matthew's will being a camp schedule that would probably be to much for most to handle, making trips to the midwest and throughout the southeast.
"I'm going to be all over the place," Matthews said. "I'm going to camp at Ohio State, Michigan, Louisville, Auburn, Florida State and Florida. I'd also like to camp at Oklahoma, but that might be to far for me to go right now."
Last fall he hauled in 26 receptions for 397 yards and four touchdowns for Edgewater and in addition to becoming the top target for his team's new quarterback, he is also preparing to take on more of a leadership role as a senior.
"The ultimate goal for us this year is to be competitive as a team," said Matthews. "We have a lot of young guys this year."
While it may be a team that is replacing a number of departed starters, Matthew's team posted a 33-7 win in it's spring game earlier this week.
"We did pretty good," he continued. "I had a pretty good game. I had two catches, but I'm not sure how many yards I had."
His ability to lead both on and off the field is yet another reason that has many of the country's top coaches, including Louisville assistant Tony Levine, working hard to make him a member of future squads at their school's.
"I talked to Coach Levine a couple weeks ago and I actually saw one of [UofL's] other coaches (Joe Whitt) at a different spring game," he said. "Louisville's very attractive because of the offense they have, plus they will have a good quarterback coming back."
Matthews also said that he hopes to make his college decision before the start of his senior season.
