Toliver has whittled list down to two's top rated wide receiver prospect, Hempstead, Texas' Terrance Toliver, has gotten his list narrowed down to just two schools, and says he is excited about using the dead period to think over his decision before making a commitment.

"My top two are Florida and LSU," Toliver told Tiger Rag. "I'm looking forward to this dead period giving me some time to think. Things have been crazy around here."


Toliver, who finished his senior season with 42 catches for 842 yards and six touchdowns, has had offers coming from throughout the country, including places such as Oklahoma, USC and Miami, but says in the end, the two SEC schools were the ones who had what he is looking for.


"I like Florida because of their coaches," said Toliver. "I feel real comfortable around them and I like talking to them. They also run that spread offense, which is something I'd like being a part of."


"As for LSU, they have several receivers leaving this year, so I think I could come in and be a good fit, plus I like the pro style offense they use. I also have a real strong relationship with coach Larry Porter. Plus, LSU is close to home."


Toliver said that coach Porter, along with a handful other LSU coaches including wide receiver coach Todd Monken, offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher and head coach Les Miles, have made several visits to his house this fall, the most recent of which came sometime last week.


"The LSU coaches have come by a good bit," Toliver said. "We've talked about how well I would fit in at LSU. They're cool. Florida's coaches have been coming in some, too. They were out here last week."


Toliver was in Baton Rouge for his official visit with LSU at the beginning of this month, where one of the things that stood out the most to him was the academic facilities and program set up for student-athletes.


"One thing I'm looking for is a school that will be able to help me when I get there," he said. "LSU has a real good academic set up for the players. I liked that."


His official visit to Florida came back in early November when the Gators took on South Carolina.


"That Florida trip was cool," he said. "I just had a lot of fun hanging out with the coaches and the players. I feel comfortable at there and LSU. That's one thing that's important to me about my visits to both schools."


"I took my other official visits, too," He added, "But those don't really matter, it's between LSU and Florida. I don't want to get into the rest of them."


He said that his parents are also a fan of both of his top programs, and have told him they will be happy will his decision either way.


Initially, Toliver planned to announce his decision at the Army All-Star game, but after talking to his coaches has decided to wait and said he will most likely not make an announcement until signing day.
