Will Toliver announce in San Antonio?

Terrance Toliver has reached the age when Christmas time lost that childhood magic- when he would wake up and run into the living room to look for presents.

All that the nation's No. 1 receiver had to look forward to around Christmas time this year are bowl games at his top two schools LSU and Florida, and an upcoming week-long extravaganza at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.


The 6-4, 185-pounder from Hempstead (Texas) said that the Holidays have been kind of low key since the "Dead Period" is upon us but he has been staying in touch with coaches from his two remaining suitors.


"I received text messages from coach (Larry) Porter and (Todd) Monken telling me merry Christmas," said Toliver. "I was expecting something like that from them, just because I've been talking to them just about every day. I also got messages from the coaches at Florida."


Next up for Toliver will be his departure for the U.S. Army All-American game and he is ready to show the nation why he is rated so highly by Scout.com.



"I'm ready to make a big showing in that game," said Toliver. "I'm going to do what I do best. I know if I go into that game really focused and prepared, I'll have a great game. I'm also really looking forward to having an all-star caliber quarterback throw me some balls. I think that will help show my real talent."


Toliver is leaving next Monday and said he is looking forward to getting together with his teammates at practice.


"I really won't be asking them a lot of questions about recruiting and stuff like that," said Toliver. "I just want to get to hang out with them and make sure we are all on the same page for the game. I've met some of the bigger name guys before; they're all pretty cool."


Another important part of the game for Toliver is that he may make his decision on which school he will be committing to. While he did not confirm that he would, he sounded pretty excited.


"I was definitely thinking about it," he said. "I just might if I have a good week and I'm really pumped about it. I'm just going to go with whatever I feel that day."


January 6 could be a big day for the LSU Tigers and it could be a lot bigger if Terrance Toliver pulls a purple and gold hat out of his bag.
