Molton has offer, but likes LSU

Destrehan (La.) wide out Timothy Molton (6-3, 185, 4.5) is one of the top receivers in the South for 2008 and he is in talks with several tradition-rich schools like LSU, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama and Ole Miss.

So far, he has received a scholarship offer from Ole Miss but the hometown team is sitting on top.

"Right now LSU stands out the most," said Molton. "I've received the most letters from them and I'd say that right now they are my favorite. I talked with coach (Larry) Porter last week and he asked me if I would be making it to the spring game and I told him I'd be there."

Molton said he has been an LSU fan all his life and he has connections to the Tiger program through current Tiger and former Destrehan standout Jai Eugene.

He told Tiger Rag that he hopes this game will give him a chance to interact more closely with the coaches and get some questions answered.

"I'm not really expecting much from the game itself," said Molton. "I really want to use this chance to see more of the coaches. I want to ask them questions, have them ask me questions and basically get to know each other better."

Molton missed junior day at LSU, but said he has not taken any other visits.

He is slated to take a trip to Ole Miss for its spring game on April 7.

"I really haven't had a chance to view Ole Miss, I've only talked to the coaches and received letters from them," said Molton. "I've been to LSU a lot, so I really can't compare the two right now. I'll know more after my visit."

Molton said he knows he brings both good qualities as a player but has some things to work on in other areas.

"On the field, just my size and speed separate me from other receivers," he said. "Right now, though, my GPA is a 2.3. My coach called me into the office the other day and let me know that it's one of the reasons I haven't received more offers. I'm taking the ACT in April, so hopefully that will help."
