Akeem Auguste is one of the top cover corners in the entire state of Florida. The talented junior from Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade spoke about the latest on the recruiting front.

"I picked up a few new offers," Auguste said. "I've now gotten them from Pittsburgh, Florida, Auburn, Virginia, South Carolina, and Ole Miss."

The talented cornerback prospect broke down some of his offers and what his thoughts are on some of them.

"Ole Miss was my first offer and they're recruiting me the hardest," he said. "I think the opportunity to play right away is there. Florida, I went to their spring game and it's a real impressive place. Auburn's offered four of my teammates so a package deal could be a possibility. Pittsburgh just offered recently and they're and up and coming program."

Another school that's on Akeem Auguste's list is the hometown Hurricanes.

"I like UM a lot too," he said. "They're close to home and I like the atmosphere there. Coach Cristobal has talked about offering a scholarship but I haven't gotten anything in writing yet. I'm sure they'll do that soon."

Auguste and his Chaminade team will play its intrasquad spring game on May 20.
