Recruiting wise, Corley has been a hot commodity lately too. He's currently talking to top schools LSU, Oklahoma and LSU as of late.

"Really, I have been talking to a lot of new schools," Corley. "The schools that have been recruiting me the hardest are Tennessee, Michigan State and LSU. Schools have been trying to get in contact with me a lot."

As far as what he's looking for in his future program, Corley says coaching will play a big factor in his decision.

Just the relationship with the coaches and see if they really do want me," Corley said. "Or is just an offer they gave me just because. Also, education is going to be a big part of it."

Corley had been planning to be make his commitment before the season, but with new schools coming after him, he says he will most likely commit during the season.
