"I've received offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama. Most all of the schools like me as a two-way guy."

    Of those seven, he has three at the top of his list.

    "I've narrowed my schools to three, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Missouri," said the talented dual-position player. "Mississippi State and Ole Miss are probably my top two."

    He explained why those three schools earn top honors.

    Mississippi State - "I like the coaching staff and all of the players that I have met. I also like their facilities."

    Ole Miss - "They have a good atmopsphere and it's a great place to play in. I also like their campus a lot."

    Missouri - "I've only talked to them on the phone right now. I'm going up there to visit in a couple of weeks."

    Trysten, who is primarily a pitcher, pointed out why college coaches are so interested in him.

    "I throw a fastball, which sits around 86-88 (miles per hour)," he said. "I also throw a circle change and a curveball. (Hitting-wise) I'm a gap hitter who hits with a little bit of power."
