Ficklin Hearing From Three

Morton (MS) High School is the home to a player, Randall Ficklin, that mamy recruiting experts would probably consider a sleeper, but the in-state schools definitely know about him.

Randall Ficklin Profile Page:

"Schools that are showing interest in me are Ole Miss, Southern Miss and Mississippi State," said Randall, who moved from Morton to Houston, Texas after his 9th grade year, then moved back at the beginning of last summer.

Any offers yet?

"None have offered," said the 6-4, 280-pounder who claims 4.8 speed in the forty yard dash. (Check out his video below to see how well he moves.-Gene)

What schools is he interested in?

"Mississippi State hasn't offered me, but I'm really interested in them. I attended their Junior Day," said Randall. "I like their facilities and their academics. I saw the Palmeiro Center and the weight room in their fieldhouse. I also like the team and coaches. (Assistant) Coach (Reed) Stringer is really interested in me, like he really wants me up there. And I've been a State fan since I was seven or eight. Everytime a game came on me and my daddy watched it.

"I'm also interested in Ole Miss. I'm going to the Ole Miss combine in a couple of weeks. We were supposed to go to the Ole Miss spring game, but we couldn't make it."

Although he didn't mention Southern Miss as one of his favorites, he did say that, "I've never been down there, but they are sending me a lot of letters."
