What teams are recruiting you, Bobby?

Do you have a favorite or favorites?
"Pretty much all the ones I just mentioned."

What do you like about them?
"All of them are powerhouses. All of them have good histories of doing good things. I also like all the coaches.

Bobby, who is the top senior linebacker in the state of Mississippi State this year?
"(Laugh) I would say Ken Griffith from Brandon High School."

[I was joking around with Bobby when I asked him this question. Ken, his Brandon HS teammate, was standing next to him.-Gene]
