Matthews To Visit New Mexico

Chris Matthews tells us he is getting ready to come out for a visit.

"I'm calling the New Mexico coaching staff to set up a visit real soon," says 6-5 210lb WR Chris Matthews of Los Angeles Harbor C.C.

 While the Seahawks aren't having a great year Matthews has really opened up the eyes of plenty of D-I schools including the University of New Mexico, one of three schools that Matthews currently has an official offer from.

 "I currently have 3 offers," says Matthews. "New Mexico, Akron, and Marshall have all offered me so far. I think as soon as the season is over I should be hearing from more schools as well."

 Earlier this year Scout.com's Scott Eklund spoke with LA Harbor's Offensive Coordinator Brett Peabody about Matthew's game. "Chris is an impossible cover man-to-man. He's huge (6-5, 205) and he came to us pretty raw because he played tight end in high school. We love his abilities and he's just ready to explode this fall. We're really excited about him and what he brings to the table."

 Matthew's hasn't disappointed either as 7 games into the season Chris had over 700 yards receiving and 4 touchdowns.

 Matthews did say he tries to catch the teams recruiting him on television when possible. "It's pretty hard sometimes," says Matthews. "We play on the same day so I can't catch all the games." Matthews did say that he has been able to see the Lobos play on The Mtn and liked the style of offense New Mexico is playing.

"Right now if I were to choose a favorite it would be New Mexico," said Matthews. "I like their offense and can see myself fitting in there."

 Obviously the Lobo coaching staff like many D-I staffs are looking to get Chris Matthews in for a visit, and according to Chris that should happen real soon as he plans on visiting New Mexico sometime after LA Harbor's season is over.
