Childers Planning Visits

Tori Childers is one of the biggest wide receivers on the east coast this year. The three-star player from Rock Hill (S.C.) has moved into the recruiting process slowly though he is excited about where he stands right now.

"Everything is great. I have three offers now and waiting on the fourth -- North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee [have offered]," says the 6-foot-6, 215-pounder who has aspirations of playing football and basketball in college. "They are going to let me play both, but it is all depending on academics."

The other team in the running is Michigan, a school that caught his attention when he spoke with their coaches.

"I talked to the wide receiver coach the other day and I need to send another game tape up there. After they evaluate their tape they will make their decision."

Even if Michigan would offer Childers, he says he does not believe they would jump into the lead.

"Honestly, I don't have a favorite right now. I plan to take a visit to all of them.

"South Carolina, I like Steve Spurrier's wide open attack. If you are a wide receiver you are going to get the ball.

"At Tennessee they are in a bowl game every year, so you can count on them to be in the SEC championship game or a big-time bowl game.

"North Carolina is a school where I can play both sports and their football team is on the rise."
BR> Childers plans on sitting down and mapping out his official visits this week, though it could take a while before he has all of them finalized.

"The first day of school is Wednesday for me, and I am going plan all the official visits out with my guidance counselor. I want to do it during the year and wait until signing day to make a decision."
