"I've been offered scholarships by Northwestern, Wake Forest, Purdue, Duke, Southern Mississippi, West Virginia and Furman," said offensive lineman Austin Matthews.
"I'm visiting Northwestern (11-15) this weekend. I'm going to Wake Forest (12-6) and Vanderbilt (1-10) as well.
"Florida is calling me every week but they haven't offered me a scholarship yet. The three schools that I have visits set up with and Florida would be my favorites."
Matthews, a 6-foot-6, 275-pounder, from Orange Park, Florida is a three-year varsity starter. He was named all-conference the past two seasons, all-city as a junior and this year he was nominated for the Georgia-Florida all-star game.
Matthews has played every position on the offensive line and he says some schools are recruiting him as a tackle and some want him as a summer.
What will it take to get a signature from Austin Matthews on February 5th?
"I'm looking for a city campus. That's what makes Northwestern (Chicago) and Vanderbilt (Nashville) so appealing.
"I'm looking for a smaller campus and student body. Vanderbilt has 10,000 students and Florida has 45,000 students.
"Obviously I'll be looking for a comfort level. I need to be comfortable around the coaches and the players." Matthews said.
