Recruiting: Taking It One Day At A Time

Wide receiver Tobias Singleton of Madison (Central), Miss., has a lot on his plate these days. The speedster is getting ready for the Mississippi state track meet Saturday at Pearl.

"Yeah, the state meet is this Saturday. I'm running the 100, 4x100, and 4x200," said Singleton, who promised to give us an update on how he does.

"Last time I ran the forty I ran 4.42 the first time and then the last time I ran 4.35, so I would say my time is somewhere in between that."

As for an update on his recruiting, he gave us that.

"It's good and I'm taking it one day at a time," he said, adding that all of the schools are equal and he hasn't decided on any favorites at this stage. "Penn State has offered and I'm hearing from them. I'm wide open. My plan is to knock it down on the day after football season."

No surprise that Singleton will take his recruiting deep into the season. He is a premier catch, pun intended with his speed and 6-2 and 190-pound size.

"The school has got to have good people," answered Singleton when asked what he was looking for in a school. "I need to fit in with the coaches and with the teammates, and then I'm looking for the right place with the right academics."

Singleton added that right now he plans on majoring in accounting. "I want to count my own money."

Oklahoma State has offered Singleton along with Oklahoma and Texas Tech from the Big 12 region. Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Notre Dame, Penn State, and UCLA are among the offers from other schools.

Singleton had 55 receptions last season in being named All-State by The Clarion Ledger. He had 890 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns and 1,491 all-purpose yards. He averaged 37 yards on kickoff returns and took three for touchdowns. As a freshman he was named 5A All-State with 49 catches for 942 yards and 13 touchdowns.
