Will Coach O's connections land T-Bob Hebert?

T-Bob Hebert (OC, Atlanta, GA) - It is no secret that the Rebel's number one target at the center position is T-Bob Hebert. He is unquestionable one of the top center prospects in the country, and it does not hurt that his father, Bobby, was teammates and roommates in college with the Ole Miss head coach.

"Ole Miss, they just have a coaching staff that I am real comfortable around. My father and Coach Orgeron were teammates and roommates in college, so I have known Coach O all of my life. I also like their campus. It is real homey feeling," stated T-Bob Hebert.

Hebert recently picked up another offer from one of the top programs in the country.

"Coach Gonzalez from Florida offered me last Thursday. They had been trying to get in touch with me for a while to let me know, but they had the wrong phone number."

Which colleges have now offered?

"Man, I hate to leave out anybody, but Georgia, Ole Miss, LSU, Auburn, Florida, Vandy, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Maryland, Boston College, Hawaii, and I think that is about it."

Which colleges have caught T-Bob's eye?

"I still like all of the schools who are interested in me, but Georgia, Ole Miss, and LSU have always been up there. I plan on taking official visits to those three schools and probably Florida and Hawaii. Those will be the five schools I will visit during the fall and after my season is over."

What does he like about his other two favorites?

"I grew up rooting for LSU, and I still have a lot of family down there. They have a real good program down there too."

"Georgia is just a great school. I also have a lot of friends who go to Georgia. As far as their football program, Coach Richt has just really got that program going. They are competing for the SEC year in and year out."

This year we have seen a trend of early commitments. Could T-Bob follow pursuit?

"No, I am going to take all of my visits. It will definitely be after my season is over before I think about all of that stuff."
