Recruiting: ATH Chris Russell

Athletes who stand 6-foot-2, weigh 185 pounds, and run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds are in short supply. Such athletes can be used as wide receivers or defensive backs depending on team needs. Chris Russell is such an athlete and the Ole Miss Rebels are in the hunt but which team has the inside track for Russell's services?

"I was a fan of Tennessee growing up," said Russell. "They are my number one team hands down and I will commit if they offer. The other teams I like are Ole Miss, Notre Dame, and Florida. They have all offered. Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, and Alabama have also offered. I plan on making my decision after the season."

Russell, who plays at Hillsboro High School in Nashville, Tennessee, made 35 tackles and five interceptions last year. He also contributed seven receptions for 65 yards and one touchdown on offense. Russell also competes on the basketball team.
