Tennessee's top WR visits Ole Miss

Brian Sommer (WR, Alcoa, TN) - One of the top receivers in the South and the top wide out in the state of Tennessee had a chance to take in the Ole Miss Spring game this past Saturday.

"I liked it a lot. I was real surprised because one of my teammates, Rae Sykes, went down there last year and said it was OK but it did not blow him away. I did not know what to expect. When I saw their campus and facilities, I was blown away. I called Rae asked what he was tripping on because Ole Miss has the nicest campus and facilities out of all of the schools I have visited. I got a chance to talk to the coaches, go to the scrimmage, and it looks to be a program on the rise. It was nice to see all of that," added Brian Sommer.

Did anyone accompany Brian on his visit?

"My father came with me. He was equally impressed. He told me that he could really see me going to a school like Ole Miss."

What did the coaches have to say to Brian?

"Coach Freeze, my recruiting coach, was real anxious to see me. I have been wanting to meet him face to face because we talk so much on the phone, so you always want to put a face with the person you talk to. He told me how much I could help their program. Coach told me I could come right in and start. That gives you a lot of confidence. It makes me think that is where I need to go if they have that much confidence in me."

What impressed Brian the most about Ole Miss?

"Their facilities, from the indoor facility, to their practice fields, to their weight room, locker room, the tunnel that leads out to the field. Like I said, they have the nicest campus and facilities I have been to yet."

Which colleges have now offered Sommer?

"South Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Alabama"

Who is his most recent offer?

"Alabama offered me this week. I spoke with my recruiter from there on Monday. He told me he was going to text me sometime next week with Coach Saban on the phone so he can make it formal."

Who is closest to offering next?

"I think Colorado will be next to offer me. They are on me real hard."

Which colleges are now at the top of Brian's wish list?

"Ole Miss, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, the ones who have offered me. I also like Colorado, Purdue, Michigan, Louisville, North Carolina State, and Clemson has been on me real hard lately. If they are showing interest in me, I am going to show them interest back. I am wide open."

Where will Sommer visit next?

"I am going to Alabama's spring game on Saturday. That is it so far."
