Ole Miss bringing in RB Shawn Bright

Shawn Bright (RB, Miami, FL) - The 5'9", 195 pound 2nd Team All-Dade selection is starting to get the attention of college coaches. This weekend Bright travels to Oxford(MS) to join a host of other prospects in Ole Miss' largest recruiting weekend of the year. Go inside to hear what Bright thinks about his upcoming visit to Oxford.

"We had a wonderful season," stated Shawn Bright. "We had a great team. It was my first year to start at running back. In previous years, I played some running back but mainly safety and outside linebacker. "

What were your season stats?

"I rushed for 1, 258 yards had 20 TD. I think I had around 250 yards receiving."

What schools are recruiting you?

"I am mainly hearing from Ole Miss, Western Illinois and Hampton. I am also being watched by West Virginia and Troy."

Which schools have offered?

"Western Illinois has offered and I think Ole Miss is close to offering."

Do you have any visits lined up?

"Yes, I'm going to Ole Miss this weekend (1/18) with my teammate Ty Hilton. The following week (1/25) I'm going to Western Illinois.

Who is recruiting you the hardest?

"I would have to say Ole Miss. They make me feel at home. I was just on the phone with them before you called. Coach Nix, their RB coach, used to coach for the Falcons and now he's at Ole Miss. I like him a lot and feel really comfortable with their new staff."

How do you feel about Western Illinois?

"They are my only offer right now. I am pretty comfortable with them, but I need to get to know their staff more. That is why I'm visiting. They don't recruit me like Ole Miss. Ole Miss gives me 100% in their recruitment.

Would you like to play with your teammate Eugene Hilton on the next level?

"Me and Ty would love to play for the same school, but we will do what's best for us on an individual level. We're looking forward to taking a visit to Ole Miss together this weekend."
