Patrick Durr
Durr's top school: JSU and Alcorn State

"They are really close to my house. They are just right down the road. I have a lot of family who went to JSU. I grew up watching the Tigers. And our RB coach, Nathan McClaurin, went to JSU. He is always telling me how nice it is over there"

Alcorn State: "I also have a lot of family who went to Alcorn too. One of my friends from N' West Rankin, Josh Brumfield, goes there. I will be going down there a lot to see him this year."

What about the rest of the Mississippi schools? "It is probably a tie between USM and MSU, but Ole Miss is real high too."

USM: "I hear a lot of good things about them from Bobby Weakley. He went to Brandon and was a running back for Southern. He said they like to run the ball."

MSU: "I always followed Jerious Norwood, and I like their academic programs they have set up for you. It seems like Coach Croom is the only one who sticks to his word. I like that."

"I do not know. I really like their campus and coaches. I went down there for Jr Day and really liked it. But I have not been hearing too much from them lately."
