"I don't have any scholarship offers yet," said running back Gary Russell.
"My favorites are Michigan, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Colorado, West Virginia, Syracuse and Indiana.
"I don't have a leader right now. I'm listening to everyone that has an interest in me. I feel I'm a Marshall Faulk type running back. I can do it all.
"I plan on attending the Michigan State camp this week."
Russell, a 5-foot-10, 205-pounder, from Columbus (Ohio) Walnut Ridge rushed for 1,800 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2002.
Russell was named all-district and all-city as a junior.
