Timmons is getting just as much mail from colleges for his track prowess as his football prowess and has heard often from UConn, Maryland, Texas Tech, and Tennessee, who all would like to see him run for them.
"My three favorites right now are Maryland, UConn, and Tennessee," says Timmons, who says that if he decides on Tennessee, he will walk on to the football team.
But don't make the mistake that the 5'10" 175 pound Timmons is just a track athlete playing football.
"I love to play football," says Timmons. "I don't care what position I play. I play running back, wide receiver, and defensive back now, and my coaches think I should be a defensive back in college, but I like offense. A lot of the college coaches think I should have the ball in my hands because of my speed."
Timmons already took an unofficial visit to UConn where he took in a basketball game, and also received tickets to do the same at both Boston College and Penn State, though he didn't go to either. He wants to go on a visit to Maryland and may camp at UConn, Virginia Tech, and Temple.
Knowledge Timmons has a 2.8 GPA and plans to wait to commit so he can have as many choices as possible.
