Southern Miss has shown that it wants to continue to expand its recruiting reach.
A few days ago, they continued that trend by offering a talented lineman from Lake Dallas High School. Segun Ijiyera picked up an offer from the Golden Eagles, his first.
"I picked up the offer from Southern Miss through a direct message on twitter," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I am trying to get in contact with them, they want to talk to me on the phone directly."
He said that first offer is something he will never forget.
"I was an amazing feeling just to know that I can play college football and get a great education," he said.
Right now, Ijiyera said he is playing Center for his high school and that is where he's also being recruited by the Golden Eagles. He's hoping to take a visit as soon as possible, but it might have to be pushed back to the summer.
"It really seems like a great program and I can't wait for my opportunity to get down there," he added.
He's also being recruited by a few Ivy League schools.
