Chris Bacon, DB, from Westlake HS near Atlanta (GA) recently picked up an offer to Southern Miss. The 6'0, 180lb athlete has played just about everywhere for his high school, and colleges are starting to take notice of his abilities.
From his comments, it appears Southern Miss is looking at him on the defensive side of the ball when they extended him an offer.
"I was in class and I was called to my coaches' office and I spoke with Coach Nicholson," Bacon told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"He was just telling me how great the school was and how they need defensive backs. He said I was one they were looking for and they offered me a scholarship.
"Now, I have a visit set up for January 20th."
He said Nicholson took time to let him know about what the Golden Eagle program could have to offer him.
"I knew a little bit about the school and I knew Brett Favre, of course," he said.
"But Coach Nicholson informed me of a lot about the school."
Right now, his visit to Southern Miss is his only scheduled official, but it is doubtful that will remain his only one.
"I am hearing from Eastern Michigan, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Purdue, and a couple of more," he added. "Southern Miss is certainly one of my top schools right now."
