Timmons: 'It Comes Down to Two Main Schools'

In February, Aldine Eisenhower wide receiver Greg Timmons decided to give a verbal to Texas. Now only a month later, is Timmons set in his decision? Which school is making a push for the talented 2009 wide receiver and trying to snag him from the Horns?

After making the pledge to Texas in mid-February, Aldine Eisenhower wide receiver Greg Timmons called the offer a ‘dream come true.' But now that some time has set in and he has had time to think, how solid was that commitment?

"The bottom line is, I'm solid to Texas," Timmons said. "But, I am still looking around."

With that said, the 6-2, 195-pound Timmons may entertain other schools while staying committed. He chose the Longhorns over other offers from Minnesota, Texas A&M and Houston. During the conversation, a few other schools came up.

There are a few spring games he may attend in the near future.

"I'm going to the Texas' spring game and I might go up to the one at (Texas) A&M," Timmons said.

But, before all of the offers Timmons had a Big 12 school in mind that had really caught his attention early on. Now, where do they come into play?

"Really, it comes down to two main schools: Texas and Oklahoma," Timmons said. "I have been to Oklahoma three times, but I might go back. If Oklahoma offers me, it will be a real tough decision for me. I do have interest in them, but I am still solid to Texas."

Timmons said that the feelings he has now really started once he gave his verbal commitment. Now that the deed is done, plenty of programs have started making contact.

He explained how that opened up his recruitment more than ever.

"Ever since I committed, more colleges started seeing what I can do and a lot interest started coming my way," Timmons, who caught 41 passes for 784 yards and six touchdowns said. "It just seemed like a lot things started happening."

Now that the recruiting pressure has built up with the commitment, Timmons said he wants to remain committed right now. One of the big factors that plays into this because he likes the Texas coaching staff and the offense.

"Texas is a good school and I feel I fit right in," Timmons said. "During my unofficial visit up there (Austin), I watched the offense real close. I fit in with that style of offense and I think I will be a good fit for the Longhorn program."
