His consistent work ethic earned him All-District honors on the field last season as well as a 3.3 GPA in the class room.

Although Russell has not received any offers yet, he still hopes to hear from a few schools.

"I've kept in close contact with Louisiana Tech, Tulane, and Southern Mississippi," Russell said.

Why those schools?

"First off, I like those schools because they are close to home and I like the conferences (Conference USA and Western Athletic Conference) they are in," Russell explained.

With that said, Russell still plans on showing off his skills at a couple of camps.

"I'm going to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette camp on July 8th and then a LSU camp after that," Russell informed.

Russell has faith that his "understanding of what is going on during a game" as well as his "ability to read coverages" will help him fulfill a personal goal he has set for himself this upcoming season.

Russell said enthusiastically, "My goal for this upcoming season is to get offered and go to college!"
