Telvin Hooks has three schools chasing him right now. "FIU, Purdue and Louisiana Lafayette have gotten a hold of me," Hooks said when asked which schools have called him this month. "I am going to visit Purdue October 16th. I don't know where else I am going yet." Hooks, 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, claims a 3.0 GPA and has three schools on top of his list right now. "I like Purdue, Northwestern and Louisiana-Lafayette," he said. "Purdue, I got friends there and if I go there they don't have a lot of running backs and I could play as a true freshman. I haven't gotten to see Northwestern play, but they have been showing interest in me. Lafayette, I like the Coach Hurlie Brown there, he is a good coach. I just got done talking to (former Mainland teammate and current ULL TE( Amari Williams and he told me it was nice. The standout running back prospect, who doesn't have a single favorite yet, talked about what he's looking for in a school. "I am looking for academics; make sure I am getting a good education," he said. Hooks then talked about his goals for the rest of the season. "I want to get better at taking the ball all the way. I am working on it real hard. I got 65 yards and a touchdown last game. One of my goals is getting 1,000 yards rushing, at least."
