They both plan to get to know each other better this upcoming Tuesday when Spurrier makes an in-house visit to Laurinburg to see Sexton.
Sexton is a big Spurrier fan, so to receive a call from the "Ol' Ball Coach" certainly excited the Scout.com three-star prospect.
"It was cool when I checked my voicemail and Steve Spurrier left a message," remarked Sexton. "He's looking for a quarterback and to know that he called me wanting me to come play for him is pretty much a big deal."
Before Spurrier's call, Sexton had narrowed his list to a solid final five: North Carolina, N.C. State, Florida State, Clemson and Virginia Tech. Now, his recruitment is further blurred and the Gamecocks now have a firm chance in the Sexton Sweepstakes.
"I'm not sure right now," stated Sexton in regards to his favorites. "I have been thinking about it a lot and I don't know what's going to happen now. I plan on making my decision next week. I guess you can say it would make it six schools. I'm going to look at them and hear what he [Coach Spurrier] has to say and think about it and see if I want to think about it a little longer or go ahead and commit."
Sexton will be graduating in December and enrolling in his chosen school in January. His early graduation puts a rush on his decision making process, which is why Sexton hopes to have his mind made up sometime next week.
