Becton pulls in first offer
Tray Becton talked with Scout about his offer from Memphis and you can see his answers to our questions right here... When did Memphis offer you? "Memphis offered me last Friday." How did you find out about the offer? "Coach Porter told me that he wanted to meet with my mom and I but my mom couldn't make it so my head Coach and I had a meeting with him on Friday." Have you spoken with a coach from Memphis since they offered? If so, what did they say they liked about you? "No I haven't spoken with the Coach yet since last friday but hopefully I will soon." Memphis being close to home, does that give them an advantage? "Memphis being close to home doesn't give them an advantage, but both my mom and dad played at memphis. My mom played basketball there and my dad played football there with Coach Porter and Coach Brown, the new assistant conditioning coach. And they also have the Coach who actually recruited my dad." Who else are you hearing from right now? "I'm getting mail from a big variety of schools but mainly right now I am hearing from Oregon, Alabama, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Miami, UCLA, Missouri, and Southern Miss." Do you have an early favorite or top five? "I don't really have any favorites but I like Oregon a lot. I like Memphis, Alabama, Mississippi State, and Arkansas too. I would love to hear from West Virginia too." Does Memphis offering you first mean something to you? "It means a lot to me that they offered first. It makes me think that they like me the most." Who do you think could be next to offer? "i think that maybe Arkansas or Oregon will be the next but hopefully both." What does it feel like to have that first offer in now? "Having an offer is a big relief. It's what I've been praying for. It's good to know that I can go to college for four years and play football. So now I'm just going to focus on winning a state title with my team and work even harder in the class room." When would like to make your decision? "I would like to make my decision as soon as possible because I don't want it to be a distraction on my team. Hopefully I will make it no later then mid summer.
