Riles collecting offers

At 6-foot-5, 230-pounds, Bessemer, Ala., athlete Jervohnte Riles can play a number of positions.

His versatility has already landed him several scholarship offers and recognition from colleges across the Southeast.

Riles has picked up offers from Mississippi State, South Carolina and Southern Miss and is also hearing from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and UAB.

"Recruiting is going good," Riles said. "I'm not going to make an early decision. I'm getting calls on a daily basis from schools every day or every other day."

The first school to tender a scholarship to Riles was Mississippi State, who already has a pair of former Jess Lanier stars in Nick Bell and Brandon Heavens on the roster.

"Mississippi State has been real nice," Riles said. "It's a school that I can see myself going to. I've got two teammates that go there. They treat me real nice when I go down there to visit."

Riles has already made several visits to Starkville and most recently attended the Bulldogs spring game.
