2 new SEC offers for Toney

Inside linebacker Cameron Toney of Huntsville (Ala.) had two offers when Friday began. By day's end, he had added two more.
"Tennessee and Mississippi State offered," Toney said.
Those programs join Alabama and Auburn, which previously pulled the trigger. The newest additions shouldn't come as a surprise. Mississippi State has been actively recruiting Toney for awhile. Meanwhile, Tennessee's new defensive coordinator -- Sal Sunseri - is someone Toney knows well.

"He offered me when he was at Bama," Toney said. "I was talking to [Tennessee assistant Derrick Ansley] on Friday. Then he put Coach Sal on the phone, and Coach Sal offered."
The 6-feet-3, 225-pound Toney speaks highly of Suneri.
"He's a great guy," Toney said. "He's one of my favorite coaches out there. He was the best recruiter I had when he was at Alabama."
Co-defensive coordinator Geoff Collins is Toney's primary recruiter for Mississippi State.
"It's a nice program," Toney said. "I haven't been there so I don't know much about them though. Coach Collins came to one of my games last year."
This year, Toney has yet to take any visits. However, plenty of coaches have come to see him. According to Toney, both Gene Chizik of Auburn and Nick Saban of Alabama have stopped by Huntsville this winter, along with assistants from other schools such as Vanderbilt.
"I'm going to try to go to Tennessee in March and probably Auburn on the 25th of this month," Toney said.
In December, Toney said he was close to committing to the Tide. Now, though, he claims to have no leader even though he admittedly is a lifelong Tide fan.
"A lot of other schools and offers came in," Toney said. "I was thinking about committing but I didn't want to lose out on anything. I didn't know what I was going to get."
Who might be next to offer?
Toney said LSU could be a program to watch.
