In recent weeks, cornerback David Kamara of Loganville (Ga.) Grayson has seen interest in him swell.
First Ole Miss offered. Then Clemson and Mississippi State followed.
"It's been crazy," Kamara said. "I'm talking to a lot of coaches. A lot of schools are still looking at me."

At this stage, two programs lead.
"I'd probably say Clemson and LSU are at the top," Kamara said. "To me, they're like the same. I like both of them."
Although LSU has not offered, Kamara visited there last week and got positive vibes from the Tigers, he said.
"I talked to Coach [Les] Miles and he said he really liked me," Kamara said. "He said he wanted me to come to their camp. He said I'd go good with their corners coach. He played in the NFL for seven years and can get me to the next level."
Asked what his chances of getting a Tigers offer were, Kamara replied, "They seem real high."
Besides LSU, Kamara also has visited Clemson twice, and Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss once each.
"I think the Ole Miss visit [stands out]," Kamara said. "I liked it up there. We were with Robert Nkemdiche's bother [Denzel], and he showed us a good time. The coaches were cool. They were enthusiastic about changing their program."
Kamara intended to visit Vanderbilt on Saturday, but after making the long drive to and from Baton Rouge, La., last weekend, that trip is now off. In the meantime, he is focused on recovering from a dislocated rib sustained while lifting weights.
He expects to be fully recovered when spring practice starts in May.
"I'll be practicing by then," Kamara said.
