Macon (Ga.) Central receiver Corey Earls has been working hard at getting his name out there even more than before. He first burst onto the Southeast recruiting scene with a solid Athens NIKE Camp performance that saw him run a sub 4.4-second time in the 40-yard dash. He then performed well at Auburn, Clemson and Georgia Tech's camps.
Yet he still has only one offer to show for those efforts – an offer from Marshall.
"Marshall offered me about a month or two ago," Earls, who is 6-foot and 177 pounds, said. "I talked to the coach up there that is recruiting my area. I can't remember his name, but he was talking about how they're only going to sign one good receiver this year, and they wanted me to be their guy.
"I was very high on their list, and I'm very interested in talking to them more."
But at this point Earls hopes to see if something unfolds at one of the other schools that he camped at. He said Clemson assistant Jack Hines and Georgia Tech assistant Buddy Geis are the two main coaches he can remember that are recruiting him.
"Georgia Tech is talking about offering and Auburn has been thinking about it," Earls said. "They need more film. So I think a lot of people are going to wait and see what happens after my senior season.
"I'm not in a big rush. I want to see what unfolds."
