Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough LB/RB Ronnie McCullough isn't in any rush to make a decision. The offensive and defensive star has close to ten scholarship offers at this point.
"As of right now I probably won't make any official visits until the football season is over," McCullough said. "I'm just trying to keep my mind clear."
McCullough currently has offers from South Florida, UCF, Wisconsin, Rutgers, UConn, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Florida Atlantic. He's talked with a few coaches about official dates but hasn't finalized any visit yet.
"Coaches have been calling and telling me which dates would be best for me to come up," McCullough said. "I haven't made anything official but I have been talking with coaches about dates."
McCullough has indicated a high interest in Florida in the past but the Gators haven't extended an offer just yet. He's not sure if they will offer but he knows many schools are interested to see some of his senior season film.
"I think some more offers will be coming in if I keep doing what I'm doing," he said. "As of right now they (UF) haven't made an offer but I'm pretty sure I'll be receiving some offers once more coaches review some more of my game film. A lot of coaches have been calling because they want to see me on tape."
McCullough isn't ready to name a list of favorites or reveal what schools he'd like to visit the most.
"I don't really have a favorite," he said. "I like them all. Anybody interested in me right now, I'm interested in them. I'm not counting anybody out. As of right now I haven't even narrowed it down because I'm expecting more offers during the season. I'll wait until the end of the season to analyze it all and I'll take it from there."
Ronnie has attended Florida (vs. Miami) and South Florida (vs. FAU) home games this season and has made plans to attend a game at UCF in November. He says it's hard to attend any games any further away because of his football schedule.
"I plan on going to UCF when they play against Syracuse. I plan on making a lot more trips but it'll be easier when the season is over with. I would like to go to a lot more but we have games Friday night so it's kind of hard to make them. I'm going to try."
Always a power in the Tampa Bay area, Hillsborough is a perfect 5-0 this season.
"We're rolling," McCullough said. "I think I have in five games 600 yards rushing, 62 carries, eight touchdowns, and I have like 50 tackles."
McCullough's primary positions in high school are running back and inside linebacker and schools are split on where they would like him to play in college.
"It varies and it depends on which school. Some schools have said I could come in and play whichever one that helps them out the most and it just varies from school to school."
Does Ronnie have a preference for either offense or defense?
"The quickest way on the ballfield," he said.
