Colleges continue to come by the school to see Highland, Mo. wide receiver Jerrill Humphrey. The race could be close to coming to an end.
"Jerrill is playing things pretty close to the vest," Highland coach Kevin Hillman said. "He is listening to everyone and not tipping his hand much at all. He is also very talented in basketball, but is starting to think of himself as a football player on the next level."
Several colleges apparently feel the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Humphrey can be a good football player too based on the traffic that has been by the school in the past week.

"Kansas State and Missouri came by the school earlier this week," Hillman said. "Purdue is planning to come by Monday and Kansas keeps promising they will get down here soon. Colorado, Arkansas, Indiana and Iowa have all requested film recently and will watch that film and get back to me on when they want to come by here."
The schools had better not waste too much time in getting by the school.
"Jerrill is hoping to make an early decision. I think he would like to have had it done before school was out, but I don't know if we'll get that done or not. He is wanting to hear all the schools that want to talk to him, but he could decide soon."
The Missouri Tigers are close to home and Humphrey is very familiar with their program.
"He knows a lot about Missouri," Hillman said. "They are right here and it is a school he can follow easiliy. It is close to home. But some of the other schools have opened his eyes to some other things. Kansas State is a school that is ranked in the top 15 at least every year. The others have things they can offer as well. So, I don't know if he is locked into going to Missouri because they are close to home or anything. I truly think he wants to see what is out there for him and make the best choice."
