At this past weekend's BadgerSports 7-on-7 National Championships in Dallas, one of the surprises was Oxford (Miss.) Lafayette quarterback Jeremy Liggins. Ranked as a dual-threat passer, it would not seem like the 7-on-7 format would be Liggins' forte. However, he excelled at the event.
Liggins helped lead Team Louisiana to the semifinals, connecting on short, intermediate and deep throws with regularity. The big 6-foot-3, 270-pound passer has seen his stock skyrocket as of late with one conference in particular taking notice.
"I've been offered by everybody in the SEC except for Florida and South Carolina," Liggins said.

Liggins has taken a pair of unofficial visits so far this summer and he has enjoyed both places.
"I've been to LSU for their Bayou Picnic," he said. "I also went over to Alabama for their A Day. Both of them were a lot of fun. I liked both places a lot and liked getting to talk to the coaches and everything."
Though Liggins plays quarterback in high school, his size could eventually land him somewhere such as linebacker or defensive end. While he has not heard talk of moving positions, he would not be completely averse to it.
"They all want me as a quarterback," he said. "I feel like I can play quarterback if I get the right techniques and the right coaching. If I have to move to another position to help the team win, I'll do it."
Liggins does not have a favorite at this point in time but does admit that four schools currently stand out to him.
"My top four are actually LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss and Mississippi State," he said. "It's not in any particular order right now."
Though a lot of prospects are making early commitments, Liggins will not likely follow suit.
"I have until Feb. 3 so I don't know when I'm going to (commit)," he said. "Whenever I feel like I'm ready I'll do it. I'm going to try and take all my official visits. I don't have any set up just yet but I'm working on it."
