Memphis (Tenn.) White Station linebacker Chris Marve knows which conference he wants to play his college football in.
"I love the SEC," Marve said. "Any schools in the SEC I love."
Originally from Baton Rouge, La., Marve has spent his entire life watching SEC football.
"It's so competitive," he said. "Every school has a chance to win every weekend. There's so much talent. Every school is packed with talent.
"I love it."
The 6-foot, 225-pounder is currently getting attention from most of the league in the form of letters. He is waiting for his first scholarship offer.
"I'm getting letters from schools in the SEC, from Ivy League schools, stuff like that," Marve said. "I'm going on an unofficial visit to Ole Miss.
"I also plan on attending the NIKE combine in June and Florida State's camp."
Marve is a balanced linebacker prospect.
"I try my best to do it all, I love to move, run, hit read. I consider reading as one of my best qualities. I don't stop until I get to the ball."
Marve attended the Rivals.com Junior Day last Saturday at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Miss.
"I learned etiquette, the proper etiquette to talk to a coach," Marve said.
