The top overall prospect in the state of Louisiana recently returned from an unofficial visit to a Southeastern Conference program and talked about the schools he has interest in at this time.
Rayville wide receiver Chris Tolliver made an unofficial visit to Alabama during the Crimson Tide's prospect camp. Though he didn't work out during the event because of a tweaked hamstring, he came away impressed with the program in Tuscaloosa.
"(Alabama) is a very nice school," he said. "They showed me a good time while I was up there and all of that. I talked to (Crimson Tide head coach) Nick Saban a little bit, but nothing real formal."
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder added that he plans to make Alabama one of his five official visits.
LSU remains strongly in the hunt for Tolliver.
"They are still recruiting me hard," he said. "I am going down there in July (for prospect camp), but I may not stay overnight. I may just stay there for one day or so."
During the spring evaluation period, Florida was hot on Tolliver's trail and the Gators remain in the hunt.
"Before the summer, Florida was recruiting me real hard," he said. "Me and my coach are trying to work it out for me to get down there (this summer), but I don't know if that's going to happen. I may try to take an official visit down there or something."
Other schools also remain in the picture for Tolliver, who caught 76 passes for 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns last season.
"I also like Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech and Auburn," he said. "But I haven't heard from Auburn in a long time."
Tolliver talked about being rated as the top prospect in the Pelican State by Rivals.com.
"It was very nice," he said. "I think as soon as it came up, everybody was coming up to me and showing me the newspapers and things like that."
Tolliver has several goals for next season.
"I just want to be a great student and a leader in my community," he said. "I want to get my G.P.A. up and do great on my exams."
Tolliver, a Rivals100 member, is the nation's No. 13 overall wide receiver prospect.
