After cutting his college choices down to a final three back in July, three-star Memphis (Tenn.) East center Bobby Billingsley has opened things up a little bit in anticipation of his final decision.
Billingsley still likes Memphis, Middle Tennessee State and Texas Tech, but now said he's also considering Ole Miss and is holding out for an offer from Auburn.
"I think Auburn and Ole Miss are coming into play," Billingsley said. "Auburn hasn't offered but Ole Miss has so I'm considering them as well."

Billingsley, who plays for a Memphis East team loaded with talent, has been in touch with Auburn's coaches over the last month, and is planning to take an unofficial visit when the Tigers host Mississippi State on Saturday.
Ole Miss entered the race for Billingsley after his teammate, defensive tackle prospect and Rebels' commit Herbert Moore, consistently hounded his friend to consider the school.
Now the duo is set to take an official visit for the Rebels game against Texas on Sept. 15.
"We're trying to go together," Billingsley said. "He's been talking to me about them a lot."
Even though he's added more schools to his list, Billingsley said he's hoping to make a decision within the next month.
While he's projected as a center in college, he's spend the first three weeks of the high school season playing all across the offensive line. In last week's 36-6 victory over Memphis (Tenn.) Central, he played right tackle, and went head-to-head all game long with four-star LSU commit Frank Herron.
Billingsley said he feels like he got the better of the match up.
"I think I got the best of him that game," Billingsley said. "I didn't give up a sack and he only one tackle so I think I did good."
