Tulsa (Okla.) East Central linebacker Popsey Floyd has begun his senior season and has started lining up official visits.
“Popsey is having a great season so far,” East Central coach Travis Hill said. “He has offers on the table from Kansas State and Tulsa right now. Those are the only two schools that have come forward with an offer.
“He is getting a lot of inquiries. He says he has gotten several calls at home from coaches, but he hasn’t been there to get most of them.”
The list of schools that have spoken to Hill about the 6-foot, 222-pound Floyd in addition to the two who have offered include Utah, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.
“They’ve all said they are keeping an eye on him this year. They haven’t offered him yet, but I think some of them will come through with their offers when they get a chance to see more of him on film.”
The film of the three-star rated Floyd in action has been limited this season.
“He only played one quarter in our first game,” Hill said. “We got ahead and we pulled him out. He didn’t get many chances in that game because we got up so quickly. In week two, he played very good. But, last week, the other team went away from him as much as they could. He did everything he was supposed to. He stayed in his position and wasn’t out of place. He just didn’t get the tackle chances.”
Floyd has visited Tulsa unofficially this fall for a game, but that is the only trip he has taken.
“I know he is trying to get to a few games this fall to see some of the teams play,” the coach said. “He has an official visit set with Kansas State for sometime in October. I know they have three home games that month, but I don’t remember which one Popsey was going to.”
