Outlaw has offers, but no leaders yet

As the offers continue to pour in for Joshua Outlaw of Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King, the standout offensive lineman has yet to name any favorites.
"Honestly, I'm pretty open," Outlaw told Rivals.com. "I just want to see the pros and cons of each school."
Arkansas, Kentucky and Louisville are among the latest schools to pull the trigger on the 6-feet-4, 270-pounder, who recently competed in the Georgia Junior Bowl after helping lead his squad to a strong playoff run. Alabama's Nick Saban is one of many coaches that have visited MLK in 2012.
"A lot of schools have been by," Outlaw said. "There has been so many I just can't name them all."
Already this year, Outlaw has visited Alabama and South Carolina. The Gamecocks were the first program to offer, doing so when Outlaw was a sophomore.
"I really enjoyed South Carolina," Outlaw said. "I enjoyed Coach [Steve] Spurrier and his staff. That would be one of the schools I consider. I always enjoy watching them play. Coach Spurrier is building a power. I'm looking forward to seeing what more they have to offer."
What's next for Outlaw?
"I'm going to Florida on the 18th," he said. "This spring, I'm going to Clemson and Georgia. That's all I have scheduled right now."
Outlaw could play either guard or tackle in college. At MLK, he's a tackle. He said it doesn't really matter which position he plays in college. To him, there are other more important factors.
"Definitely early playing time," Outlaw said. "Also, what's the best place for me for the next four years. The coaching staff and the relationship I have with them. And my major. I want to major in mass communication. I want to go into sports broadcasting."
