Ole Miss has impressed Eric Swinney, a top 2015 running back from the state of Georgia, and while it is still early, the Rebels have an edge over the others that have offered.
The Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek all-purpose back talked recruiting this week briefly and indicated that he has one favorite.
"Ole Miss is number one," Swinney said.
But he is not ruling others out. Cincinnati, Minnesota, North Carolina, NC State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin have also offered Swinney and he is keeping an open mind.
"This summer a couple of weeks ago I just came back from South Carolina and of course Tennessee," he said. "That's been pretty much it. I still plan on going to Auburn and Florida State.
"South Carolina was a beautiful campus. The coaching staff is really nice. I've gotta get up there more. Tennessee was my first offer so I still like them."
Last fall Swinney rushed for 1,420 yards on 151 carries and he scored 23 touchdowns.
