Texarkana (Texas) Texas running back Korey Sutton has been on the phone a lot in the last week.
"I've gotten a lot of calls," the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Sutton said. "The first day we had three call and then steady after that."
The first three were Arkansas, Missouri and Louisiana Tech. Others included Tulsa and Ole Miss.

"Arkansas, Missouri and Louisiana Tech all called to kind of let me know they were thinking about me," the three-star rated all-purpose back said. "They wanted me to know the scholarship offers were still out there for me if I wanted to come play for them."
The newcomer to Sutton's suitors is Ole Miss.
"I had not heard anything from Ole Miss until they called me," he said. "I had a girlfriend who went to school down there. I went down for a game there last fall and got a chance to meet the coaches. They were telling me they needed a running back and that I could be their guy. But, that was the last I heard from them until last week when they called."
While we were visiting with Sutton, a call came in from the Colorado coaching staff.
"I told them I was on with Rivals," Sutton said. "So, he told me he would call back in a little bit. The coach said to tell Rivals that Colorado really likes me as a running back."
Sutton doesn't have a favorite among the schools he has offers from.
"I really don't have a favorite. Texas is at the top, but they haven't offered me. I've always liked them. But, if they don't offer me a scholarship, it would be tough to go there."
Sutton has gotten his season off to a good start.
"We are going good. We are 2-0. We beat Arkansas High, kind of our rival, 31-12. I had 12 carries for 103 yards, Friday. That was my first game. I didn't play the first game. I had an ankle injury. I was cleared to play but I didn't play because it wasn't really necessary. The other team knew about my ankle injury and could have targeted it and hurt it more."
