Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna running back Xavier Stinson currently has three programs in his top three.
"The recruiting process is going really well for me," the 5-foot-8, 214-pounder said. "My current top three are Pittsburgh, Auburn and Tennessee."
Stinson said all three schools have offered him a scholarship.
"The two that have been recruiting me the hardest are Pittsburgh and Auburn," he said. "Tennessee offered about two months ago."
Stinson plans to check out the Tigers and Panthers this summer and will attend Auburn's prospect camp on July 15.
"We're planning on going to Pitt and to Auburn for an unofficial visit," he said. "I'll be going to Auburn's camp on July 15 with several of my teammates."
Stinson talked about what he specifically liked about each of his favorites.
"I talked to Pittsburgh and they said that I can step right in and play as a true freshman," Stinson said. "With Auburn and Tennessee, I like the offense."
Stinson is being recruited as a running back by all three schools. He projects as a tailback, but could possibly play fullback as well.
There are several factors that will play a part in Stinson's final decision.
"Academics are the most important thing," he said. "My mom and I are real big on academics. Secondary, of course, is the football program."
Stinson does not know when he will make a final decision.
"It all depends on how I feel," he said. "If I want to commit early, I may do it."
Stinson rushed for 930 yards and 15 touchdowns a year ago and also is a standout linebacker for his team.
