Sutton still favors homestate school

Texarkana (Texas) Texas running back Korey Sutton continues to favor one school, but no scholarship offer has come his way.
“Really nothing has changed,” the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Sutton said. “It has been the same teams as earlier. No new offers have come.”
Sutton’s team began practicing last week in preparation for the 2003 season.
“We had a good week of two-a-days,” the three-star rated all-purpose back said. “I am expecting a lot out of me and my team. I wont make a commitment before the season starts and I will more than likely hold off until the season is over.”
One team continues to appear at the top of Sutton’s list.
“Texas is my favorite still,” he said. “But they haven’t offered me a scholarship. Arkansas and Missouri are right up there too. They hae offered me a scholarship.”
Sutton isn’t looking for a school close to home necessarily.
“It doesn’t matter where the school is,” he said. “I just want to find a place that I’m comfortable with.”
Sutton did attend the Texas football camp earlier this summer.
“I had a real good time at the Texas camp,” he said. “I got the chance to visit with Major Applewhite at the camp. I had a real good visit with him.”
Sutton believes his team can make it a long way during this season.
“I think we can go win state again,” he said. “We were projected as the No. 2 in the nation by one poll. So we have high hopes again for this season. Coach Norton says not to get ink poisoning while reading the papers. We are mature enough to not get big headed. It should be a lot of fun.”
