Three-star offensive center Bobby Billingsley out of Memphis (Tenn.) Memphis East is focused on three schools. The 6-foot-2, 273-pounder is also planning to make a decision in the not too distant future.
"I just narrowed down my decision and hopefully I'll be committing in the next two weeks," he said. "Right now I'm looking at Texas Tech, Memphis and Middle Tennessee State."
Billingsley claims offers from all three finalists.
So, what sticks out about the trio?
Texas Tech: "I just like that they have great tradition. The game day atmosphere down there is good and I have a good relationship with the coaches. I've been talking to their quarterback commit Davis Webb. He seems cool. I haven't visited yet, but I'm talking to the coaches and I know a lot about the school. I plan on going up there before the summer is over with. I plan to schedule the visit this week."
Memphis: "I like that Memphis is my hometown school. The opportunity to stay close to my family and friends is good. The opportunity to play early is nice too."
Middle Tennessee State: "Middle Tennessee is the opportunity to play early. I have a good relationship with the coaching staff. They could really use me as a freshman coming in."
Though he confirmed he's focused on the three finalists, he is not ruling out other possibilities if offers come in.
Meanwhile, Billingsley is considering a trip to Middle Tennessee State as well sometime before a decision is made. He discussed a possible timetable for his final decision.
"It really doesn't matter," he said. "I can say it'll likely be by the first weekend of the season, so it may be a month at the most."
