"I know it keeps changing and it will continue to change. But, right now it's USC, LSU, Oklahoma, Miami, and Texas Tech."
With scholarship offers also coming from numerous other Big 12 programs, Toliver says that as he talks to different coaches, his favorites change.
"Texas Tech, they pass the ball and you have to like that," Toliver said. "Miami has always been one of my favorites because they're always had a good program. Oklahoma has a young quarterback and I feel like I could fit into that offense. LSU is where my uncle went, so that's why they're there.
"Plus I feel really good about that coaching staff at LSU."
As for the Trojans, Toliver says he's not only struck up a relationship with coach Carroll, but his recruiter Ken Norton Jr..
"Coach Norton is a good dude," he said. "I've been talking with him for a while and he gets real excited when he talks with me on the phone."
Toliver says he's already thinking about an official visit his fall to get out to the West Coast to see what the Trojans have to offer. First will be unofficial visits and the talented Texan says LSU is the first team on his mind.
"That's one I know for sure I'm going to visit," he said. "They've been talking to my coach and we're going to try get out there this summer."
All the while, the talented young man is finishing up spring football and trying to squash all the rumors.
"Oh man, I hear them all the time," he said. "First, I heard that someone was reporting I committed to Texas A&M. That's not true. I'm trying to tell everyone that I'm not committed to anyone.
"It gets out of control sometimes."
