The city of Memphis is loaded in the 2012 class, with prospects in the double digits already committed to BCS programs. One of the top athletes in the area, Will Redmond (Memphis, Tenn./East) is being pursued by several prominent schools, and with good reason. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior this year threw for 241 yards and a touchdown, ran for 361 yards and eight touchdowns, caught 20 passes for 416 yards and four touchdowns, made 35 tackles and three interceptions on defense, and averaged almost 28 yards per kickoff return, with one return for a touchdown.

Redmond has committed to an SEC program, although that has not stopped schools from pursuing the three-star prospect. He maintains that it is a necessary evil in trying to find the best situation available.

“I committed to Mississippi State, but I want to take the time to think about it and be sure this is the right decision,” Redmond said. "It has been up and down, but it is something you only get to do once. It’s the only time you have head coaches from schools across the country come to your house. I also do not want to forgo my officials and later regret it. I might see something on my official that the other school did not have, so I just want to be 100 percent sure.”
