ESPN 300 athlete Will Likely III (Belle Glade, Fla./Glades Central) started his busy month with 'The Opening' and will finish it as part of the Southeast Team at Gridiron Kings.
In between the 5-foot-7, 172-pound senior will start looking around. Likely admits he has seen much, his only visit was to LSU and the Tigers have always been mentioned as a favorite for him. That might not be far from the truth but Likely wants to make it clear that his recruitment is still open.
"I like LSU a lot and I had a great time on my visit there," Likely said. "But it was my only visit so far so I don't have a lot to compare it to. I need to check out a few more programs in the next few weeks."
Likely's visits could be limited to in-state programs and he hasn't put together a schedule yet. A visit to Florida, however, appears to be in the cards.
"There's a good chance I'll get out to Friday Night Lights," Likely said. "I want to get back and see Gainesville."
Likely has offers from programs like Georgia, Miami, Clemson, Louisville, Stanford and Ole Miss. He will try to trim his list by the fall and plans on taking all five official visits. LSU will be one of his officials, after that it's up in the air.
"I will go back to LSU, I might want to go to Stanford too," Likely said. "I'm pretty open to what's out there."
