Ryan Timmons is being heavily courted by several programs with scholarship offers in hand. When you see Timmons play, the first thing that comes to mind is likely speed. But that's not necessarily what his coach Chris Tracy sees.
"I think his biggest strength is his versatility," said Tracy. "He can line up at running back, play wide receiver and on special teams as a kick returner or a punt returner. He sees the field real well. He sees blocks setting up and those types of things. Very seldom do you see him hemmed up."
One thing that could hem Timmons up is his college decision. There are a number of schools involved and Tracy says he doesn't think he has a favorite.
"California and Missouri just came in last week. Florida has jumped on board since the New Year. Then there's Kentucky and Ohio State. He hasn't said he has a favorite," said Tracy. "He knows that playing at Florida or Ohio State he could play for a national title."
"I don't think he knows (where he wants to go). He's going to have to make all his visits and really weigh things out. One of our assistant coaches wrote down a series of questions for him to ask on each visit to help him figure out what he wants," Tracy continued.
One of those official visits will be this weekend, when he visits his home-state Kentucky Wildcats.
"I talked with coach Stoops for about 40 minutes on the phone when he was hired. I think he's got things going in the right direction," finished Tracy.
Franklin County was 12-1 this year. Timmons lead his team in rushing and receiving. He rushed for 1260 yards and 25 touchdowns. He caught 29 passes for 970 yards and 17 more scores. Timmons had 101 total touches on offense and accounted for 2230 yards and 42 touchdowns.
