Outlaw 'loving the process'

Receiving over 20 offers is nothing to scoff at, and Martin Luther King offensive lineman Josh Outlaw is approaching two dozen before the end of his junior year.

The star lineman is being recruiting by almost every school in the southeast, and, even at this early stage, Outlaw is loving the recruiting process.

"Everything is going good," said Outlaw. "The visits are fun and just having the opportunity is great."

At 6-foot-4, 290 pounds, Outlaw already has a body that is ready for the college ranks, and some of the top schools in the SEC are in hot pursuit.

The three star prospects has taken visits to Florida and Georgia so far, but plans on taking visits to plenty of other schools as the summer get close.

"I want to get out to Arkansas and I want to definitely see Tennessee," said Outlaw. "I want to go up and see Virginia Tech and Clemson too. I'm pretty much going to be on the move for awhile and seeing as many places as I can."

Despite his interest in other schools, a great deal of the buzz around Outlaw centers around border rivals Georgia and Florida.

According to the MLK standout, neither school is considered a leader, but both are on his mind.

"I am definitely considering Florida. They are a school that is in the running for my services. I want to get to Florida in the spring and I'll definitely do that, but I don't really have a favorite right now. I want to get up to Florida for their Friday Night Lights thing," he said. "I also want to get up to Georgia more. I'll be there this summer because my team goes there every year. I also had a great time at Dawg Night last year with a couple of my teammates there with Kenderius Whitehead and Blake Tibbs. I'm not positive I'll be there again this year, but I think I will be."

Outlaw made the trip to Athens on March 2 with teammate and 2014 defensive back Wesley Green for the day to spend time with the Georgia staff.

According to Outlaw, the visit was quite impressive.

"It was a great visit and we had a good time," he said. "Wesley Green got offered by Georgia that day and we got a chance to see the meeting rooms and the locker room. The food was excellent and it really stood out. We got to see a lot and had a good time. I really like Georgia and pretty much always have."

Naming a favorite is something that Outlaw isn't quite ready to do at this point, and there is no hurry due to the fact that he National Signing Day is approximately 10 months away.

Although he is taking it easy and enjoying the process, the Peach State lineman does have a plan on how his recruitment will shake out.

"I want to have a top group named at some point soon," he said. "I'm not sure when, but I want to do that. I'm not going to make a decision or anything until I take my visits and really see as much as I can. I know I can't see it all and there are limits, but I want to see as much as I can and get as much info as possible."
