Pascagoula's Eaton to announce college choice Wednesday

Posted by PATRICK MAGEE on February 3, 2014 

Pascagoula receiver Matthew Eaton will announce Wednesday where he plans to attend college, and he has his options down to a group of three.

Eaton will choose among Temple, Appalachian State and Arkansas State with Temple and Appalachian State the leaders in the group.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Eaton made a trip to Temple in Philadelphia over the weekend and came away excited about the experience.

“I've been doing a lot of research and thinking and praying about it,” Eaton said. “That visit (to Temple) really changed my whole outlook on recruiting and schools.”

Eaton has a sister who lives in Philadelphia and he said Monday that enjoyed the big city environment.

Eaton has received nine Division I scholarship offers, also including Navy, Louisiana-Monroe and Miami-Ohio.
