Cameron Tom has been pursued by Southern Miss for many months. After a weekend visit, it is now time for him to make his final decision.
"I enjoyed the visit a lot," he said. "We toured the facilities and got to hang out with the players. I enjoyed the basketball game as well."
Tom was hosted by fellow Louisiana native Jalen Richard.
"I didn't know him before the weekend, but I really enjoyed getting to know him," he added.
Tom had a good time getting to know some new coaches, but there were two that really stood out to him.
"I've known Coach Perot for a while," he said. "He's meant a lot to me as I've gone along. Also I enjoy talking with Coach Monken. He's a great coach and a great guy."
Tom said this week will be the time when he makes his final decision. "Sometime before the weekend I'll make my decision between Louisiana Tech and Southern Miss," he added.
He wouldn't lead on to which way he was leaning.
