"My interest is to get back down there and learn more about the campus," he said. "I don't know too much about them, so I want to sit down with an academic advisor and get back down there for a game. Of course, an offer has to be in place."
One offer that is in place is from the Florida Gators. Although there's a lot miles between his home and Gainesville, Valdez has a lot of interest in Urban Meyer's program.
"I have no preference, I'm just looking for the best fit," Showers replied when asked about distance factoring into his decision. "I went to check out Gainesville around June 16. It was beautiful down there. The coaching staff was great, the campus was great, and the academics were great. "
