What is your interest? Some dojos stress different things, are you interested in Competition? Self defense? Personal improvemeent, fitness, weapon training?
Some dojos train all these aspects others touch upon them and stress one or the other. Shorin-ryu is a very diverse disclipne with a wide spectrum of interest.
Off hand I'd recommend the Eizo Shimabukuro Okinawan Karate in Texas and North Carolina or Sensei Doug Perry's Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Shorinkan Karate and Kobudo Dojo in in Hendersonville, NC.
There are a lot of good Shprin-ryu schools in the 3 areas you mentioned.
