Arlington (Mass.) Arlington Catholic cornerback Jonathan Jean-Louis is a 2007 prospect who has yet to receive an offer. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder has received plenty of interest though.
"I'm getting interest from Boston College, Virginia, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and Duke," he said. "Of them I'd say Boston College, UVA and Georgia Tech are my favorites. I like that all of them have my major, sports medicine. I also like that they are all big schools for football and could potentially give me a chance to play my freshman year."
This season the cornerback prospect attended the Florida State-Boston College game.
"It was amazing there at Boston College. I got to go on the field before the game and it was a great experience as the fans were electric, they were behind the players," he said. "The atmosphere was really positive and this is the first year Boston College is in the ACC. You cold feel the hunger on the BC sideline that they wanted to show the world they can play. I'd definitely like to go back for another game, but it may be difficult with my schedule and games."
The sophomore league all-star grew up a fan of Miami.
"That could play a part in my decision if they were interested," he said. "I'd have to look heavily into their academic program because I'm going somewhere that has the total package. It can't be one without the other."
Arlington Catholic is off to a 0-3 start on the season, but Jean-Louis thinks that the team is headed in the right direction.
"We took a big leap forward when we played the No. 4 team in the area Catholic Memorial. The game came down to a yard and we ended up losing, but it was a great showing for our team," he said. "This season I've recorded 33 tackles, one interception and three touchdowns on offense. I'm not satisfied as I believe you can always improve on something. I'm looking to carry this team and I told my coaches that I will not accept losing anymore."
