2014 running back Jamauri Bogan of Union, N.J. has pieced together two memorable seasons so far and now is eager to get back on the field to further prove his worth. During the off-season Bogan picked up several offers and is receiving interest from top programs from across the country, but a recent coaching change at his school may be slowing down his process.
"It's slow for me as of now, because of a coaching change," said Bogan. "My head coach is on a leave of absence."
With communication slowed because of the coaching change at his school, Bogan has focused his time on preparing for his junior season. In the meantime he continues to hold offers and gain more interest.
"I'm still at five offers, but I haven't checked mail in about a month so it could possibly be more," said Bogan, who has offers from Georgia Tech, Temple, Massachusetts, Toledo and Old Dominion.
Bogan hopes to hit the road for several visits this fall.
"Hopefully I get a few invites and I'll be there," said Bogan. "I'd like to visit Georgia Tech, Temple, Ohio State, Pitt, North Carolina and Maryland."
Bogan and his teammates begin their season on September 7th against Bridgewater-Raritan.
"Preparation is going great," said Bogan. "I've worked on understanding what defenses are doing, and I improved my cutting, speed and strength."
The dynamic junior has a few goals in mind for this fall.
"Winning a state championship anyway possible is one goal," he said. "I also want to go over 1,500 yards again and score more than 27 touchdowns."
