Many are wondering if any new team could crack the solid top five schools of Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville cornerback Ray Fisher and though that is still unclear, his top two are becoming more and more solid in the three-star cornerbacks mind.
Even with a solid group of favorites, visits have still yet to be scheduled for the 5-foot-8, 156-pound defensive back. However, that's because a pre-season injury has been the focus for Fisher and his family.
"I messed up my knee during a pre-season game on a cut I was making," Fisher said. "I'm going to be back probably the second or third game in the playoffs. I actually just tore a small part of the ACL and I could have played on it, but I just went ahead and had the surgery so I didn't risk anything."
The injury has not slowed up contact by the numerous schools who have offered Fisher including Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and several others. LSU is still part of his top two teams, but Iowa may be making a bit of a push to the front.
"LSU is kind of going back behind Iowa because it's been so hard to talk to them after what happened down there with the hurricane and stuff," Fisher said. "I haven't talked to coach (Bo) Pelini in a while."
"Iowa has always been there with me and they actually told me I could play wide receiver or corner at their camp. I looked at those guys and I said, I'll play wherever they want me."
His decision will also be something special. Fisher has promised his mom to do it on a special day.
"I'll decide on Christmas Day," Fisher said. "It's for my mom, like a present for her. I decided that like a month ago. She's just anxious now. That's mom – real anxious right now."
Fisher was looking at taking an official visit to Indiana on Oct. 8, but nothing has been official set. He's currently working on setting up other official visits.
