Vero Beach (Fla.) Sebastian River defensive end Jamil Paris recently received a call from Ohio State coach Jim Tressel. Paris has a visit scheduled with the Buckeyes and may soon schedule one to another Big Ten school.
"Coach Tressel called last week," Paris said. "He talked about my official visit there Dec. 9. He said he has to evaluate some more film on me with their other coaches. My coach is supposed to send some out."
Paris' decision is likely to come down to the Big Ten versus the SEC.
"I visit Kentucky Dec. 2," Paris said. "Then Ohio State. Minnesota might be the weekend after Ohio State. Florida should be in January.
"Out of those four Kentucky has offered me a scholarship. Minnesota wants to get film, then offer me as soon as possible."
When asked if he has a favorite, Paris said, "Florida and Ohio State are my top two."
The 6-foot-5 and 215-pound Paris also has a scholarship offer from Florida Atlantic, though he is not really considering FAU.
Paris is the No. 14 weakside defensive end prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 50 prospect in the state of Florida.
