Fort Scott stars set trips

Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College coach Jeff Sims is a busy man these days.
Not only is he helping his team prepare for the Heart of Texas Bowl on Dec. 6, he's also working hard at lining up official visits for many of his top targets.
And at the top of the most wanted list with college coaches is four-star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder is ranked as the nation's No. 6 junior college player and Sims said many schools have started to step up their interest now the season is wrapping up.
"Jason is visiting Georgia on Dec. 12," Sims said. "He had has been offered visits at Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Arizona and USF. He's also already taken a visit to Nebraska back in September."
Pierre-Paul recently was named first-team all-conference after racking up 58 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss and 9 ½ sacks. He recorded 49 tackles and 14 sacks last season at College of the Canyons and is originally from Broward County.
The other big-time defender on the Greyhound roster is linebacker Jacquain Williams. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder is ranked as the No. 23 player in the nation. He also visited Nebraska in early September, but Sims said Oklahoma State and USF will get visits for sure and Arkansas has also offered him in addition to the earlier offers from UAB, Nebraska, South Florida and USF.
Along the defensive line, three-star defensive tackle Horace Hubbard is also getting heavy interest. Sims said Arizona and Oklahoma State will host him on visits in December. Three-star receiver Brandon Kinnie is still also uncommitted. Arkansas is the other school he plans to visit after also visiting Nebraska.
Fort Scott already has several players committed, including three-star linebacker Tony Charles to North Texas, four-star cornerback Coryell Judie to Texas A&M and three-star kicker Derek Helton to LSU.
Another three-star prospect, receiver Nick Adams, recently visited North Texas and is still looking at UAB and Akron.
