Offers are mounting for one of the premier receivers in the country. Rivals100 wide receiver Je'Ron Stokes out of Philadelphia (Pa.) Northeast gained four more offers recently. Now the No. 34 prospect in the country is up to 16 offers.
"On Monday night I just got another offer from Tennessee," he said. "I also got offers from Maryland, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt recently."
Stokes discussed each of the recent offers a bit more.
Tennessee: "I've been down to Tennessee during my freshman year. I went with my pastor and his son Mark Jones who played there and now plays for the Tampa Bay Bucs. I got to meet Coach Fulmer, tour the facilities and talk to the players. It was lovely down there. I even did the Vol walk. I really enjoyed myself and now that they offered that makes me happy about it. I've got to research the academics and things like that though. They definitely stick out a bit because I've seen the facilities and know they are in a great conference."
Maryland: "Every year I run indoor nationals at Maryland, but I haven't had much of a chance to see much of their facilities. From what I know, they are lovely and I've talked to their receivers coach a couple times. He expressed how interested they are in me and they are in a great conference as well."
Texas Tech: "I know if I go there I'll catch 80 balls a year which is lovely. I could be used well in their offense. Coach Riley is recruiting me there. I'm researching them, but I could see myself there."
Vanderbilt: "They have great academics and are on the rise. They are making a name for themselves. I'm excited about that offer as well."
Do any offers stick out right now for the four-star prospect?
"They are all about the same," he said. "At first when I started getting offers they were mostly from the Big Ten and I love the football tradition and history, but the SEC and ACC offers are pretty good as well. I enjoy all the conferences. It'll come down to the best decision for me."
Meanwhile, the Keystone State prospect is working on visits in the near future.
"I'm going down to Penn State for track and I'll do an unofficial there this weekend," he said. "Then next weekend I've got indoor nationals in track at Maryland and I'll probably go on an unofficial there. Then the rest of spring will be in April where I'll take visits to Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois, Iowa, NC State and maybe Clemson."
