One of the more explosive running backs in the 2014 class is Jonathan Haden. The Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy recruit who is putting up ridiculous numbers, has offers from two BCS teams and is generating a lot of interest from other big-name schools.
"I have offers from Ohio State and North Carolina and I'm in contact with Florida, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Oregon and Florida State," said the 5-foot-8, 190-pound Haden. "I got the Ohio State offer this summer and the North Carolina offer not too long ago."
What kind of contact has Haden had with these schools?
"I like North Carolina a lot," he said. "The camps, stadium and everything looks great. I like Ohio State a lot too. I talk to those coaches every week. I like Oregon, Notre Dame and Florida a whole lot also.
"This year I went to the Florida vs. LSU game and it was a really nice experience," said Haden. "The crowd and everything was pretty great."
Haden is the youngest of four brothers that went on to play college football, Joe Haden, Josh Haden and Jordan Haden. The eldest Haden, Joe, was an All-American at Florida and was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft. Josh went to Boston College before transferring to Toledo and, like his oldest brother, Jordan went to Florida then transferred to Toledo with Josh.
The youngest Haden is still trying to enjoy the recruiting process. He is working on planning when and where his next visits will be.
