Rivals100 to watch running back Josh Haden has made it clear from the get go that he would like to make an early decision. The 5-foot-7, 190-pounder out of Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly isn't exactly sure when he'll decide, however Haden knows which four schools are leading at this time.
"Right now I'm really focused on training for the upcoming combine," he said. "I'm planning to go to the New Jersey Nike Camp in March. After that, I'm looking to take in a couple one day camps, but I'm not sure which ones yet."
It at least appears his top four are likely to receive the camp visits over any other school.
"Florida is still standing out and are my favorite," he said. "I'm also really looking at Boston College, Ohio State and Virginia Tech strong too.
"I like Florida of course because my brother is there and I've visited twice already. He also tells me a lot about the program. Ohio State is a humungous school and I like the coaches. I also really like the coaches at Boston College. That's a school I definitely want to check out. I like the offense they are going to be running and I think I fit in with that which is great especially since they are losing two senior running backs.
"Finally, Virginia Tech is in the mix too. I haven't had a chance to check out their school, but that's a big thing I want to do to help me make my choice. Amongst the four, they haven't quite offered yet."
Meanwhile, Haden discussed when he'd like to make a decision.
"As far as when I want to decide, I don't really know. I do plan to make it before the season since I'm looking at graduating early."
