Jayron Hosley is a super cornerback prospect from Delray Beach (Fla.) Atlantic High School. Hosley, 5-10 and 171 pounds, is a four-star recruit that also excels at wide receiver and returning kicks. Hosley is well respected in South Florida and the teams show that respect on the field. In two games only one ball has been thrown his way.
"It's been crazy so far," Hosley said. "In two games only one ball has been thrown my way and I batted it down. Teams are laying off my side and it can be frustrating to me because I want to make plays for my team. But we are game planning for that now. I am going to play more at safety and I will be blitzing more."
So far on the season Atlantic has beaten both Boca Raton and Palm Beach Lakes. This weekend they have a bye before taking on Treasure Coast next week. The off-week gives Hosley a free weekend and he will make his first official visit.

"I am going to Louisville this weekend. I leave on Friday. I am pretty excited because I have never been up there. I want to learn about school and the team. I know a few players up there from this area. I have watched the team a little bit and I talk with the coaches a lot. It sounds interesting up there and they need corners. I'm the guy they really want and they have stuck by me the entire time."
Although Louisville wasn't the first to offer Hosley, they offered early. The first team to offer him was the Georgia Bulldogs.
"I was surprised they were the first to offer. Actually, I was shocked. There is something about the Dawgs that I love. Mark Richt is a great coach and he has a lot of talent there. They are always good at corner and they always been a good program. There is no slacking off at Georgia and they stay on it hard."
Hosley says he would like to visit Georgia officially in October. He would also like to visit Clemson in October or November.
"I like the coaches up at Clemson. It's Bowden's son and he has that Bowden spirit in him. He's a very good coach and they always have a lot of talent. I didn't watch them much growing up but they have caught my eye the last few years."
Another team that has caught Hosley's eye is South Florida and he hopes to visit the Bulls in December or January.
"Jim Leavitt is a humble and a straight forward coach. He tells you what is what. The Bulls have been catching my eye lately. They are winning games and went to No. 2 last year. USF is getting recruits and playing good football. I love the DB coach (Troy Douglass) there. He's a very cool guy."
Hosley is a four-star recruit and a member of the Rivals250. If he does in fact visit Louisville, Clemson, Georgia and USF that would leave he with one remaining official visit.
"I am leaving that last visit open. Right now I have no favorites and I am not set on one school. I want to also see if a few more offers come in. Florida is still after me and Miami's still on me. FSU recruited me in the spring but not much lately."
