Jean-Louis has a leader

Amongst the top South Florida prospects to participate in this weekend's Miami Nike Football Training Camp was Wellington (Fla.) Palm Beach Central athlete Angelo Jean-Louis. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete enjoyed the experience, and dabbled in a bit of action on both sides of the ball.
"The Nike Camp was real good. There was a lot of good competition out there," Jean-Louis said. "I worked mainly at wide receiver but I did a few things at defensive back. I think in college I am definitely a wide receiver but I am also pretty good at corner. So it depends on where I end up going to with where I play."
At this point, Jean-Louis claims around 15 offers including Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas Tech, USC, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia.
Last season, he made his way to a top-tier game at one of the in-state schools.
"I have been to Florida," Jean-Louis said. "I went to Florida for their game against LSU. The Swamp is a real impressive place. It was really loud the whole entire game even though they lost. The crowd is really good."
In addition to his visit to Florida, Jean-Louis also was able to see Miami last season. The Hurricanes, who have undergone a staff overhaul since he last saw them, are in regular contact.
"I actually talked to Coach (Brennan) Carroll like two days ago," Jean-Louis said. "We talked for about 20 to 30 minutes. He talked about how they want me to come up there and how they really want me to be a 'Cane. That is my number one school right now so we have really been keeping in contact."
He explained why Al Golden and company are currently in the lead for his services.
"It is close to home and it is the whole Reggie Wayne and the other great wide receivers that have gone there," Jean-Louis said. "The whole background of the school interests me. All the great players that have played there, guys like Michael Irvin, they always have great receivers. It is always exciting to watch the 'U' because something exciting is always happening in their games."
Jean-Louis hasn't shut the door on other schools vying for his services. He talked about the others that help to make up his lead group.
"In competition with the 'Canes would be Florida, Ohio State, and USC," Jean-Louis said. "This summer I have two trips planned for Ohio State and USC."
As for a final decision, he intends to have it by the time his summer wraps up.
"I will definitely decide by the time my season starts," Jean-Louis said.
