According to Tyreece Jiles, he is on fire with college recruiters. After starting with an offer from Wake Forest he qickly added Duke, Kentucky, and North Carolina. Since that time, Jiles claims that Indiana, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee, Nebraska, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Minnesota, Central Florida, Illinois, and Western Kentucky have offered.
"I think I have around 14 or 15 now," Jiles said of his offer list. "They are all basically good schools with good academic programs, so nobody is really standing out yet. I have been looking into each of them individually. Like Nebraska has a good engineering program, Wake Forest is towards the top of my list, North Carolina is also real nice, and Duke is a high prestige school. So I need to keep learning about each and every one so I can separate them from one another."

Jiles has yet to take visits, but does intend to utilize all of the official visits at his disposal.
"I know I am going to have to narrow it down," Jiles said. "I plan to take my five official visits. So I am going to narrow it down and see which schools I am most interested in."
The 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback wants to build relationships with the coaches at each university, amongst other factors.
"I'm going to look for the coaches that I think I can get along the best with and work with," Jiles said. "I am also looking for good academic programs. I also want to be a part of a great team with high prestige. I want to have a chance to do something during my college career. I'd like to play early on. Distance isn't a factor, neither is the weather, it is just going to be about the coaches, the people, and how the school is in general that will help form my decision."
At this point, he claims no leaders amongst his offers.
"They are all basically the same area of interest right now," Jiles said. "Wake Forest, North Carolina, Maryland, Nebraska, Purdue, Duke, Kentucky, Illinois - all of them I have high interest for. But they are basically all the same, I have to learn more about all of them before I can make any decisions."
