Florissant (Mo.) Hazelwood Central running back A.J. Jimmerson is considered one of the top players in the state of Missouri – if not the top player in the Show Me State. If you have any doubts, just look at two impressive scholarship offers that he already has on the table.
Jimmerson, who is 5-foot-11 and 203 pounds, already has scholarship offers from Kansas State and Missouri. He’s also already getting heavy attention from Michigan, Southern Cal, UCLA and Wisconsin.
"One player is not going to take him down. He runs extremely hard and thinks well on his feet," Hazelwood Central coach John Pukala said.

Jimmerson earned second-team all-metro honors in St. Louis, but did rack up first-team all-state and all-conference honors after he rushed for 1,445 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also had 33 receptions for 536 yards and four touchdowns.
“I’m a hard runner,” Jimmerson said. “I’ve got quick feet and find the open hole and then hit it.”
Jimmerson lists both Kansas State and Missouri as his top two teams. He plans to camp this summer at Missouri, Kansas State and will be at the Iowa City Nike Training Camp.
