Offensive tackle Jaryd Jones-Smith holds seven offers. The massive 6-foot-7, 300-pounder has been to a couple camps recently, and also plans to head out on a few more trips very soon.
"The only camps I've been to so far this summer are Penn State and Temple," he said. "Temple was this past weekend and it was hot, but good. I talked to the coaches and they got to see where I was in my recruiting. At Penn State, they didn't offer me. They told me they were done taking any more offensive tackles."
Currently, Jones-Smith holds offers from Arizona, NC State, Pittsburgh, Temple, Central Florida, Villanova and Virginia.

He added that he is trying to get out to other visits before the end of the summer.
"Actually, I was talking to my mom the other day about taking trips,"
he said. "I'm thinking about a couple trips in the next couple weeks.
We're supposed to be going to Pittsburgh on Friday and then we've got to work it out, but I want to visit UCF sometime soon. Most likely I'll have to use an official visit for Arizona."
The Philadelphia (Pa.) West Catholic prospect confirmed that he plans to take his official visits before a final decision is made.
Meanwhile, he emphasized that no school sticks out over the rest at this time.
"No, nobody stands out right now," he said. "I'm just looking for a school that'll help me reach my full potential as a player. I want a school with good academics, good tradition and a good atmosphere. I want to stay on the East Coast, I know that much."
Practice goes into full swing on August 13th for West Catholic.
"I just want to come out and do my best this year," he said. "I want to make the first team all-state honors both ways this year and just do the best I can to lead my team to a championship."
