FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Four-star linebacker Jermaine Love has it narrowed down to three schools, but a decision timeframe is very much up in the air.
After fighting stomach flu and getting on the practice field Sunday afternoon for the first time, the 5-foot-11, 220-pound Love is ready to get in sync with his teammates. The Offense-Defense All-American Bowl practices aren't the only thing on his mind. After narrowing his list of schools to three, Love says that he's still thinking about announcing at the game this Thursday on ESPNU.
"Right now, it's between Arkansas, Nebraska, and Arizona," Love said. "I'm really thinking about it. This is a hard decision because I like them all. There is only one me though and I can only go one place."
Love says the idea of committing this week at the All-American Bowl is something he's thought about. He's already made several official visits and has officially eliminated Texas A&M, Iowa State, Kansas State, Texas Tech, and others.
Love broke down what he likes about each school.
"Arkansas, I like them because I fit in their system and I feel comfortable around their players," Love said. "Nebraska has really, really good academics. I just love the fans at Arizona and the support there."
Now that Love has fought off his stomach flu, he's looking forward to putting in the work to win the game for the West.
"We're just working on playing together as a team," Love said. "If we can do that, we're going to beat the East. That's the key."
Love is rated as the nation's No. 14 outside linebacker prospect and a member of the Rivals250.
