Cornerback Jamari McCollough is one of the best athletes in this year's class, so it's no surprise schools have been quick to offer in an attempt to influence him early. That doesn't mean he's in a rush to make a decision.
"To tell you the truth I've really been impressed with every coach I've talked to," said McCollough. "They'll all been very impressive and informative. Right now I'm keeping my options open. I have offers from Maryland, Connecticut, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Rutgers, Temple, Purdue and Ball State right now and I'm considering all of them."
