Cincinnati (Ohio) La Salle three-star cornerback Jaleel Hytchye had started to pare his list of offers and identify some favorites at the beginning of the season, but with the time for official visits drawing near the 5-foot-11, 165-pound cornerback is seeing new interest come his way.
"I'm trying to keep an open mind, to be honest," Hytchye said. "I'm not ready to commit to one particular school yet. I think it is best for me to just go on my official visits and see what school has the most to offer."
Last month, Hytchye named Pitt, Northwestern and Arizona State has his top three, followed by Kentucky and Cincinnati.

"The top three or top five I named earlier are still high on my list, I just need to get back down to those campuses," Hytchye said. "If anyone new comes along, maybe I'll get down to see one of those campuses too."
New teams are starting to emerge for Hytchye. As teams start to wind down their class of 2013 recruiting and look at some needs yet to be filled, several are taking interest in the speedy Cincinnati defender.
"Wisconsin, they have been talking to me a lot recently," Hytchye said. "Penn State offered right before the Moeller game and one of the Georgia coaches just friended me on Facebook."
Hytchye has yet to set any of his five official visits, and he is leaving time for teams to take a look at him this fall before he sets his schedule.
"The season is wrapping up and I am trying to wait until the season is over to get that squared away," Hytchye said.
Unofficial visits have been made to both Cincinnati and Kentucky this fall. He attended the Bearcats home opener against Pitt, and most recently saw Kentucky play Western Kentucky.
"Kentucky lost, but it was a good game," Hytchye said. "It went into overtime and they beat them on a double-screen pass, so it was a pretty exciting game."
Hytchye has helped La Salle get out to a 4-3 record, with their two most recent losses coming to nationally ranked Moeller and St. Xavier. Hytchye has totaled two interceptions on the season, including one he returned for a touchdown.
