Rivals100 wide receiver Je'Ron Stokes out of Philadelphia (Pa.) Northeast is racking up offers. The 6-foot-1, 178-pounder holds over 20 scholarships now after landing four more this week.
"I just got offers from Oklahoma, West Virginia, Syracuse and Wisconsin," he said. "I'm up to 20-something now."
Stokes broke down his thoughts on the latest scholarships.

"Oklahoma is a great program, they are one of the top programs in the Big 12 every year. They produce great talent, NFL caliber players and then they are just a great team. They also have what I want to major in, engineering. I think they have eight different types of engineering programs, so it seems like a great academic tradition which is a plus."
"They have been at the top of the Big East every year for the past three years. They have a great new coach, I like the offense that they run. I talked to the coach a bit yesterday and he stressed how they need a wide receiver to stretch the field and on reverses. I'm pretty sure they'd use me in the slot. I'm glad I got a scholarship from them."
"I got a chance to talk to my recruiter from there and the head coach came down to my school. Syracuse has recruited great talent before like Donovan McNabb and Marvin Harrison. They seem real genuine like they are trying to turn the program back around. I've got to learn more about them as a program."
"I really don't know much about them. I talked to the coach yesterday and he seemed very genuine and sincere about using me in the offense. They have a good tight end and expressed how he's a big part of their offense, but he'll be gone in a few years. They need a big play guy like myself to come and make an impact on their program. I know they are a great academic school too."
Despite all the offers, no schools lead for the four-star prospect.
"I'm not really favoring anyone at the moment," he said. "I'm keeping it even, everybody is on the same level now. It's early, I want to take visits and then start narrowing things down. I'm taking it one day at a time trying to enjoy life outside of recruiting."
Stokes plans to take visits in the near future.
"This weekend I'm going to Maryland for indoor nationals," he said. "Then in April I'm going on a few more visits to some early schools that offered. This summer I'll be doing a lot more visits."
Stokes will be headed to Maryland for track. He plans to compete in the 60-meter hurdles and is ranked in the top 15 in the nation in that event.
