Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood running back Maurice Wells has taken three official visits so far with one remaining for the athlete rated the nation's No. 66 football recruit by Rivals100.com.
"It's pretty much three teams in the mix," said the 5-foot-9, 177-pounder. "I really liked my visit to Ohio State and I've always liked Georgia Tech. I take a visit to Tech on Dec. 10. I am also considering USC because they could win it all this year and it's a great program."
Maryland is the only school Wells has visited that seems out of the picture.

"They're coming in Wednesday for a visit, but I like the others better right now," he said. "Georgia Tech was here Monday and Ohio State is coming Thursday. Coach Tressel from OSU is set for an in-home on Dec. 8. I'm not sure when USC is coming."
Wells was thinking about a fifth visit, but has pretty much ruled that out for now.
"I could change my mind, but I doubt it," he said. "I will probably announce at the US Army All-American Bowl."
Wells had his best time on his visit to OSU so it seems Georgia Tech has something to live up to.
"OSU was a great visit, I thought a little about committing, but I don't want to do that without seeing Georgia Tech again," he said. "I'm looking for the right fit and someplace I can make an impact."
Wells might go to the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 21 in Orlando and might also check out the Gator Bowl, although he's not considering Florida State or West Virginia.
"Just to see some games," he said. "They're close enough to home."
