Three-star wide receiver Ishmael Hyman of Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney has decided to slow things down after his recent visit to Georgia for a camp. With plenty of options on the table, Hyman is confident that more offers will come his way this fall.
"Things have been going great over the last month, because the recruiting process slowed down," said Hyman, who is 6-foot-0 and 169-pounds. "Now I can just focus on my high school team so we're ready for this upcoming season. I did go to Georgia though and competed in the Dawg Night."
While Georgia has yet to offer Hyman, the Bulldogs have always been a dream offer for the Jersey Shore receiver.

"It was an awesome experience," he said. "Their campus is beautiful and their facilities are state of the art. The coaching staff was also nice and I had a chance to talk to pretty much all of them. I hung out with the players and they were cool."
Despite not returning home with an offer, Hyman is still optimistic.
"Well I did really good at the Dawg Night Camp and they said that I opened a lot of eyes, so they were going to all sit together as a staff when they all get back from their little vacations," said Hyman. "Then they'll let me know."
Hyman already has several offers and mentioned that Rutgers, Purdue, Kansas, Boston College and Old Dominion are currently recruiting him the hardest. He also believes more offers may be on the way, as schools like Clemson, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Georgia, and UCF have shown continued interest.
As he now concentrates on his upcoming season, Hyman may also take a local visit this summer.
"The only place I'll go again over the summer is Rutgers because it's so close to my house, but I definitely plan on taking some official visits," he said. "I'll probably visit Purdue, Old Dominion, Rutgers and Georgia, if they offer me. I don't know about the last one. I think I'm going to get a whole bunch of offers when my senior season gets going so that list may change."
Hyman has a general idea of when he would like to end his recruiting process.
"During my senior season, but I don't want to rush into anything though," he said.
Finally, Hyman discussed his preparation for his upcoming senior season.
"It is going great," he said. "We should make a big run into the playoffs this year. This could be the best team my school has had. We have so much talent."
