Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central running back Jewell Hampton ran for just 513 yards and four touchdowns as a junior backing up all-everything tailback Darren Evans. In limited duty, the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder averaged over 10-yards a carry and that has resulted in some serious interest from recruiters.
"I'm getting interest from Louisville, Iowa, Cincinnati and Purdue," he said. "Those are the major schools showing interest."
One school Hampton hopes to hear from in the future is Ohio State.
"I really like their program and the offense they run," he said. "They way they run the running back and utilize the passing game are great."
With a variety of interest already coming in, what does the Indianapolis star want out of a college?
"I don't know really, I want a good program and a certain type of offense," he said. "I want a good learning experience and I'd like to stay in the Midwest. I do like Darren a lot though and he's like a big brother to me. Going out to Virginia Tech would be great too if I could go and be with him."
