The recruiting process is starting to heat up for Madison (Wisc.) Memorial three-star wide receiver Jester Weah. The 6-foot-3, 197-pound Weah returned on Sunday from his first official visit of the process to Colorado State.
"It went real well and I had a great time out there," Weah said. "They are definitely going to be in my top group."
Jim McElwain just completed his first year as head coach of Colorado State, and Weah was interested to get his assessment of the direction of the program.
"I talked with the head coach and asked him why he left Alabama to come to Colorado State," Weah said. "I asked him where he sees the program a couple years from now, and he answered both my questions. I definitely see the program moving forward with all the improvements they are making right now. Everybody is focused on one goal, and that is getting better."
Colorado State is one of seven schools that have extended a scholarship offer to Weah, but that number could increase in the next two months.
"I have some schools contacting me that haven't offered yet - Pittsburgh, Iowa State, Illinois and Minnesota," Weah said. "I believe one of my coaches was talking with Pittsburgh and they want me to come in during the second weekend in January [for an official visit]."
Weah just came off an unofficial visit to Pittsburgh two weekends ago. He has not scheduled additional official visits, and has not timetable for making his college selection.
"It's just when it feels right," Weah said. "I want to take my time and don't want to rush anything."
This past season, Weah recorded 38 receptions for 799 yards and eight touchdowns. He is now in basketball season, though he had to miss his team's game Saturday night because he was on his Colorado State official visit.
