A.J. Sebastiano is a wide receiver prospect from south Florida that is starting to make some noise in the recruiting world. Sebastiano, 6-1 and 187 pounds, is from North Broward Coconut Creek High School. Last season as a junior he caught 59 receptions for 1m075 yards and nine scores last season. Defensively playing safety he intercepted six passes and returned three for touchdowns.
"My strong points are my route running and I make the catch," Sebastiano said. "You have to look past forty times. I run crisp routes to get separation and I can catch ball. I can go up and get it to. I know I need to work on my speed and gain a little more agility and quickness. I want to make game changing catches and get into endzone."
Although Sebastiano doesn't currently have any scholarship offers teams could be getting close. "Boston College, USF, Western Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana are all recruiting him hard.
"I don't have any offers and I am really working on trying to get offers. But really, everything for me is just starting now. I am in more contact with schools and hopefully get offered soon."
Last year Sebastiano went to both Ohio State and N.C. State with former teammate, Brandon Doughty.
"I will have a busy summer schedule. I am going back to Ohio State. I would like to stop by BC and Illinois. I am going to camp at Florida, Tennessee, BC, and Illinos. I know I will talk with some other schools and may want to see them. That's it for now. It's early and my name is just getting on the map. I am getting those first looks by a lot of schools."
While Sebastiano is looking to gain some offers there is one school out there that trumps all others.
"Ohio State is my favorite school. I grew up in Youngstown and moved to Florida when I was 12. It would be a dream come true if they offer. I grew up a huge Buckeye fan. That's where my heart is.
"If it's not Ohio State it's okay. I am looking for atmosphere at the school and facilities. I want to find a place to work hard and get to a big bowl game. I want to find coaches that want to get their players better and win. I am very competitive and want to play but know I need to work on my game and on my weaker points."
