A prospect on the rise from south Florida is A.J. Sebastiano. Sebastiano, from North Broward, Florida, is one of the top receivers from the Sunshine State. Last season for Coconut Creek High School he hauled in 59 passes for 1,075 yards and nine touchdowns. Teams now are starting to pay attention to this 6-1 and 185 pound wideout. This weekend he will make his first unofficial visit of the spring.
"I am going up to Florida this weekend with some of my coaches and two other players," Sebastiano said. "We are going to the Orange and Blue game. I have been talking with coach (Nick) Azzani and he seems pretty excited about me. He wanted to come up and meet me. It's all good signs from Florida but they have not offered. I know they only take the best and I don't think they are wasting my time or theirs. We'll see what happens. I think I stand a pretty a good chance (of an offer)."
With Florida on the visit docket this weekend he will then head north for two more visits on the following two weekends.
"I go to Boston College on the 17th to watch a spring practice. My sister lives in New York City and we will drive to BC from there. I am anxious to see their campus and take a tour.
"On the 23rd I am going to Ohio State with Jeremy Cash and Wayne Lyons. We are going to their spring game.
"I want to get to know them (coaches) and see those schools. That's the first round. Then I have SATs on 31st and 1st and then spring football starts. After spring game and exams I will get to all the camps and stuff. I will be very proactive. I need to be."
According to Sebastiano there are a handful of schools that are heavily recruiting him but none have offered him at this point.
Boston College, Florida, South Carolina, East Carolina, Wake Forest, and Illinois are the main schools right now. I am talking with those coaches and having good conversations. These schools have said good things to me and want me to come see them. They are coming to see me this spring. It seems pretty serious with those schools.
