Will Mouton Visit Tucson?

The nation's no.4 safety prospect, Jonas Mouton, from Venice HS in Venice, California is beginning to narrow his list. He recently took his first trip to Nebraska and has one lined up for Michigan this weekend. That means three official trips remain for the blue-chipper and Arizona is one of five to six schools competing for the chance to host him.

Jonas Mouton visited Lincoln over the weekend and rated the trip a '9' on a scale from 1-10. "It was great," he responded when asked how the trip to Nebraska faired. "I liked the people and it was a nice place."

He will head to Ann Arbor this weekend to watch the Wolverines take on Notre Dame. After that, things get blurry. Mouton insists that all of the schools recruiting him see him as a safety. His favorites list has changed a little. "I like Michigan, USC, Nebraska, Arizona, LSU, Oregon, Cal, and Tennessee. Tennessee just recently offered me. I am visiting Michigan this weekend and then I need to figure out my other visits. I am still not sure if I will use one of them on going to USC, or not, since they are so close."

One thing helping the LSU Tigers is the fact that Mouton's father resides in the Pelican State. "My father lives in Kaplan and I know he would like to see me go to college out there."

The safety claims LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, and USC are currently recruiting the hardest. He also says that just about everyone that has offered him has called since the month began.

Arizona is one of those schools. "I talked to both Stoops. I like Arizona for a few reasons. I know they need safeties there and from what the coaches tell me if I can come in and compete, and I could play early. That is something I want to do."

Venice gets their season underway Friday night versus Carson and Mouton has some goals set for his senior year. "I don't have too many individual goals. All of my goals are team-oriented. I want us to win a city championship."

He will be playing many positions for his squad; receiver, tight end, h-back, linebacker, cornerback, and safety. "I will be starting at safety and see a lot of time at receiver. Those are the two main positions I will play. Then I will line up other places some times."

Mouton will most likely take all his visits before deciding.
