Talented Defender Still Weighing His Options

This defensive prospect talks about the recruiting process and where he was over the weekend.

Pensacola, Fla.--Jon Demps has ties to a number of colleges, but says that he is having a tough time trying to make a decision among his five finalists, which are Auburn, Florida, LSU, Florida State and Miami.

"No, not really," Demps says about any of his final five choices standing out over the others. "Everybody is just even."

The 6-4, 228 middle linebacker took a weekend off from official visits, but did make a trip to Baton Rouge for an unofficial visit to LSU. "It went good," he says. "We were just hanging out with the players and stuff. I didn't really do anything other than that, but just chill with my brother (Willie Demps) and stuff."

Demps, who is scheduled to take his fifth and final official visit to Florida next weekend, also notes that he got an in-home visit from Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville recently. "Yeah, it was last week," he explains. "It was good. They came in and told me what the situation was and it was a good situation."

The standout defender, who was visited by Tuberville and his area recruiting coach Steve Ensminger, says that both he and his parents enjoyed their meeting with both of the coaches. "Yeah, I liked them and my parents got a long with them good and they liked the overall program," Demps notes.

Unlike many heavily recruited prospects, Demps explains that he is still enjoying the recruiting process. "Not yet, no and I have just got one more week," he says about being tired of recruiting.
