2013 Intro: Jeremiah April

Jeremiah April, a 2013 post prospect out of Arizona, is hearing from a number of schools across the country...

Jeremiah April, 6-10 JR C Phoenix (Ariz.) Joy Christian, is an intriguing prospect with a number of schools expressing interest in him.

I spoke with April's mother, Pamela April, recently and she gave me a list of schools that have been in touch with her son.

"Colorado, Illinois, Baylor, UTEP, New Mexico State, New Mexico, Iowa, West Virginia, Arizona, Arizona State, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Washington and USC are some of them," said April.

April said many of the schools have sent coaches to see her son work out recently at his school.

"Colorado, UTEP, New Mexico State, New Mexico, Arizona State, Oregon State and Washington have all sent coaches," said April.

When asked what factors would be important to her son when he picks a school, April said, "education is first – a good education at a reputable school. The location doesn't really matter. He's just looking for a good education most of all."

April has been to local school ASU for an unofficial visit, but has yet to visit any other schools.

I asked if there is any time frame for picking a school.

"I think we're going to wait and weigh all of our options," said April. "We don't want to rush into anything."

April said her son has a GPA of 3.5
