Madaris Down to Five

There are just five schools remaining in the race for Ohio wide receiver Monty Madaris. He just recently took his first official visit and is hoping to have his decision out of the way very soon.

Four-star wide receiver Monty Madaris out of Moeller (OH) High School has trimmed his list of schools down to five. After months of contemplating, the teams that made his final cut are Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Kentucky and Florida State.

Madaris took his first official visit to East Lansing to see the Michigan State program this past weekend and he plans on taking official visits to each of the schools in his final five before reaching a decision.

He will have his first opportunity to compare visits this weekend, as he will take his official to Cincinnati, where he is hoping to find out more about the Bearcat program.

"Ultimately, I just want to go to the school that I feel the most comfortable at," Madaris said. "I want to see how the receivers are at Cincinnati, what their personalities are like and talk to their coaches a little bit more to see how they would use me in their offense. I also just want to find out about the school in general and their graduation rate."

This will not be Madaris' first trip to Cincinnati, however. As a hometown prospect, Madaris has been to the UC campus many times in the past, including taking a trip to Nippert Stadium to watch the Bearcat's regular season finale against UConn.

"I went there for their game against UConn. They've been good and I've been seeing how they want to win. I would love to be around all of the people that UC has around and that helps when they are recruiting me. The fact that they are a hometown team helps too."

Madaris registered over 1,000 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns as a senior, and he is hoping that he will know where he will be taking his talents in the very near future.

"I am going to go wherever I feel the most comfortable at. Hopefully I will know that by next month and, if not, then I will know by Signing Day."
