Decision looming for 3-star OL

Fort Scott (Ks.) 2014 JUCO offensive guard Kareem Are has seen a rise in his recruitment over the past month. He has received offers from Florida State, Penn State, South Carolina, Ole Miss, and Kansas State and has taken official visits to the first three. Are was blown away by his visit to Florida State.

"It was a great visit," Are said. "I really enjoyed myself. The atmosphere was really nice." Florida State offensive guard Josue Matias was Are's host on his visit and they focused on the way the lines played.

"I think Florida State has one of the best offensive lines in the country," Are said. "So is their defensive line."

Are was very clear in what he is looking for in his future school.

"I am looking for a place where I can get a great education," Are said. "I want to go to a school that is good at football. A place where I can win a championship and a place that has a strength and conditioning coach that can develop me."

The 3-star offensive guard plans to early-enroll and plans to make a decision within the next two weeks. He is officially visiting South Carolina this week.
