Boston College, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, USC, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin have currently extended offers to the four-star running back.
"As of right now I only took two visits and that was to Pittsburgh and Rutgers," Jameel Poteat said. "I'm going on more in May and this summer but on those visits the coaches and players showed my family and I a lot of love. I was in different meetings and just got to see if I went to their school what an average day will be like. Future trips I have coming up are Florida, USC, Washington and Cincinnati.
"All the schools that have offered and are showing a lot of interest and I have good relationships with their coaches that's where I will be. Really all the schools that offered are showing a lot of interest it's just about me narrowing them down and the schools are coming in the spring so I can go from there and that will help me narrow them down."
Poteat talked about his last year of high school football and what kind of player he is.
"This year we will have a lot of younger guys do to the big time receivers we had last year going off to play D-1 football and some of the guys on defense doing the same but we have a lot of young talent and I trust them. But for my part I just have to lead them and lead by example I know the ball will be in my hands a lot and my coach has a lot of trust in me so I won't let him down. But if we keep doing all the things we are doing in the weight room and on the field we will have a great season. Plus, my body guards this year are really big and they will open up a lot of holes for me to make something happen.
"My strengths as a player are I can run through you, around you, and by you. I'm in such a great offense and I know different schemes my coach teaches me a lot of stuff the NFL guys are doing as in blocking and running and I am good out the back field and can run good routes. I played running back since I was six so that's what I want to play and I'm getting recruited as.
"What I have that makes me unique as a back is my vision and I can do different things while I'm at running back. I can motion and catch a pass, I just bring more than one thing to my game. To move on and be great I just need to be a better student of the game."
Poteat has yet to visit Gainesville but it's a school he is looking forward to visiting.
"Florida is a great school and has a real good tradition going on and they have a great coach. I am looking forward to taking a visit and learning more about them."
