East No. 14 WR Jasiah Provillon made three Big Ten visits, talks to two ACC schools most

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Irvington (N.J.) High receiver Jasiah Provillon talks recent Big Ten visits, ACC interests.

Jasiah Provillon, the No 3 receiver in New Jersey's 2018 class, made a trio of Big Ten visits, but it is a pair of ACC schools in most contact with him the most.

The Irvington (N.J.) High standout added he was not in a hurry to make a decision after trips to Penn StateMichigan State and Michigan.

"I speak to Louisville a lot, NC State from time to time," Provillon said. "I don't over talk to any schools."


In Louisville, Provillon sees a fit in the offense, but he does not know much about the school, or the city.

"They can't wait for me to come to campus so I can see what they have to offer," the 6-foot-2, 177-pound Provillon said. "I can't wait to go. I am trying to go the end of June. It sounds incredible."

NC State moved into New Jersey in the last few classes in recruiting, and it began with receiver Kelvin Harmon in the 2016 class. Offensive lineman Joshua Fedd-Jackson and linebacker Louis Acceus signed with NC State in February, and Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek quarterback Devin Leary is committed to the Wolfpack.

The next Garden State prospect on the list could be Provillon.

"I talk to coach (George) McDonald, the receivers coach, a lot," he said. "We're just building a relationship right now. He tells me I could play early, and I believe him because Kelvin Harmon went there and played a lot as a true freshman. They are recruiting New Jersey a lot. Having (Leary) makes a good impact."

Provillon wants to get to campus soon, but no date is set.

Meanwhile, he spent his spring break visiting a trio of Big Ten schools, and it started with Penn State.

"I saw a spring practice and there was a bunch of energy" Provillon said. "It was high tempo and a lot of yelling. (The coaches) were busy coaching the practice, but I spoke to (receivers) coach (Josh) Gattis during the practice. He was telling me about the offense, and what they were doing during the period when they were scrimmaging."

After the visit to Penn State, he and several other North Jersey prospects -- 2019 standouts Ronnie Hickman and Nyquee Hawkins were with him -- headed to Michigan State.

"Brand new facilities. Everything was new and it was real nice," Provillon said. "I didn't expect that. They took us around campus and we saw a lot. I enjoyed it."

From there, it was off to Michigan, where he watched the spring game.

"I saw a lot of crazy people, 80,000 at a spring game," he said. "With Michigan, I (think of the) Jordan brand, a lot of great athletes, Jabrill Peppers, of course. Just great football, period. It was a busy day so I didn't get much time to speak with the staff."
