"Ohio State, Georgia Tech and USC are my top 3 schools. I'm also looking at Notre Dame, Maryland and Michigan," Maurice Wells said.
What stands out about those 3 schools?
Ohio State: "They always show me a lot of love. They came down from Ohio to visit my school."
Georgia Tech: "I like their coaching staff a lot and they were the first team to offer me. I've been there alot for practices and unofficial visits."
Southern Cal: "Pete Carroll was the first coach to call me on May 1st and they came out from California to visit my school also."
What is most important for Wells in finding a team?
"It's when I'm going to be able to play. I know I definitely can play early at Georgia Tech. They have a senior RB this year and they look for RB's in my style."
Have the in-state schools picked up their pursuit of the Jacksonville standout?
"I get a lot of hand-written mail from Florida. Coach Zook came down to my school. I get a little bit from Florida State too. Miami offered me but then they've never sent me any mail at all."
This cross-country recruiting war could go deep into January.
