Comments - Once again, Thornton High School is loaded with talent. One prospect that has skyrocketed up the recruiting boards this past month is defensive end Tim Jamison.
I had the chance to meet Jamison at the Iowa spring game and he definitely passed the eye-ball test.
"Right now, Northwestern is my only scholarship offer," said Jamison.
"I'm hearing from Iowa, Illinois, Penn State, Indiana, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Kansas State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Northern Illinois and Cincinnati.
"My favorites are Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois, Indiana and Northern Illinois. I'm in no hurry to make a decision. I'm going to wait until after the season to make a commitment."
Jamison had 12 sacks as a junior. He also letters in basketball and baseball.
