When recruiters make their annual stops to the Kansas City area in the month of May, Blue Springs High School is always a guaranteed stop. This year, there will be up to three prospects receiving divison one looks, including defensive lineman Jaron Baston.

"Right now, he doesn't have any offers, but he is getting a lot of looks from Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas State, and Kansas," said his father, Vernon."

Baston could play multiple positions on defense in college from linebacker to defensive end or even defensive tackle.

"I think that is what a lot of schools like so much about Jaron. We took a junior day visit to Missouri, and they let us know he was one of their top in-state defensive prospects they had on their board."

Baston has also made a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska, and has another planned.

"We took in a junior day visit there a few weeks back and spoke briefly with their linebacker coach. They invited us back up on April 17th for their spring game, and we are planning on attending."

Lastly, Mr. Baston noted there were plans to attend a junior day at Kansas State, but that visit will be re-scheduled for a later date.
