One Visit Down, Schedules A Second

New Brunswick (NJ) linebacker Jonathan Casillas

New Brunswick (NJ) linebacker Jonathan Casillas (6-2, 200, 4.4) has the size and strength to be a college linebacker. He also runs a 4.4, which makes him a safety prospect as well. Casillas has garnered offers from Connecticut, Duke, Akron, Wisconsin, and Illinois.

"Some schools like me as an OLB and some like me as a safety," said Casillas

Casillas has tallied 8 sacks for the Zebras this season. Last year he was named 2nd team All-Area, and 2nd team All- League (Blue Division) after he recorded 85 tackles, and 12 sacks.

Casillas is focused currently on three schools Illinois, Wisconsin, and Connecticut. Back on (9/11) he took an official visit to Illinois. He will take his second official visit in December.

"I'm heading to Wisconsin on (12/10)."

Casillas has also attracted recent interest from Virginia, Iowa, Kentucky, and Boston College.
