Reports on Jarred Fayson Not True Yet

Recent reports indicate that Illinois has already received a verbal from current Florida Gator Jarred Fayson. Today we caught up with his mother and she informed us here at InsideIllini.com what their stance is at this point.

Carla Powell is the mother of WR Jarred Fayson who is currently on the roster of the Florida Gators. It has been reported that he's already made an official announcement that he will be attending the University of Illinois. "No. I don't know where that came from. We haven't made any kind of commitment to Illinois or any of the other two schools that Jarred likes," said Powell. Mrs. Powell didn't deny that her son will be leaving the Gators and said he will pick between Illinois, West Virginia and Clemson.

We asked about the visit to Illinois and she responded, "It went really well; everything was nice. We're just going to lay everything all out on the table and make a decision sometime this week. Jarred needs to make sure he looks at all of his options," said Powell.

From sources close to the family, it appears that Jarred really likes Illinois, Ron Zook and the direction the program is going. "But as of right now, it's up in the air," stressed Powell.

Jarred attended Hillsborough Senior HS in Tampa (FL). When the news breaks on Jarred we plan to bring it to you here at InsideIllini.com. Coming out of high school he was a five-star recruit and the third best WR in the class of 2006.
