Top 2012 WR Checks Out Iowa City

Jehu Chesson already is making a name for himself as a prep junior with some top schools already jumping into the recruiting process. The 2012 WR from St. Louis traveled to Iowa City during the weekend to get a look at the Hawkeyes and came away impressed.

Jehu Chesson looks like he will be one of the top receiver recruits in the Midwest next year.

A silky smooth and athletic 6'3, 175-lber, he is hearing from many schools, but has not had a chance to take many visits.

"We have districts and playoffs coming up this week able to go last weekend because of a four day weekend and we had a game Friday night and the game was on Saturday, usually our games conflict."

The game Chesson was referring to was the Iowa-Wisconsin game which he saw over this weekend, his first unofficial visit and a thrilling one.

"That was nice," he said. "We got there Saturday morning. I got to bring two other people so my dad and a friend of mine, we went to the game. It's really nice. We toured the facilities. I liked it. It's a very nice school."

It was a chance for him to talk the Hawkeye coaches as well.

"I talked to one of the coaches, Eric Johnson, the tight ends coach and the recruiting coordinator for the St. Louis area. The head coach talked as group, but not individually. I talked to strength and fitness coach. He seemed like a very serious guy and gets a lot of work done, but is fun too."

Lately, the letters have been flooding Chesson's mailbox.

"Nebraska, Mississippi State, of course Iowa, and Wisconsin sent some stuff, Kansas State, a lot of schools sent mail, Alabama sent a few things."

With all of that interest, he is not narrowing anything down or closing himself off to anything.

"Right now, I'm very open. I'm excited to see what schools have to offer, but I can't narrow it down to a top three or anything like that. They all seem really good right now."
