Things are really getting busy in Jonathan Gimm’s recruitment. Offers are starting to multiply and he is trying to figure out what schools he plans on visiting this summer before making his decision. The Jayhawks have made the cut so far, but many schools are now starting to make their way up his list.
After spending some time in Iowa visiting family, Gimm found time to attend Iowa’s camp on Wednesday and the coaches seemed to be impressed with 6’3” 230 lbs TE.
“The coaches said I did a really good job and that they will be talking to me,” Gimm said.
Iowa seems to be a long way for the Houston resident, but distance doesn’t seem to be a problem for Gimm.
“My family is all from Iowa. I lived there for eight years so traveling away from home is fine,” Gimm added.
“Nebraska sent a letter to my house,” said Gimm on his suitors. “My mom just told me on the phone that they offered. Obviously, they are way up on my list now. I really hope to get there to visit.”
Gimm seems to be very pumped by receiving an offer from the Cornhuskers, but he still wants to be sure to visit many schools before making a decision.
“I have been to Iowa, but I want to visit Iowa State, Nebraska, Boise State, and I’ve been to Oklahoma already,” said Gimm. “I also want to visit Kansas and Louisiana Tech. I really want to make my decision by the end of the summer.”
Kansas is on Gimm’s list to visit, but since the Jayhawks offered, he hasn’t heard much from them for some reason.
“I like KU, and they have offered, but for some reason, I haven’t heard much from them since they did offer me,” added Gimm on the Jayhawks. “I really haven’t heard from them since I had spring ball at my high school. I do plan on making a visit there though.”
Three other Big XII south teams are in the mix too. Gimm went to both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State camps this summer. He enjoyed his time at both camps, but OU seems to have really stuck out to Gimm.
“The Oklahoma State coaches said they will keep in touch with me, but the OU coaches really liked me. I really like talking to Coach Stoops too. I would play H Back at OU, just like at Texas A&M,” said Gimm.
Gimm isn’t your typical pass receiving TE. He loves to get down and dirty in the trenches and loves to be physical with his opponent. At 230 lbs going into his senior year, Gimm has plenty of time to add another 5-7 pounds of muscle on before arriving at a campus next fall. Gimm is exactly the kind of TE that programs want to open holes in the running game and be a key outlet receiver to pick up first downs that keep drives alive. Wherever Gimm ends up, he will certainly bring his lunch pale attitude with him.
