Jersey RB has Louisville offer

With Louisville bound for BCS inclusion and the Big East Conference it has become quite clear that the coaching staff has set it's sights on portions of the northeast. New Jersey running back Jahre Cheeseman is the latest to receive an offer from Bobby Petrino and staff.

Jahre Cheeseman of Eastern High School in Voorhees, New Jersey can add his name to those in the northeast portion of the country that the Big East bound Louisville coaching staff has extended a scholarship offer too.

As a junior last fall, Cheeseman put together an impressive season, rushing for 1,444 yards and 20 touchdowns on just 180 carries, a per carry average of 8.02 yards. Couple his elusiveness with 4.38 speed and it quickly becomes clear why he is racking up some impressive scholarship offers.

"Virginia, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Rutgers, Michigan State, Syracuse, Connecticut and Duke have offered me," said Cheeseman on Tuesday evening.

However, despite the impressive offers, Cheeseman is focusing on improving for his senior season and recently returned from Miami's camp.

"I did pretty good," Cheeseman explained. "It was good to go up against a bunch of different players from around the country."

Also a good student (3.2/1130) Cheeseman hopes to narrow his list of schools to five before the kickoff of his senior season.

"Right now I have no preference really," continued Cheeseman. "I'm waiting to narrow things down with my coach before the season and then take my official visits. I'll probably commit after the season is over."
