More and more JUCO prospects are starting to schedule official visits to schools and several are taking unofficial visits to programs that have offered them. Here's a look at who is going where, who has recently been talking to different schools and some new prospects that are emerging as the summer moves along...

Mesa DL Claude Pelon - Pelon recently visited Washington and came away impressed. He plans to visit Seattle in late July and said he wants to set up an official visit for the week that the Huskies play Oregon. Pelon mentioned that Washington is his favorite right now, but that he still plans to visit USC this weekend and may take another couple of visits before the summer is complete.


Ventura OL Ralphie Martinez - His height will dictate he play inside, but Martinez has the ability to play either tackle or guard. He has seen early interest from schools like Fresno State, Georgia State, UNLV, Nevada and San Jose State, but he's still waiting on his first offer.


Cabrillo CB Brian Johnson - Johnson played for Foothill in 2011, but transferred last year to Cabrillo where he redshirted. This spring, while working out for the Seahawks, he received heavy interest from schools like California, Louisville, Colorado, North Texas, Oregon, USC and Western Kentucky. He's got the ability to lock down one side of the field and he is very quick to the ball. Wherever he winds up he should be an asset the moment he steps on the field.


West Los Angeles CB Chris Glover - Glover had an outstanding freshman season in 2011 for West L.A., posting 19 tackles and two interceptions, but he had to sit out last year with a torn ACL. This year he's back to 100% and has early offers from UNLV and Eastern Michigan and has seen interest from the likes of California, Colorado, Colorado State, Utah State and Oregon State.


Southwest Mississippi CB Zavian Bingham - After a solid freshman season that saw him post 20 tackles for Mississippi Gulf Coast last fall, Bingham made the move to Southwest and already has two offers -- Troy and Wake Forest -- with schools like Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State and Southern Miss all showing heavy interest.


Independence TE Sean Mckissack - McKissack had a solid freshman season for the Pirates last fall, posting 20 receptions for 171 yards and two scores. He's big and athletic and he's got soft hands. McKissack already has an offer from Arkansas Pine-Bluff and he's got schools like Arkansas State, Baylor, Kansas, Bowling Green, Ohio and Middle Tennessee looking his way as well.


Blinn LB Keil Heidman - Heidman has been a bit under the radar this year because he mainly split time for most of the 2012 season, but this year he's expected to be one of the leaders of Blinn's defense. He's quick to the ball, has great instincts and he's got the strength to take on blockers while still being able to make the play on the ballcarrier.


College of San Mateo OT Dominick Jackson - Jackson made big news earlier this week when he decided to back out of his commitment to UCLA and opted to commit to Alabama instead. Make no mistake, the Crimson Tide are the definite leaders for Jackson in this one, but there are still a lot of twists and turns that will take place before a final decision is made.


Lackawanna OT Jermaine Eluemunor - Rumors are that UCLA may also lose Eluemunor to another school as well. He plans to visit Arkansas, Florida State and Alabama over the next month and could opt flip to one of those schools, most likely FSU, if he enjoys himself enough.


Snow S Dalton Brady - After a solid freshman season last fall that saw him post 16 tackles and an interception, Brady has drawn the attention of Utah, Utah State and BYU so far this year. He's got the ability to play in-the-box as a strong safety or in center field as a free safety, depending on scheme and need.
