Jean adds NC State to top five

Tight End Jamesley Jean (Ht: 6-5 Wt: 225 40: 4.65) from Tampa powerhouse Jefferson Senior High has added NC State to his top five. TSW caught up with Jamesley to get the latest.

NC State looks to be adding a Tight End to the mix of commitments and Jefferson's Jamesley Jean might well be the number one prospect on the Wolfpack board at the moment.

Jean brings a reputation as one of the top Tight Ends in talent rich Florida. He caught six touchdown passes as a senior and scored five times as a Junior.

We asked Jamesley about his current list. "Auburn, Oklahoma, LSU and Ohio State are there. Take Florida off. You can replace Indiana with NC State. I have been watching them and waiting to see if they would get interested. They contacted me and I am going up for a visit January 17th."

Jean has already taken visits to LSU and his most recent trip this past weekend was to Oklahoma. "Oklahoma was alright. I saw some things I liked." He is also scheduled to visit Ohio State January 10th.

State has had it's eyes on several 2003 Jefferson players including, WR Andre Caldwell (Ht: 6-2 Wt: 180 40: 4.39), RB Reshaun Grant (Ht: 5-11 Wt: 180 40: 4.35), DE Jonathan Bailes (Ht: 6-1 Wt: 315 40: 5.2) and OL Donnie Woods (Ht: 6-5 Wt: 290 40: 5.0). Two players pulled the trigger this week with Grant committing to Georgia Tech and Woods announcing for Maryland. NC State is the leader for Bailes who will visit January 10th. Caldwell is not listing the Wolfpack in his top five at the present.

While teammates Woods and Grant pulled the trigger, Jean seems content on taking his time. "I will take my visits before I decide. I think a couple of my teammates have already decided, but I will probably wait."

Fellow Tampa area player and NC State commit LeRue Rumph (6'2 213 4.5) from Central Catholic High School told TSW about the Jefferson players in a previous interview; "Those Jefferson guys can help. We get that group up there (Raleigh), I am talking ACC Championship, BCS and alot of things happening." He also said he was working on getting them on the plane when he heads to Raleigh for his official visit.

The Jefferson Dragons were defeated by Melbourne Palm Bay 19-10 at Doak Campbell Stadium last Thursday night in the Florida 4-A Championships. Jefferson closed out the season with a 13-2 record, and set a record for the most wins as well as advancing further than any Jefferson team in history.
