Hytchye Updates Status

Cincinnati area defensive back Jaleel Hytchye of La Salle High has been hearing from plenty of heavy hitters. FOXSportsNext has the latest on which schools are after the talented corner.

2013 cornerback Jaleel Hytchye of La Salle High in Cincinnati, Ohio has seen his recruiting get off to a fast start.

"Recruiting is starting to pick up," Hytchye said. "I have been in contact with Northwestern, Michigan, Illinois, Penn State, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Indiana and a few more schools."

And the Cincinnati standout has several offers to show from the process already.

"I have three offers so far," Hytchye said. "From Kentucky, Kent State, and Western Kentucky."

And Hytchye has been busy making several visits.

"I have visited four schools so far," Hytchye said. "Including Michigan on Sunday, Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Michigan State."

Hytchye enjoyed his visit to Ann Arbor -- and came away impressed.

"They took me around campus," Hytchye said. "I got to meet with some of the coaches and an acedemic advisor."

He added, "I enjoyed it, and it was a good experience."

And Sunday's visit may be his last for a while.

"I know I wo'nt be able to set many more visits because of track season," Hytyche said.

The talented cornerback runs mainly the 400 and 800 meter runs for La Salle High. But speed endurance isn't his only strength.

"My press coverage and my man coverage ability plus my ball skills are my strengths," Hytchye said. "And this off-season I am working on improving my aggressiveness and turning my hips quicker."
