One of the top junior college prospects in the country is Hutchinson CC defensive end Jeremiah Ledbetter. He has offers from the likes of Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Miami, South Alabama, and others.
He recently named a list of his top three schools to Scout.com. Arkansas, Florida, and Miami made his group of favorites in no particular order, and he recently took visits to each of the three.
Ledbetter's first stop was in Gainesville to get a look at the Gators' program.
"They showed me how I fit in and what I would do within their defensive scheme," he pointed out about Florida. "They explained how they would use me and what my role would be. I feel very comfortable with their plan. I think I would fit in well with their defense."
The four-star lineman was in Coral Gables not long ago, a visit he had been planning for some time.
"They've been coming at me pretty hard, recently," Ledbetter noted about Miami. "They hit me up quite a bit, too. They talk to me a lot to see how I am doing."
Arkansas also made his list and he was there last weekend for an official visit.
"The visit to Arkansas went great," Ledbetter told Scout. "It was great how they showed my parents and myself everything about the school such as academics, facilities, and what their vision for the future is. They showed me how I could make an impact right away with their program and how I'm needed."
Ledbetter knows when he will make his college decision.
"I will make my commitment once I visit Florida during the season," he stated. "I'll be ready to choose after that trip."
