Wesley Jefferson Names Five

The latest on star LB Wesley Jefferson.

Gwynn Park, Maryland LB Wesley Jefferson is one of the primary targets on OSU's out-of-state radar this year.  He is currently rated as the #2 LB in America as well as one of the top 20 overall prospects, and if you combine that with the fact that he's a great student and person, he would be a wonderful addition to any recruiting class.  Are the Buckeyes still on the list? 

"I am not settled on my top 5 for sure, but right now it would be Maryland, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Miami and USC," Wesley said.  "That is who they would be if I had to make a decision right now, but that could change."

If a school is not in that top five though, it doesn't necessarily mean they aren't under consideration.  One such school is Tennessee.  "I will be visiting Tennessee on Sept. 6th," Wesley said.

Another school like that is Virginia, which is a school he just checked out. 

"I just got back from a visit to Virginia. They need LBs bad. They want me to play inside."

It seems like Wesley will go through the recruiting process.  "I will definitely take all 5 visits," he said.

Wesley is being recruited for OSU by Mark Dantonio.  He has offers from virtually every school you can think of.
