Recruiting: Pierre-Paul Does Talking On Field

One of the top defensive line prospects in all of junior college football is Jason Pierre-Paul of Fort Scott Community College in Kansas. The 6-5, 270-pound Pierre-Paul is a first team All-Jayhawk Conference selection and will be All-Region and likely a multiple All-American.

Thus far this season he has 10.5 sacks with nine solos on sacks for 50 yards in losses. He also had 18.5 tackles for loss and 18 of those were unassisted for 76 yards in losses. He was the Jayhawk Conference Defensive Player of the Week in week six with 10 unassisted tackles, one assist, two tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, a fumble caused, and a fumble recovered. Fort Scott lost to Hutchinson 30-17 in the Jayhawk Conference semifinals last week. They will finish the season in the Northstar Bowl in Rochester, Minn., on Nov. 22.

The Deerfield Beach, Fla., native has a lot of attention with Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, South Florida, LSU, and Virginia Tech listed as schools that are in on Pierre-Paul. The big defensive lineman has little to say on recruiting.

"Nothing much," said Pierre-Paul when asked what was going on in recruiting. "I don't know (what schools are recruiting him), my coach really knows all of that. I'm just looking forward to the bowl game in Minnesota."

Asked if there were any schools he was looking forward to visiting, he said, "not really."

He did confirm that he will be a mid-term graduate and will be available to transfer for the spring semester.

"My coach has all the information and knows what is going on," repeated Pierre-Paul.

Fort Scott head coach Jeff Sims has a good relationship with Oklahoma State, and it was Sims that recruited current Cowboy Lucien Antoine to Fort Scott from Florida -- the same path that Pierre-Paul has taken. His next move maybe only Sims knows right now.
