A brilliant junior season out of the way, Easterling has become one of the more heavily recruited prospects in the southeast and one of the top overall prospects in Florida. Holding more than a handful of scholarship offers in hand, including one from the hometown Miami Hurricanes, Easterling is also hearing from a Big East school that landed one of Easterling's teammates last year: Rutgers.
