Jamison talks about his Rutgers visit

The 5-foot-8, 195-pound running back from The Bolles School (Jacksonville, Fla.) just finished his official visit to Rutgers, and talked about what transpired on it and where his recruitment stands. He has a visit to South Carolina set for next weekend, and there is a new school in the mix, but will he end his recruitment early and committ or take it to the end?

Perhaps before a visit to South Carolina next weekend, The Bolles School (Jacksonville, Fla.) running back Jawan Jamison will make a decision on his college future.

However, coming out of his official visit to Rutgers on Sunday, he was not ready to pull the trigger and commit anywhere.

"No, sir. Not right now,'' the 5-foot-8, 195-pound Jamison said. "Right now I have either one or two more visits. I'm going to visit South Carolina, and I think Wake Forest wants me to visit, too.

"My mom and I need to sit down this week, and then I was going to wait until after the South Carolina visit. My mom and I talked about it a little bit, but we really need to sit down and talk about it.''

Wake Forest is a semi-new entrant in the situation, and Jamison is uncertain how much he will consider the Demon Deacons.

He visited Northern Illinois last weekend, and will head to South Carolina next week. Whether he can, or wants to, shoe-horn in a visit to Wake Forest before signing day is undecided.

But Jamison did leave open the possibility of committing to a school before he heads to South Carolina, but isn't sure where he would commit.

"I don't know because I like Rutgers a lot, and I like South Carolina a lot,'' Jamison said. "I didn't really like Wake because they didn't have confidence in me, but now they have confidence in me, so I need to talk about that with my mom. And I have a friend (safety Desmond Cooper) going to Wake already from my team.

"Northern Illinois is still in it. When I went up there, I liked this lady, Ms. Francene. She was like my mom away from home.''

At Rutgers, Jamison was hosted by receiver Mason Robinson.

In addition to the tour of campus, the academic presentations and the tours of the football facilities, Jamison experienced in a few other things, including going rollerblading.

Jamison also got a chance to see new Rutgers receivers coach P.J. Fleck for a second straight week. Fleck was just hired from Northern Illinois.

"We went to the ESPN in New York and we went to a couple other places,'' Jamison said. "We got a chance to go around and meet people, other players and people on the campus. "I liked everything. It was nice. I liked the academics, I liked the coaches. It was real structured, real close and like everyone was together. It's a good school all-around.''

Jamison said all four of the schools are slated to stop by The Bolles School this week.
