"I have offers from Miami, Georgia and Maryland right now," Jessie Hester said.
Who has made his top 5 to this point?
"I like Miami number 1, Georgia number 2, Pittsburgh number 3, Maryland number 4 and Ohio State number 5."
Why are the Canes out front right now?
"I have built a good relation with their coaches and everbody over there. It's close to home also."
What stands out about the remaining programs on his list?
Georgia: "My friend Sean Bailey goes there and he tells me a lot of good things about Georgia."
Pittsburgh: "When I talked to their coach he seemed really interested even though they haven't offered me yet."
Maryland: "They are signing three WR's and the coach said the ones they are signing will have a good chance to start right away."
Ohio State: "I just want to go up there and see what it's like. I haven't been there."
What is Hester looking for most in the school of his choice?
"I just want to find a good school, but I know that first year will be tough. I want a place that has the major I decide in as well. Distance ain't really a factor."
Where will Jessie be camping this summer?
"I'm going to Miami's camp on the 12th. I'll be at Florida State and Georgia also."
What is he doing this offseason to keep himself sharp?
"I'm working out four to five days a week. I'm just running a lot of routes and improving my conditioning."
Does Hester have a target date for a final decision?
"I want to decide on national signing day. I'm going to take all five of my visits."
