Lackawanna College (Scranton, Pa.) offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor announced a top six school, and he set four of his official visits as well.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pounder junior college prospect has Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Ohio State, UCLA and USC.

"It's in no order right now," he said. "I really trust the coaches that are in my top six and I have a really good relationship with them."

Since Eluemunor is on track to graduate in December and enroll in January, he is trying to make his official visits prior to the fall season.

"I'm going to UCLA on June 7 and then USC on June 17," he said. "I have Alabama July 17 and then Arkansas July 19, and then I'm trying to figure out when my last trip will be."

Eluemunor's list is a top six, and throughout the process he has kept his list fluid. But he said narrowing the focus of his recruitment was needed, but not as bad as he thought it would be.

"It was tough at first to decide which ones I wanted in my top six because I had all the schools recruiting me and I'm thankful for the schools recruiting me," he said. "But when it came down to it, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be because the schools all the schools I liked offered me."

He offered a thought on each school:

Alabama: "I like the coaches and they have a good reputation for producing really good offensive linemen, so I like them a lot. And I like the offensive line coach (Mario Cristobal) there a lot, too."

Arkansas: "The coaches have been recruiting me since they were at Wisconsin. Coach (Bret) Bielema was the first head coach to talk to me and have interest in me."

Ohio State: "I like coach (Urban) Meyer a lot and (offensive line) coach (Jim) Warinner, and I have a really good relationship with them. I like them a lot."

Ole Miss: "They're starting something down there and I like the coaches down there as well. I have a really good relationship with coach (Hugh) Freeze."

UCLA: "I like coach (Jim) Mora and (offensive line) coach (Adrian) Klemm a lot and I like what they have going on down there and I feel really good with their coaches."

USC: "They were my favorite school since I was introduced to American football. It's been a dream of mine to go to Southern California and see what USC is like, and see what's it's like there."
