Florida athlete has several options

Florida running back Josh Balloon is a hot item these days. With around ten offers, Balloon has his pick on which college he wants to attend. Balloon has already narrowed his list down to eight - including Wake Forest.

"I have about 10 scholarship offers," said defensive back Josh Balloon.

"Wisconsin, Ohio State, Purdue, Wake Forest, Boston College, Auburn, Indiana and Northwestern are the schools that I like the most.

"I don't have a leader right now. I'm wide open. I haven't set up any official visits either."

Balloon, a 6-foot, 207-pounder, from Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson is a four-year varsity starter that has played several different positions including running back, fullback, linebacker, defensive end and safety.

"Some schools want me as a running back, others like me as a safety or linebacker. It depends on which school I choose and the situation but I just want to get on the field as fast as possible." Balloon said.
