JCFootball.com Recruiting Blog - 12/11

We continue to update things with some of the top JUCO prospects in the country including commitments, rumors of visits to and interest from four-year schools...

Copiah-Lincoln LB Jordan Harris - Harris was one of the top tacklers in the nation, posting 124 stops (to go along with 3.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles-for-loss) made his decision recently when he committed to Iowa State over offers from the likes of Arkansas State, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, North Texas, South Alabama, Southern Miss and Tulane. He will enroll in January and will have three years to play two starting in the fall of 2014.

Tyler LB Larry Thomas - Thomas is an emerging prospect who had a solid season for the Apaches, totaling 44 tackles, four sacks, four tackles-for-loss and one fumble recovery. He currently holds offers from Houston, Middle Tennessee and Midwestern State and he's been seeing interest from UTSA as well.

Tyler S Kenny Iloka - Iloka had a huge season for the Apaches, leading the nation in tackles with 126 to go along with 3.5 sacks, eight pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble and he received First Team All-SWJCFC honors for his efforts. He's seen recruiting really pick up since their season concluded, hauling in offers from Memphis, SMU, TCU and Texas Tech and receiving a lot of interest from other Big 12 and some Big Ten programs. He's definitely a player whose stock has skyrocketed over the past couple of months and his visits will go a long way in helping him make his decision.

Arizona Western OT Jordan Prestwood - Prestwood wasn't a name we heard much about during the spring and summer, but once we got a look at the 6'6", 305-pounder, it's not hard to see why schools have been falling over themselves trying to get him to commit. He's got offers from the likes of Auburn, Florida State, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, California and San Diego and he's got a slough of other programs after him as well. He's already taken two official visits -- Auburn on 11/16 and Kentucky on 11/30. He's a mid-year prospect, so he'll be making his decision very soon.

College of San Mateo OT Haniteli Lousi - Lousi's stock blew up this year with a huge season opposite All-American Dominick Jackson. He drew offers from programs across the country, but on Monday he decided to commit to Oregon, choosing the Ducks because of their openings along the offensive line.

Riverside OT Dominique Robertson - We'll be catching up with Robertson soon, but the last time we checked in on him he had six offers -- Arizona, Arizona State, Fresno State, Washington State, Texas Tech and Kansas State -- and he was receiving interest from a handful of other programs. He has yet to take visits, so it will be interesting to see when he plans to make his decision.

Riverside WR Sam Boyd - Boyd had a solid season for the Tigers before he got injured, hauling in 26 receptions for 442 yards and four touchdowns in just six games. He sports offers from Washington State, Fresno State, California and Indiana, which he visited last weekend, and had Arizona State after him, but it appears to Sun Devils have backed off. The former San Jose State bounceback is a player to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.

ASA DE Torey Hendrick - The big-time pass-rusher finished with 6.5 sacks, 24 tackles and 14 tackles-for-loss and he's explosiveness off the edge has garnered him offers from the likes of Arizona State, Florida State, Kansas, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Rutgers, Iowa, Troy and West Virginia. He will visit the Hawkeyes this weekend and Mississippi State on January 24th.

New Mexico Military DE Edmond Boateng - Boateng appears to be leaning toward Arizona State, but he's yet to make his decision. In addition to his most recent offer from the Sun Devils, the talented defensive end totaled has pulled in full rides from Arizona, Iowa State, Miami and West Virginia as well.

Palomar TE Sam Browning - Browning only played in seven games, but still managed to finish second on the Comets with 29 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns. It sounds like he's been hearing from a couple of schools, but nothing serious has taken place on the recruiting front.
