Posted in Football Class of '12, Football Class of '13 on January 24, 2012 by redshirtscouting

Louisiana ATH Jontrey Tillman will not be going to Stanford like he planned since last June. The Stanford coaches told him he wasn’t accepted. Jontrey, while disappointed, now has to look for a new school. reports Tillman having offers from SMU, Southern Miss, New Mexico, and Memphis. Tillman, who runs a 4.3, will probably pick up a few more offers now that he isn’t committed.

Class of ’13 Ohio Quarterback Malik Zaire recently stated he has a Top Three. Those are Nebraska, Pittsburgh, and the home state Ohio State Buckeyes. The Nebraska coaches compared Zaire to current star quarterback Taylor Martinez, however with a better arm. At 6’1″, 190 lbs, Zaire has an impressive arm. He is a lefty with a lot of potential. His video is linked below.

UCLA landed the commitment of talented defensive end Jeremy Castro. UCLA was Castro’s first scholarship offer, but it hasn’t been his favorite the whole time. He has spent time committed to both Washington and Oregon, but now plans to sign with the UCLA Bruins after an official visit to sunny L.A.¬†Castro has offers from big time programs like Oklahoma, LSU, and Boise State.

The Penn State Nittany Lions landed four more commitments yesterday. The most notable was New York running back Akeel Lynch. The, 6’1″, 205 lb Lynch has a good chance to be a star for the Nittany Lions, especially saying they still don’t have their head coach on the job. Lynch makes it seven commitments in the past week. The others include CB Da’Quan Davis, S Trevor Williams, WR Jonathan Warner, WR Malik Golden, LB Nyeem Wartman, and S Jordan Lucas.

The Top Corner Prospect in the Country for the Class of ’13 has committed to the Ohio State University.¬†

Cameron Burrows is a very talented cornerback with great size (6’2″, 190 lbs). He attends Trotwood-Madison High School in Trotwood, Ohio.

During an unofficial visit last month, while the team was in a bowl practice, Urban told current Buckeye players that he [Burrows] was the best cornerback in the country. This played a huge part in Burrows committing to Ohio State.
