Offensive lineman Jamarco Jones (Chicago/De La Salle) has been racking up the offers, but classmate and 2014 running back Mikale Wilbon has been turning heads as well. Wilbon has only an offer from Purdue, but plenty of schools have recently inquired about the shifty running back.

"Ohio State has been in contact a lot, Michigan State, Arizona State, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, USC, Cincinnati and Indiana have all been in contact," he said. "Michigan was in contact with me, but it hasn't been as much as the other schools yet."
