With his junior season behind him, Jonathan Haden is ready to visit some prospective colleges.
The running back from Washington (D.C.) Friendship said he will visit Ohio State soon and is considering a visit to North Carolina as well.
"I'm very open-minded," the 5-foot-8, 180-pound prospect said. "I have seen North Carolina and I like them a lot. I just plan on getting to some schools so I can see how they are."
Haden recently picked up a scholarship offer from North Carolina State. He previously held scholarships from Ohio State and North Carolina. Several other schools have shown interest.
Clearly, Ohio State's play this season has helped elevate the Buckeyes in the minds of prospects, namely Haden. When asked about Ohio State's 12-0 season, Haden said, "They had a great season. And I love how they play."
Haden has plenty of ties to several parts of the country thanks to his brother's football career. Joe Haden played college football for Urban Meyer at Florida and is now a cornerback for the Cleveland Browns.
