Derek Tyson/ESPN.comLong-time Gator commit James Hearns said Friday night after his high school game that he's considering taking an official visit to Ohio State.GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Judging by his game on Friday night you would never know that four-star linebacker James Hearns (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) is coming off a severe ACL injury from last season.
The 6-foot-3, 226-pound inside linebacker accounted for two interceptions, including one he returned for a 48-yard touchdown in Lincoln's 45-7 victory over Gainesville (Fla.) Buchholz. Hearns actually had a third interception negated by a penalty early in the game.
Though he appeared to be the most dominant player on the field Friday night, Hearns said there are parts of his game he still needs to improve on.
