Top East RB Haden has offers nationwide

By Dave Hooker

Running back Jonathan Haden is up to eight scholarship offers thanks to schools from the Big 12, SEC and Pac-12.

In the last two weeks, the Watch List prospect from Washington (D.C.) Friendship said he has picked up scholarship offers from West Virginia, Kentucky and Arizona. When asked if any stood out, the 5-foot-8, 180-pound prospect stated via text message, "All of them."

Haden already held scholarship offers North Carolina, North Carolina State and Ohio State. He also has scholarship offers from some smaller schools, such as Old Dominion and Ohio.

There's reason to think the Buckeyes would be a good fit. Haden's older brother, Joe Haden, is a defensive back for the nearby Cleveland Browns after a standout career at Florida.
