Curie senior defensive end James Adeyanju (6-2, 250 pounds) has decided on the five schools he wants to visit this fall.
Adeyanju is planning to make official visits to Wisconsin (Sept. 16), Boston College (Oct. 1) and Nebraska (Oct. 15).
He announced over the weekend that he also is planning to take official visits to Northwestern and Illinois and will set up dates with the Wildcats and Illini soon.
Sleeper prospect of the Class of 2011: Look no further than Richmond-Burton senior quarterback Adam Pittser (6-1, 200 pounds).
Pittser went from an unknown prospect to one of the top quarterbacks in the country in just one spring and summer after showing his skills at several spring and summer camps. Pittser also was invited in July to the Elite 11 QB camp, which featured top signal callers from across the country.
Pittser, who has offers from several Mid-American Conference schools, is drawing more looks, including several from major FCS schools. He plans to take official visits before making a college decision.
Border switch: East St. Louis senior running back Anthony Pierson (5-11, 175 pounds) played his first game for the Flyers on Saturday.
Pierson, who transferred to East St. Louis from Gateway Tech in St. Louis this summer, rushed 16 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Flyers' 31-22 win against Indianapolis Cathedral.
He has orally committed to Missouri.
The ol' switcheroo: Very few coaches can claim to have sent as many prospects to colleges as Thornton's Bill Mosel.
Mosel's latest prospect is senior Charles Knowles (6-4, 185 pounds).
Knowles, who played receiver last fall for the Wildcats, has switched to quarterback this season. So far, so good. Knowles, who also is a standout on the Wildcats basketball team, passed for 159 yards and four touchdowns in Thornton's 55-0 win over Hillcrest on Saturday afternoon in Harvey.
Underclassmen prospects who impressed in Week 1: Joliet Catholic sophomore fullback Ty Isaac (6-2, 200 pounds) carried the ball 21 times for 159 yards in the Hilltoppers' 21-7 win over Montini.
Joliet Catholic junior running back Malin Jones (6-0, 202 pounds) has a handful of scholarship offers and is another weapon for the Hilltoppers backfield this season.
Montini junior wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp (6-1, 185 pounds), who has an early offer from Illinois, showed terrific hands and is a great route runner.
Simeon junior offensive tackle Jordan Diamond (6-6, 295 pounds), junior quarterback Robert Gregory (6-4, 195 pounds) and sophomore wide receiver Aaron Banks (6-3, 190 pounds) had major impacts for the Wolverines in their 47-41 win over Mount Carmel.
Morgan Park junior quarterback Dae'Shaun Hurley (6-2, 190 pounds) had a terrific game for the Mustangs in their win over Providence and has Division I abilities.
Providence junior offensive tackle Ryan Ward (6-6, 270 pounds) is another name to remember. He is the younger brother of current Northwestern offensive tackle Patrick Ward.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
