One of the top tight end prospects in the country is participating in today’s senior camp at Virginia Tech. Jonathan Hannah, a 6-4, 250 pound prospect who is viewed as an excellent all-around tight end, is making his first-ever visit to Blacksburg this weekend.
Hannah, who boasts 17 scholarship offers, listed his current top eight schools.
“I have a top eight,” Hannah said. He is rated a four-star prospect by Insiders and Rivals.com. “Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Clemson, Penn State, UNC, NC State, Georgia, and LSU. All have offered except for LSU. I’m trying to go down there before the end of the summer.”
When asked if he had any favorites among his top eight, Hannah said Virginia Tech is currently tops above the rest.
“I’d say Virginia Tech is my favorite school,” Hannah said. “Obviously LSU stands out too, but I’d say Virginia Tech. They’ve always been pretty high on my list. They have a prestigious program. They are not too far from home…it’s kind of close but not too close. I know they are recruiting Jameel Sewell and Cameron Sexton pretty hard. I’d like to go to school with either of those players.”
In an interview earlier this year, Hannah gave a slight edge to the NC State (where his father played football) and UNC. He does still like those programs, just not as much as Virginia Tech right now.
“NC State is pretty high on my list,” Hannah said. “Them and [North] Carolina are the teams I know the most about. State’s program is really on the rise, so that’s a positive for them.”
In addition to heading down to Virginia Tech, Hannah has made an unofficial visit to Oklahoma this summer as well as Clemson and NC State. He enjoyed his visit to Oklahoma, however acknowledged location could be a factor in his decision.
“It was great,” Hannah said of Oklahoma. “The prestige surrounding the place was incredible. I may not go there, but I still really liked the visit. Everything there I liked, the only problem is the location. I think I want to stay closer to home.”
Hannah plans on taking all five official visits before making his decision. He wants to narrow his list to five or six schools by the end of the summer.
“I’m hoping to get down to five or six schools before my senior season starts,” Hannah said. “I still plan on doing that. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that I definitely want to take advantage of.”
